The Reba is no prima donna. Even though it's available with a host of race-worthy technologies, this cross country fork doesn't need the promise of a podium to give its all. It expects to be ridden every day, which is just what you'll want to do once you experience its supreme versatility. From quad-burning climbs to grin-inducing descents, the Reba is the ultimate trail warrior for daily duty. Reba is super consistent, durable and easy to service. Now the Reba is offered in a 110mm Boost option that can be run with 29er wheels or 650b+ (27.5x3.0" tyres) . Features:Spring: Solo Air. Steerer: 1.1/8" - 1.5" tapered. Adjustments: External rebound, lockout, low speed compression to lock with internal floodgate. Crown: Forged, hollow AL66 TV Aluminium. Upper Tubes: 32mm aluminium, Fast Black. Lowers: 15x110 Maxle Lite. Maximum Rotor Size: 200mm. Recommended Rear Shock: Monarch. Weight: 1662g - 29"Technologies:Air Guides: RockShox print Air Guides on all of their air-sprung forks. Maybe not a technological feat, but it will help you set up your suspension in seconds instead of minutes. And more time on your bike equals more chances to earn King of the Mountain on your favourite trail.. Solo Air: Solo Air is like a Buddhist monk. Its enlightened design lets you add air to your forks through a single Schrader valve, filling both the positive and negative air spring chambers simultaneously. So they're always in perfect equilibrium, like Yin and Yang. Giving you a plush, predictable ride you can set up in seconds, with the lightest weight air spring on the market.. Maxle Lite (TM) : Who obsesses over the weight of their wheel axles? It's ridiculous, right? It's just a rod of metal bolting the wheels to your bike. But then again, Maxle Lite is a nifty thru axle system that makes your bike both lighter and stiffer. And less weight makes it easier to get your bike to do what you want. Especially when you don't need to bring tools to remove it, front or rear. And that extra stiffness gives you the precision to hit your lines no matter how burly. So maybe that obsession isn't so ridiculous after all..

Rigid and suspension forks for road, MTB and cyclocross riding. Forks essentially help connect your front wheel to your handlebar, via your stem, enabling you to navigate corners. The majority are manufactured from alloy and carbon, although a few steel models also exist. My forks section caters for everything from lightweight stiff carbon forks to heavy duty downhill MTB suspension forks.

RockShox are one of mountain biking's most iconic brands, primarily known for suspension forks and rear shocks, but in recent years releasing suspension seatpost and dropper posts too. Founded in 1989 in the boom of the mountain biking scene, their first fork was the RS-1, which was followed throughout the nineties with the RockShox Mag, Quadra, Judy and Indy ranges. This success continued in 1998 with the lightweight SID models, and the heavy duty downhill Boxxer ranges. Due to competition from Fox, Marzocchi, RST and Manitou, sales slowed, and the company was taken over by SRAM in 2002, and has since thrived, with the Reverb Dropper post a common sight on mountain bikes worldwide.
