Sam Hill broke all sorts of taboos on his way to winning the EWS – a downhill convert, in his first full season racing and on flat pedals, unheard of! Also unusual, was that he did it on RockShox.
Since 2013, orange and gold had dominated the men’s EWS field but Sam Hill turned that on his head with the Lyrik and Super Deluxe combo on his Nukeproof Mega. Now maybe we can get some clues as to where that came from as RockShox launch the revamped Lyrik RC2, perfectly suited for the bigger bikes and burlier trails of modern enduro racing.
This is the new Lyrik RC2 and the updated internals, housed in a smart red sleeve will surely make this 100s mainstay an even more enticing proposition for the burlier end of the single crown market.
