RockShox continues to tease the release of their new RS-1 inverted fork with an extended ride video that follows up similar photos and edits they’ve trickled out over the past month. This time XC racer Russell Finsterwald and so-called weekend warrior Chris Dewar shred some desert singletrack near the town of Idyllwild in the San Jacinto Mountains of southern California.

We did manage to get a couple screen grabs that show the fork in action (see our slideshow below), but as we alluded to in our speculation article last week, we still don’t have a full download on the new boinger. The countdown is on, however, as RockShox promises a reveal just before the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, Calif. next week. In the mean time, we’re gonna watch this again and dream of desert trails.

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.
