ROCKSHOX MONARCH PLUS RC3
As long as you have get the correct ‘tune’ for your particular bike this shock offers a truly fast and easy way into great performance. Set your air pressure, dial in your rebound, and off you go. The simple three position compression lever can then be used on–the–fly to give you the choice of ‘open’, ‘pedal’ or ‘closed’ should you be that way inclined. It’s in the open mode on descents though where this shock really comes into own, providing great support and control where needed, along with excellent grip. Compared to say a DBair or Vivid Air this shock is also a very light package, making it an ideal heart for a trail bike. A trail bike that is with the capacity to hit stuff hard and fast.
PRICE: £349.99 – £459.99
