Sam Hill’s Nukeproof Mega proudly showing off updated RockShox line.

RockShox has overhauled the Sektor, Reba, Recon, Judy, 30, Bluto, and Pike DJ suspension forks with added performance and value. Moving further down the line the long travel forks are also updated. The Lyrik and Yari get a new, smoother DebonAir air spring, while the Lyrik receives the top-level RC2 Charger 2 damper cartridge. Scroll down to read the full RockShox press release on all the changes and updates.

RockShox Lyrik

The new Lyrik in red looks fantastic.

RockShox LyriK RC2

Enduro stages are steeper, longer and meaner than ever before, and RockShox Lyrik RC2 is here to humble them. The new Charger 2 RC2 damper offers independent high and low-speed compression adjustment to make molehills out of mountains. The new DebonAir air spring reduces friction from every single moving part, improving bump absorption and response under load, and drastically reducing rider fatigue. New, shorter offset options make Lyrik RC2 compatible with the confidence-inspiring (and smile-inducing) machines being dreamed up by bike designers around the world.

Features and Benefits
  • New friction-reducing DebonAir air spring delivers the most responsive forks and rear shocks in RockShox history, maintaining traction in more conditions than ever before
  • New graphics with a BoXXer Red fork color option
  • New Charger 2 RC2 damper with independent high and low speed compression adjustment, allowing more adjustability than ever before
  • External Rebound damping adjustment
  • Price: $999
  • On sale: April 2018
RockShox Yari RC

The updated RockShox Yari.

RockShox Yari RC

Yari brings Lyrik’s acclaimed look and proven features – 35mm chassis, Fast Black upper tubes and new DebonAir air spring – to a wider audience. The Motion Control damper features Rapid Recovery rebound and its high-speed compression circuit is tuned to match the feeling of the Charger damper.

Features and Benefits
  • New friction-reducing DebonAir air spring delivers the most responsive forks and rear shocks in RockShox history, maintaining traction in more conditions than ever before
  • Motion Control RC damper tuned to mimic the feel of a Charger damper (low speed compression adjustment)
  • External rebound damping adjustment.
  • Price: $699
  • On sale: April 2018
RockShox Pike RCT3

The updated RockShox Pike in Black for 2018.

RockShox Pike

When RockShox re-launched Pike in 2013, it immediately became the benchmark for Trail and Enduro forks, with a supple and progressive feel that simply could not be matched. To ensure Pike’s continuing domination of the class, we put it on a weight-loss program, added the new Charger 2 damper, included remote options, and gave it a graphic-package makeover that aligns with the all-new chassis design. Riders will benefit from Pike’s increased steering authority – thanks to BOOST-only spacing, stiffness and lighter overall weight – the new friction-reducing DebonAir air spring and the potential to run wider (2.8″) tires.

Features and Benefits
  • New friction-reducing DebonAir air spring delivers the most responsive forks and rear shocks in RockShox history, maintaining traction in more conditions than ever before
  • Charger 2 damper is lighter and more bump-compliant than original Charger, and the adjustment knobs are more comfortable to turn.
  • Price: $879-949
  • On sale: April 2018
RockShox Revelation

The updated RockShox Revelation in Diffusion Black for 2018.

RockShox Revelation

Revelation has grown, and after representing the original long travel forks, it’s ready to tackle the most demanding trail and enduro rides. The chassis is directly derived from Pike, with 35mm upper tubes for unmatched stiffness and to match the aggressive look of modern trail and enduro bikes. Damping is handled by our proven Motion Control with a specific tune to match Charger’s feeling, with travel options up to 160mm for 27.5″ and 150mm for 29″. The new DebonAir air spring reduces friction from every single moving part, maintaining traction in more conditions than ever before.

Features and Benefits
  • New friction-reducing DebonAir air spring delivers the most responsive forks and rear shocks in RockShox history, maintaining traction in more conditions than ever before
  • Motion Control RC tuned to mimic the feel of a Charger damper (low speed compression adjustment to firm)
  • External Rebound damping adjustment
  • OneLoc remote compatibility.
  • Price: $649-719
