RockShox Introduces 100mm and 140mm Pike DJ
RockShox is going straight for the DJ and slope crowd with a shortened version of the Pike. With 100mm or 140mm of travel in a 26″ only platform, the Pike DJ makes use of the Charger damper and bottomless tokens to create a highly adjustable jumping fork.
Jumps are getting bigger, tricks are evolving further, and the slopestyle and dirt jumping crowd needs a fork that facilitates this progression. Enter Pike DJ: little brother to the award winning Pike, with the stout 35mm chassis, it is light enough to boost higher, and stiff enough to shred berms harder, available in 100 and 140mm travel versions. The custom tuned Charger damper stands up on jump faces and the specific Solo Air system provides heaps of bottom-out progression to help butter the landings. Everything you love in Pike, but cleared for the biggest take offs.
The most refined damper ever produced by RockShox, acclaimed worldwide on Pike and BoXXer, gets the frequent flyer treatment on Pike DJ. An extra firm compression tune provides the level of support and confidence required by today’s slopestyle and dirt jump riders. Our trademark Rapid Recovery rebound tune, with beginning stroke rebound adjustment, helps control the landings, while Charger’s sealed design with an expandable rubber bladder keeps Pike DJ’s performance constant run after run. A low speed compression adjuster makes it easy to adapt to all course conditions, from smooth hardpack jumps to rough slopestyle courses.
PROGRESSION NEVER STOPS
For the 100mm travel version, Pike DJ’s specifically developed Solo Air top cap gives riders a highly progressive feel, equivalent to having five Bottomless Tokens installed in a standard 26” Pike, while remaining highly tunable with additional Tokens. What does this mean? A fork that will be predictable on every take off and landing without ever slamming through all the travel.
FREQUENT FLYERS WELCOME
Available in 100 and 140mm travel versions, with a tapered steerer and 15mm Maxle Ultimate, Pike DJ is the ideal match for modern and progressive dirt jumping and slopestyle bikes.
Does this spell the end for the Argyle?
