The RockShox SID Ultimate is packed with all of the ride characteristics and adjustability that elite XC riders demand - Lightweight, stiff, DebonAir air spring technology that also keeps it under complete control whether negotiating rock gardens or hucking off drops, Charger 2 RLC damper with Maxima Plush fluid lubrication. A complete race-bred performance driven package.The BOOST chassis offers room for plus tires, up to 2.8 inches in both the 27.5 and 29 inches models. This 29 inch fork comes with a very short offset of 42mm. Furthermore its chassis is not only light, it also convince with repressively stiffness. The adjusting knobs offer nice design and are smoothly to control. Another innovative feature is the tool-free brake hose guide which makes the mounting much easier.
The SID RLC features a modified version of the from Pike and Lyrik well-known Charger damping with Rapid Recovery rebound. It is called "Charger 2" and features a compression adjustment with independent lockout. Apart from that the 27.5"+ (650B+) / 29" SID offers stiff 32 mm stanchions with weight-saving knocked-out magnesium dropouts. The DebonAir air spring with 100mm travel offers riders the best attributes of coil and air: low breakaway force, mid-stroke support, linear feel and tunable progression.
In addition the Torque Caps provide an incredibly accurate steering. Technologies Dig Valve - Dig Valve sounds the system which works in the oil circuit of the SID.
It provides the optimal level of control for both low and high speed compression, carefully controlling the oil flow to provide the rider with the right amount of support and impact absorption. The piston redesign allows the use of Rapid Recovery, a rebound tune that allows the shock to recover faster between consecutive bumps, for greater traction and a more controlled ride.The Dig Valve is factory tuned and supports the SID at mid strokes. Charger damping - The improved extruded bladder design resists damping changes during extended downhills and has virtually zero pressure offset for small bump sensitivity. This means no sacrifices in bump performance for shredding downhill while keeping the ability to maintain pedaling stability for those leg burning climbs. Rapid Recovery - In combination with the Rapid Recovery system the damping increases control while you need less energy at the same time. Rapid Recovery allows the shock to recover faster between consecutive bumps, letting the wheel track the ground with greater precision.
This more active suspension system enables the bike to ride in a higher and softer part of the spring rate. Rapid Recovery gives the rider access to more available wheel travel, bump after bump, to achieve a smoother and more controlled ride.Debon Air suspension - It is ok to be soft. Debon Air is not ashamed to give way under the weakest push. In fact, it makes shocks plusher than ever, right from the start. It might seem a weakness, until you take DebonAir to the trail. The connection between your bike and the terrain will be seamless, as your DebonAir equipped shock absorbs every little hit without any harsh feeling on your body. A shock so soft, you can push way harder. More Linear Spring Curve Lower force levels to move the shock into its travel 1st 1/3 of travel is what riders are most sensitive to.
More Traction and Control No chop on initial hit. Better traction; rear wheel stays on the ground reacting to small bumps.Power Bulge - Instead of increasing the stanchion size and adding extra weight, the Power Bulge simply reinforces the lower leg to allow for an oversized bushing for more stiffness and driving comfort. Sag Gradients - Don't set your sag correctly and you might as well be hopping onto someone else's bike.
For an easy and accurate suspension setup the sag gradients are printed right on the fork's upper tubes and shock damper bodies. So there is no need for another measuring tool. Boost - With revolutionary advancements in bicycle componentry, like SRAM's XX1, X01 and X1 drivetrains, mountain bike designers have been given almost limitless freedom to focus solely on the performance of the bike.
Each advancement demands that the entire package works flawlessly. Aggressive trail and enduro riders have been increasingly enjoying the benefits of larger wheels, but many still view 27.5" and 29" wheels as a possible weak link. Which is why SRAM has developed an open standard with Boost compatible components for SRAM drivetrain, hubs and RockShox forks.
Bottomless Tokens (optional) - The use of the optional available Bottomless Tokens allows riders to easily custom tune their RockShox fork's air-spring performance to best match their own riding style and suspension preference. Adding the easy-to-install Tokens changes the air-spring curve to resist bottom-out after a big hit, giving aggressive riders the power to attack the trail harder. Removing Bottomless Tokens makes the air-spring curve more linear, enhancing suspension feel for certain types of terrain or trail condition and ensuring riders who are less front-end aggressive benefit from 100 percent of their fork's travel. Torque Caps (optional) - The optional available Torque Caps make the bond between hub and fork dropout stronger, with an increased surface area connecting the two. This creates a stronger, stiffer interface, giving you a more responsive front wheel and more control.
