The RockShox Pike RCT3 29" Solo Air Fork is the choice of enduro and all-mountain riders ranging from beginner to world champions alike. An asymmetric chassis design with 35 mm stanchions gives the Pike an unbeatable stiffness to weight ratio, and inside, RockShox's Charger Damper keeps the ride plush over every kind of terrain. This is aided by its Rapid Recovery system that allows for the fork to better recover between consecutive bumps, and the RCT3 feature set allows for adjustable low speed compression, trail-tuned pedaling mode, and full lockout. Setup is as easy as can be with this Solo Air model, using just one Schrader valve to simultaneously fill both positive and negative air chambers for quick and predictable tuning with less maintenance and less weight.

Great upgrade from Fox Evolution!
Found this at biketiresdirect.com for cheapest I could find after weeks of research. I upgraded my Fox Evolution on a Rocky Mountain Instinct. Going from 120mm to 140mm has changed my downhill game. I only have the cheaper Fox forks to compare it to, but it has increased my feel and confidence when moving downhill and I have the data to back it up. I'm now keeping up with, if not passing riders ten years my junior. I thought they were stronger riders... they just had better equipment.
I would highly recommend this fork for anyone looking to upgrade. I primarily prefer to ride cross country with free ride tendencies. I ride 40-100 miles a week. I've had the shock for 6 weeks now.
