PRESS RELEASE

Rock Shox Introduces the Signature Series of Suspension

Date Apr 4, 2019

Why do we do it?

Why do we gear up in the hundred-degree heat?

Head out early in the freezing rain?

Drive four hours, only to ride two?

Grind up mountains, when the lift’s right there?

obsess the science, when riding is an art?

Or push ourselves until we see stars instead of trail?

Why do we love something that will never love us back?

Why?

Because there’s nothing better

‘NOTHING BETTER’ IS A MINDSET, THAT SUBLIME FEELING OF EARNING LIFE’S LITTLE VICTORIES. IT’S PUSHING UP A HILL TO CATCH THE FIRST RAYS OF DAWN. SOAKING IN A HOT TUB AFTER A MUSCLE-RIPPING RIDE. CRACKING A COLD BEER IN 100-DEGREE HEAT. IT’S ABOUT EARNED BLISS. GRIT AND GLORY. THE SMALL SACRIFICES FOR THE BIG “WHOA.”
It’s time we celebrate why we all love the ride and have some fun. But first, we all know there’s nothing better than new product, and we all love new product. Let’s drop in…

CHARGER 2.1 DAMPER

There’s a new charger in town. Charger™ 2.1

Completely re-designed to reduce hand fatigue and fight unwanted friction, the new Charger™ 2.1 increases confidence and control over every trail. It’s no coincidence Charger™ 2.1 was designed and engineered at 6035ft in Colorado. Taking a softer approach to High Speed Compression (HSC), the redesigned shim stack helps limit the impact of high speed hits and harsh braking bumps. That means more control for you and less fatigue caused by feedback at the handlebar. The new refined Low Speed Compression (LSC) adjustment range allows the fork to ride higher, giving you the most available travel and keeping your wheels on top of the terrain hit after hit.

R_MY20PIKE_SLO_190225_ParisGore_131.jpg

You know that moment when the trail almost disappears from under you? You’re floating over the terrain? There’s nothing better. Charger™ 2.1 features an all-new piston wearband to get you to that moment faster. Better oil flow management through the piston provides better damping control keeping the wheels exactly where you want them to be, tracking the trail ahead.

NZEnduro19_BB_898A0249.jpg

Let’s talk friction. Friction is the enemy. Friction creates vibration at the handlebar that causes arm fatigue, soreness and the potential to lose a grip on things. The new Charger™ 2.1 features an all-new SKF rod seal that decreases friction by upwards of 30% at the rebound shaft. Eliminating friction and reducing unwanted fatigue means a whole lot more control and hang (on) time for you. Happy hands rejoice!

MAXIMA PLUSH FLUID

The best suspension requires the best fluid.

Developed with the world’s fastest racers, on the world’s toughest circuits. Maxima Plush Fluid is designed to protect from suspension wear, reduce friction, and silence damper noise while maintaining a consistent feel in all temperatures.

PG_20190308_RS_162.jpg

SKF WIPER SEALS

Friction down. Dirt out.

Everyone loves a good collaboration, which is why we’ve been working with SKF, the world’s highest-performance seal manufacturer, for over 5 years. Together we’ll provide ultra-low friction wiper seals, less fatigue, and unmatched suspension feel, all while keeping the dirt where it belongs- because no one wants dirt in there.

Although these will probably rock from a performance standpoint, the names remind me more than a little bit of K2 skis from the 70s.

Cheeseburger Deluxe, anybody?!
