Around every corner is a new discovery. Every kilometer brings a sight. A smell. An unexpected emotion. A fleeting moment that enriches your spirit of adventure. When done right, trekking–specific suspension enables more of these moments, with technologies that make riders more efficient and comfortable for longer distances than ever before.
Our all-new PARAGON suspension fork combines the premium level of performance and features mountain bikers have come to expect from RockShox, now with a purpose-built 700c trekking design. The heart of the new PARAGON lies in its ability to take the edge off of both road and trail. Less vibration is transferred to the rider, increasing their comfortable trekking range. Our lightweight, infinitely tunable Solo Air spring allows the rider to fine tune the fork to meet their personal preference. Paired with the in-ride adjustable lockout for those cherished stretches of fresh pavement on the journey, PARAGON makes trekking both smart and simple.
It’s thoughtful design combines a unique light mount on the fork brace and fender and rim/disc specific mounts integrated into the fork legs. Even the dynamo wiring runs under a sleek integrated cover down the fork leg, keeping it safe and concealed.
PARAGON ushers in a new era in trekking performance and efficiency - make the most out of every kilometer, no matter where the journey leads.

- Air Guides™
We print Air Guides on all of our air-sprung forks. Maybe not a technological feat, but it will help you set up your suspension in seconds instead of minutes. And more time on your bike equals more chances to earn King of the Mountain on your favorite trail. Maybe they are a technological feat.
- Solo Air™
Solo Air 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, like Yin and Yang. Giving you a plush, predictable ride you can set up in seconds, with the lightest weight air spring on the market.
This exclusive technology works a lot like the Secret Service. If you happen to hit a big rock when you have your fork locked out, TurnKey’s patented blow-off design takes the bullet for you, absorbing the unexpected hit instantly. When you think about it, it’s kind of noble. Compatible with both PushLoc and PopLoc remotes.
