TAKE BACK CONTROL

THERE’S A NEW CHARGER IN TOWN, CHARGER 2.1

Completely re-designed to reduce hand fatigue and fight unwanted friction, the new Charger™ 2.1 increases confidence and control over every trail.

All Charger 2.1 products

RIDE “HIGHER”

Taking a softer approach to High Speed Compression (HSC), the redesigned shim stack helps limit the impact of high speed hits and harsh braking bumps. That means more control for you and less fatigue caused by feedback at the handlebar. The new refined Low Speed Compression (LSC) adjustment range allows the fork to ride higher, giving you the most available travel and keeping your wheels on top of the terrain hit after hit.

TRAIL TRACKING

You know that moment when the trail almost disappears from under you? You’re floating over the terrain? There’s nothing better. Charger™ 2.1 features an all-new piston wearband to get you to that moment faster. Better oil flow management through the piston provides better damping control keeping the wheels exactly where you want them to be, tracking the trail ahead.

TRUST YOUR GUTS

Let's talk friction. Friction is the enemy. Friction creates vibration at the handlebar that causes arm fatigue, soreness and the potential to lose a grip on things. The new Charger™ 2.1 features an all-new SKF rod seal that decreases friction by upwards of 30% at the rebound shaft. Eliminating friction and reducing unwanted fatigue means a whole lot more control and hang (on) time for you. Happy hands rejoice!

AMAURY PIERRON

“It feels better on everything. On rocks, on roots, it’s a better, more direct feel with the ground. At the same time, the fork rides higher. The bike is now more reactive, so when I push hard it does exactly what I need to to do.”

DAMIEN OTON

“The big change was the rebound, it changed the precision on the trail. When you’re more precise on the trail, you go where you want, that makes you more confident and lets you relax mentally. The new Lyrik makes me so confident.”

DAKOTAH NORTON

“The big thing with this damper is that it’s really consistent all the way through, like when you run the compression, it never really gets harsh or chattery. I’m really impressed with how much grip I am able to get while getting support in the fork. There aren’t a ton of clicks, just five, but that’s the big thing, the changes are super noticeable, but still subtle. You’re going to notice you made a change, but at the same time, the changes aren’t so drastic that you’re going to wish you were in between clicks.”
