Today, RockShox introduced the latest revision of the Lyrik. It is a big-hit single crown fork that can now take on even more with configurable travel from 160mm to 180mm. The Lyrik helped bring RockShox back into the limelight, but it has not been updated in a while, offering only 26er sizes with older dampers. Recognizing the popularity of longer travel forks without having to go to a dual-crown fork, RockShox put all their new technologies in the Lyrik and upped the travel to 180mm.

This fork gets the fabled RCT3 damper and all the new options, such as Torque Caps to increase stiffness and Boost 110 to allow stiffer wheels and Plus size tires. The weight is quite respectable too at 2,005 grams or 4.42 lbs.
