Product Details


UD Carbon Front & Rear Triangle

JS Tuned SuspensionJS Tuned uses two short, counter-rotating links that offer the ability to fine-tune shock rates and wheel path in perfect harmony to create a balanced, active suspension system that climbs and accelerates as well as the system descends.

I-Box Pivot SystemWith the suspension link nested directly above the bottom bracket, the bike is allowed a super short chainstay to give it a shorter, more nimble wheel base.

RockShox Monarch Plus HVMonarch Plus provides traction-gaining suppleness, giving you more control over any type of terrain – all in a lightweight bombproof package. Proven Rapid Recovery, DebonAir and Solo Air technologies come standard for this lightweight big hitter. Now with twice the rebound range, Monarch Plus allows you to take your riding to levels you never thought possible with a short and mid travel air shock.

RockShox Pike RCIt is the new-school all-mountain and enduro riders’ weapon of choice. It has received critical acclaim by the global mountain-bike media. It came out of the box and marched its way to an Enduro World Series overall title. And with good reason. PIKE was engineered to provide the plushest, most high-performance ride quality imaginable. Its Charger Damper with Rapid Recovery™ keeps you riding high in the travel, where the feel is plushest, and maintains your bike’s natural geometry. Its stiffness to weight to travel ratios are unbeatable, meaning you get a lot more from a lot less. Better control from fewer and more intuitive rider inputs allow you to charge harder. Which equals time and energy for more laps. If all-mountain riding and enduro racing is how you describe a good day in the saddle, then PIKE should be on your ride.
