Recon Gold TK


Not every XC rider is as addicted to riding as we are. But that doesn’t mean they want to ride suspension that’s “casual”. So we created the Recon. With two models to choose from, up to 120mm of plush travel, a 29” option, and advanced available features like a stiff tapered steerer and aluminum upper tubes, the Recon is a singletrack force to be reckoned with.

Power Bulge™

When you need your forearms to be stronger for more control, you bulk them up in the gym. When you need more durability from your fork, bulk them up with our Power Bulge. Other companies just increase the stanchion size adding extra weight. Power Bulge simply reinforces the lower leg to allow for an oversized bushing, increasing stiffness and maximizing your ride. Plus, it’s called Power Bulge.

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.

When you think about it, it’s kind of noble. Compatible with both PushLoc and PopLoc remotes.
