The RockShox Pike was introduced as a trail bike and enduro bike suspension fork in 2003, providing smooth, capable mid-range suspension travel. The RockShox Pike remains a favourite for many, having seen many updates and upgrades over the 20+ years of it's reign. More recent updates to the range include the Charger 3 damper and a clever small-bump compliance technology called Buttercups. The RockShox Pike Ultimate comes ready-equipped with these features as well as the DebonAir+ air spring to provide an excellent balance of supple suspension performance and support throughout the travel. The more budget orientated RockShox Pike Select comes with the same Charger 3 damper and DebonAir+ spring as the Pike Ultimate, but omits the Buttercups. These forks are also compatible with the Syncros RockShox Pike mudguard, providing protection against the elements without unsightly tiewraps around the fork legs.
