Strength:

Amazing, 1787g weight. This OEM-only 150mm 29er fork is perfect for set-and-forget operation, due to its' two dial simplicity. I run at 30% sag and with Rebound set two clicks slower - the dry, desert chunky rock I ride in, it reacts butter-smooth. It never wallows at all. Low Speed Compression has a nice, firm platform for the steep climbs I do. I don't even miss the RCT3 "lockout" at all. Quicken the rebound for fast, rapid hits at the Bike Park and the Pike RC Debon Air eats up all that stutter bump chatter. It seems to react even better, the hotter the fork gets! This fork replaces a 2018 FOX Float 36 Performance GRIP that weighed a ton and the initial travel was always met with slight stiction. All said and done - the 2018 Rockshox Pike RC 29 fork is a worthy upgrade, due to its creamy range of travel, DIY servicability, weight and plush ability to handle big hits.... straight off the bike(2019 Specialized Stumpjumper Expert Carbon). This fork is only found as take-offs from complete bikes. The Pike RC is equal to the 2019-2020 Pike Select, with Charger Damper 2.1RC2.

Weakness:

Maxle Lite Stealth thru-axle needs to be upgraded to flip-handled Maxle Lite version.
