The new RCT3 Charger 2 damping offers more adjustment options on the low-speed pressure stage in "Open" mode and the "Pedal" mode has been re-tuned for perfect trail support. The fixed setting has also been improved and better tuned to the RockShox shock absorbers. In addition, compatibility with the OneLoc remote control allows the suspension fork to be adjusted while riding.
Charger 2 Damper
The evolution of the highly acclaimed Charger damper - the most advanced RockShox technology yet - takes its performance and sophistication to a whole new level.
The new damping design allows more extensive adjustment of the low-speed compression stage in open mode and a more effective pedalling mode, which is particularly effective on hilly trails. The Lock-Out mode of the Pike and Lyrik has been revised and the options for OneLoc remote controls allow the fixed mode to be set while riding. Fits perfectly to RockShox Deluxe, Super Deluxe and Super Deluxe coil mufflers with remote control.
Who doesn't want more available wheel travel for successive hits? Thanks to the Rapid Recovery System, the damper returns to its original position more quickly after successive strokes, allowing the wheel to grip the ground more precisely. This more active damping system won’t fail and provides a ride with higher and softer spring hardness. With Rapid Recovery, the rider benefits from greater suspension travel for a smoother and more controlled ride on every shot.
If you need more strength in your forearms for better control, hit the gym. If you want to make your suspension fork more durable however, you can do that with the Power Bulge. Other manufacturers simply increase the stanchion size, adding extra weight. Power Bulge, on the other hand, simply reinforces the fork legs for extra-large guidance. Besides, it's Power Bulge.
By using the optionally available tokens (volume spacers), the air volume of the fork can be reduced, thus influencing the spring characteristic curve. A smoother response with higher final progression is achieved.
Basic things like axles are often the easiest to overlook. If you ever lay a hand on the Maxle Ultimate, you'll be glad that RockShox has paid serious attention to the fine details of this piece. Only one hand is required for operation and individual, tool-free lever placement.
