The RS1 ACS Accelerator XLoc Remote Solo Air 100mm Tapered 27.5'' Predictive Steering Fork from Rockshox is a redesign of the original fork that revolutionized mountain biking. The new design features a chassis design never seen before, which integrates the fork's steerer tube, crown and legs into a single carbon main frame. However it is the Predictive steering that really makes this fork unique, which combines unique fork, axle and compression technologies at their core. Fork twisting is reduced thanks to the large-diameter TORQUE TUBE axle that creates an unbreakable bond, locking the lowers in place and maximizing torsional stiffness. A wider hub flange spacing results in a stronger, more responsive wheel. The new Maxle Ultimate completes the connection with a tighter, stronger clamping force than you'd expect with a quick release compression system. The fork features the all new Accelerator Damper with Dig Valve and Rapid Recovery, which combines incredible small bump performance with an ultra-efficient lockout, ideal for XC Racing. The Accelerator Damper was completely re-evaluated to see how XC athletes produce efficient power and navigate course conditions while fatigued. The firmer lockout give maximum spring efficiency and the rapid recovery system allows the fork to keep on riding high with the plushest of travel. The Dig Valve compression tune was created to manage diving during successive hits and heavy braking. As well as all this you also get Solo Air Springs and XLoc Sprint remotes. The Solo Air system 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. Giving you a plush, predictable ride you can set up in seconds, with the lightest weight air spring on the market. The XLoc Sprint Remote is a hydraulic lockout that helps you rule the trails. They are completely sealed and dependable lockout control through the click of an easy-to-reach button that can be triggered with a single thumb press. Press on to unlock, press again to lock. It's just that easy. The forks are available in Black/Red or White with a 1.5'' tapered steerer tube.

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.
