The RockShox Lyrik RCT3 Solo Air is a fork that came back at the right time. With a need to equip longer travel all-mountain and enduro bikes, the Pike was looking a little on the lighter side of things and the arrival of the reborn Lyrik fitted the bill nicely.
With the Pike handling 150mm and under trail bike duties very well, this beefed up Lyrik was ready to steer the new wave of longer travel bikes with both 27.5” (160/170/180mm) and 29” (150/160mm) wheel options.
Once Fox had launched their revised 36 at up to 180mm travel for enduro style riding, SRAM needed comparable hardware for comprising big days on demanding terrain. A landscape that demands a little more than forks such as the RockShox Pike and Fox 34 are able to offer.
