When RockShox unleashed Pike into the world in 2003, the fast-growing mountain bike community raced to get their hands on the fork that was well ahead of its time for its versatility and prowess on technical terrain. Riders were exploring what all-mountain meant, and enduro was shaping into its own category, but there was one fork to rule them all… and that was Pike.
Today, nearly 20 years later, RockShox continues to live up to our legacy, setting the bar for suspension performance higher and higher to keep pace with the progression of modern riders.
Not only has the level of riding increased over the years, but so has the need to hone in on what different disciplines and categories of bikes need to be the most efficient, precise, and ruthless out on the trail, mountain, and racetrack.
The limiting factor? Technology.
Flying higher, climbing harder, riding further, faster, and more fearlessly than ever before. The only actual ceiling capping a rider’s potential is the capability and efficiency of their bike and suspension.
