The design of the RockShox RS1 ACS Solo Air Forks is inspired by the revolutionary original RS-1 from 25 years ago but they feature a never seen before chassis design.
The RS1 ACS Solo Air's steerer, crown and upper legs are all integrated together into a single carbon mainframe. This unique design enhances the steering precision, strength and the durablility.

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.
