For the past four years, I have been riding a 2104 Banshee Phantom (105mm rear travel) and it has the 130 mm RS Revelation (32mm stanchions) I think it has a 44mm offset). I am thinking of upgrading to a 2022 Pike Ultimate, 120mm with 42mm offset and 35mm stanchions.
I ride mostly technical hills. I do not bomb downhills, mostly interested in the climbs. I do not have much experience with modern forks as I was mostly ridding my vintage bikes. I have a chucky downhill for about 15-25 minutes, and my hands are pretty sore afterwards...I am trying to work on my braking/riding technique. On the technical uphills, it is hard for me to maintain momentum...feels like the shock stops when I hit a rock, and I am trying to work that out with the tuning... Wheel upgrades are in the not too distant future, but, I have permission from my boss to get the fork...
...so, do you think this upgrade will bring noticeable improvements?
