RockShox Pike Returns For 2014

RockShox have announced a set of new products aimed at trail riders; the return of the PIKE fork, an update to the Monarch rear suspension and also the Reverb adjustable seat post gets some love.

2014 PIKE RCT3
The new 2014 Pike comes with 35mm stanchions and suitable for the following wheel sizes, with 26”, 27.5”(650B) and 29” options, and 160mm and 150mm travel models, plus a 140mm version for the 29” platform. The RCT3 damper is available in either Dual Position Air or a Solo Air version to complete the offering.

According to SRAM it's stiffer than the Lyrik and light enough to suit trail conditions and they have tweaked the Maxle Lite 15mm, so it should provide a stable front platform.

Available as an RC3 and R model the Monarch Plus has taken technology from the distinctly down hill focused Vivid, so it's capable of taking some big hits at speed. The new buzz-phrase is Rapid Recovery, which translates into the Monarch Plus being able to keep the rear wheel on the ground more.

As with all RockShox products, the new Monarch Plus models are available in various sizes to suit different frame and suspension solutions.

2014 Reverb
For 2014, the much lauded Reverb adjustable seat post is not changing much, there is a 34.9mm option available on both Reverb models. Whilst the Reverb Stealth gains a Connectamajig… I'm not making this shit up!

The Connectamajig makes it a breeze to route the hose into the frame when assembling the seatpost on a bike, and allows for several disconnects and reconnects before a system bleed is required. Reverb Stealth is now available with the Connectamajig hydraulic quick-release for the remote control hose.
