Elixir 3 and Sektor

March 17th, 2010

Sektor – The new bull dog in the 150mm travel arena

This new sleek trail suspension from RockShox can only be described as a modern fork that  transcends all. With a diverse range of options and an amazing price to performance ratio, this trailblazer can hang with its more refined counterpart, RockShox very own Revelation.

  Sektor RL – Solo Air, 150mm, 26” Maxle Lite 20mm, White/Red, Motion Control Crown Adjust, Alum Steerer 1 1/8”, Disc (includes – pump) – 1966 g (4.33 lb)

Revelation set the bar for all front suspension that performs in the 150mm travel arena. To continue the RockShox promise we had to work hard to uphold performance and low weight in such an affordable fork. The “outside the box” approach in spring and weight development really tells a story about creativity and innovation in product development.

Sektor is about choice and being able to acquire a product that performs for your trail riding needs. We start with the 9mm QR, 15×100 or 20×110 Maxle Lite offerings and then provide you three spring options; Coil, Solo Air and U-Turn. This fork offers affordable and exciting options.
