RockShox Updates Budget-Friendly Forks for 2019

We've just received the first of several waves of RockShox announcements for the 2019 model year lineup. Beyond the graphic updates, major changes include a Fast Black stanchion coating across the line and updated compression knobs on many of the forks. What's most interesting is the new DebonAir air spring update to the Boost-only Sektor RL, providing a clue of what's likely to come on higher end models. Forks will be available this spring.

Dive into the details as provided by RockShox, below, and stay tuned for more.


Rockshox Sektor RL

  • Motion Control RL damper provides low speed compression adjustment to lockout

Rockshox Recon RL

The RockShox Recon sets a new benchmark for value-based performance. Recon represents a perfect partnership between 32mm Revelation’s crowns and lower legs, and bombproof RockShox new steel Fast Black upper tubes. Adopting this proven chassis allows for shorter upper tubes, which means Recon just went on a serious weight-loss program. With the addition of its now-standard Motion Control damper, the re-invented Recon is the new silver standard for fun.

Highlights

  • Motion Control damping featuring low speed compression adjustment to lockout
  • New Fast Black finish for steel upper tubes
  • New compression knob and air cap
  • New cable-remote spool compatible with OneLoc remote
  • Updated graphic package to complement the entire RockShox lineup
  • MSRP: $249-319 | €279-349* | £249-319* (*Includes VAT)

Rockshox Bluto RCT3

You’ve probably observed more and more riders are on bikes that look “different” on your trails. Bikes that have wheels and tires of gigantic proportion – and we’re not talking about 29ers here. The thing is, even though fat bikes were created to float on top of snow, they’re just too damn fun not to ride on dirt. So how do you amplify your fat bike adventures even further? With a supercharged, ultra-efficient, first-of-its-kind fat suspension fork called Bluto. We started with the features you’ve come to love from RockShox: Fast Black aluminum upper tubes, stout 15mm Maxle, remote or crown adjustable damping, tapered steer tube, and the infinitely tunable Solo Air spring. Then, the chassis got the fat treatment by re-engineering it to meet the unique needs of fat tires and wheels. Everything from crown, to arch, to axle has been optimized to tackle the increased torsional loads of its wide stance. With more traction and control than ever before, you’ll never be happier you went fat.

Highlights

  • Motion Control damping featuring 3-position compression adjustment (open/pedal/lock)
  • Updated graphic package to complement the RockShox lineup
  • MSRP: $689 | €769* | £689* (*Includes VAT)
  • Availability: April 2018
