Plus, more time on your bike equals more chances to earn King of the Mountain on your favourite trail!Motion Control (TM) : Imagine riding on the moon. Rolling hills, crushed rock blasted out of craters, there's no gravity so you wouldn't even need a chairlift. Unfortunately, you can't ride on the moon. There's lots of gnarly terrain on earth. But, earth has gravity so you'll need suspension that climbs as well as it descends. With RockShox Motion Control damper technology you'll do just that.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. It gives you a plush, predictable ride you can set up in seconds, with the lightest weight air spring on the market.

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.
