RockShox has announce the release of an amped-up version of their highly-regarded Pike fork specifically designed for the rigors of dirt jumping and slopestyle called the Pike DJ. Available in 100 and 140mm travel options, the $884, 26-inch-only fork features an extra-firm compression tune to manage high impact landings.

The fork also comes stock with a special top cap for its Solo Air air spring that reduces air volume for a highly progressive tune. It can be ramped further for an even more progressive feel and additional bottom-out protection by adding RockShox’s Bottomless Tokens air volume reducers. Like the standard Pike, the DJ comes with RockShox’s Charger Damper, low-speed compression adjustor and external rebound damping to tune the fork to conditions. Available in black or white, the Pike DJ ships with RockShox’s Maxle Ultimate 15mm thru-axle system.

About the author: Don Palermini

Chicago-born Don Palermini became a cycling-based life-form in the sixth grade after completing a family road bike tour of his home state. Three years later he bought his first mountain bike to help mitigate the city's pothole-strewn streets, and began exploring the region's unpaved roads and trails. Those rides sparked a much larger journey which includes all manner of bike racing, commuting, on- and off-road bike advocacy, and a 20-plus-year marketing career in the cycling industry that landed him at his current gig with Santa Cruz bicycles. Now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area, his four favorite words in the English language are "breakfast served all day," together in that order.
