27.5” SID & Reba Arrive
RockShox Releases Premium Suspension for 27.5″ MTB Wheel Size
As the only full-line supplier of mountain bike suspension componentry, from entry-level to high-end, RockShox continues to offer the freedom of choice to its consumers with a new suspension product for 27.5” wheels.
Not simply a relabeled 26- or 29-inch product, the SID and Reba 27.5 forks utilize a chassis optimized for 27.5” (a.k.a. 650B) wheels – including a specific crown offset, unique crown clearance and dedicated lower legs.
2013 RockShox SID 27.5”
The ultimate cross-country race fork – claiming gold in World Championships, ultra endurance events and the Olympics – is now available for 27.5” application. SID’s Superlight Integrated Design structure combined with the 15mm Maxle Lite option and tapered steerer create a chassis with all the stiffness necessary at the weight required to win. For 2013, there will be four models available with 120mm-travel: RL and RLT (with PushLoc remote option), XX with the hydraulic XLoc remote, as well as the three-position RCT3.
