Give Gravel Some Travel
The RockShox Rudy Ultimate XPLR Suspension Fork is extremely lightweight and built specifically for gravel. It features the Charger Race Day Damper and Solo-Air Spring, so no matter what the road ahead looks like, you'll have a smooth ride. It comes in 30mm and 40mm travel versions and fits up to 700x50mm tires (plus a fender).
The Rudy is energy-efficient for straightaways (especially with the lockout option) and offers enough travel to keep you comfortably in control when things get rough. The Rudy's all-new 30mm upper tubes are built around the Charger Race Day damper (RockShox lightest damper ever) and their proven SoloAir spring, which gives the bike precise steering and makes it light enough to make any roadie proud. Everything is designed with the needs of gravel riders in mind.
Charger Race Day Damper — The Charger Race Day damper is built to meet the needs of the world's fastest cross country racers. It's the lightest damper RockShox has ever made, packed with race-winning performance and efficiency. Tuned to provide even more efficiency for the gravel rider, rock-solid lock-out, and plenty of comfort and control on the paths less pedaled. Charger Race Day is the ideal fit for Rudy.
Solo-Air Spring — Designed specifically for gravel and e-gravel bikes, RockShox's new Solo Air spring redefines the way a shorter travel fork can take the edge off the road ahead. This all-new design remains sensitive and smooth through small chatter and resists harsh bottom outs with bigger hits. Solo Air helps save your wrists, hands, forearms, and sanity. Ride faster without worrying about the bumps ahead.
Front Fender — To those who don't need a fender, we salute you. For riders who grind muddy roads all year long or need the occasional coverage, Rudy allows you to customize your fender needs to the region or season. Rudy offers full fender compatibility featuring RockShox new hidden custom stealth stay bosses for a secure and seamless look. If a short fender is more your style, the sturdy 3-bolt premium RockShox fender looks great and fits right in place. The RockShox premium short fender will come with your new Rudy and also sold separately as a RockShox accessory.
Clearance Matters — On the long unknown road to nowhere, tire clearance matters. Rudy puts space between the rubber and the bike, accommodating up to 50mm wide tires and all the mud they shed.
