Most probably, 1200-1400g apparently. That new proprietary hub business though, surely 20mm would be stiff enough without warranting another new 'standard'? But who knows, final specs in the coming days.

I bet the hub/dropout interface is square or hexagonal.

The straight 1.5" steerer is poor Photoshop assembly.

Here's the image from the RockShox Facebook page.

Managing the disc brake hose won't be all that neat if that is 100mm travel.

It's supposedly heavier than a SID with the same travel. What they are aiming for is improved performance, not lower weight. Since Lefty forks and telescoping seat posts seem to work with no brace, I guess they use something similar inside the RS-1. Oh, and it's 15mm, but with large OD axle ends.

any info on the hub? which bearing? and weight?




Erase uncertainty with the PREDICTIVE STEERING hub, SRAM’s new XC hub engineered for unprecedented stiffness and precision. Unique fork, axle and compression technologies combine at the core of Predictive Steering. The RS-1 fork never shifts thanks to the large-diameter TORQUE TUBE axle that creates an unbreakable bond, locking the lowers in place and maximizing torsional stiffness. The new Maxle Ultimate completes the connection with a tighter, stronger clamping force than you’d expect from a quick release compression system.

The SRAM PREDICTIVE STEERING Hub proves that being solid doesn’t mean being sluggish. Super-precise SPEEDBALL™ bearings mean lower resistance, faster revolutions and no more time spent readjusting play.
•Dedicated hub interface for the inverted RS-1 fork - creates an unparalleled bond between fork and hub
•Torque Tube is an oversized, solid aluminum axle that locks the forks lowers together
•Non convertible
•Available for jbend spokes
•Jbend: 28 or 32 holes
•Speedball bearings for smooth and durable rotation
•Weight: 165g

PREDICTIVE STEERING™

Unique fork, axle and compression technologies combine at the core of Predictive Steering. Fork twisting is reduced thanks to the large-diameter TORQUE TUBE axle that creates an unbreakable bond, locking the lowers in place and maximizing torsional stiffness. A wider hub flange spacing results in a stronger, more responsive wheel. The new Maxle Ultimate completes the connection with a tighter, stronger clamping force than you’d expect with a quick release compression system. Compatible with the SRAM PREDICTIVE STEERING hub and the RISE XX, RISE 60 and ROAM 50 29" Wheels, and featured on RockShox RS-1.

Seeker™

Get unbent. 3D forged and machined for lightweight strength, the flanges are angled towards the rim—allowing the spokes to be fully in-line when tensioned. The result: reduced spoke head breakage and better overall durability.

Speedball™

The only adjustment they’ll ever need was made back at the factory. Every part of the ball bearing comes from the exact same supplier—which means that each bearing bore can be precision machined to fit the bearing race exactly. With tolerances this tight, the days of adjusting play after every ride are over.

What's interesting is that the XC race market at the World Cup level seem to have reacted to the slow wheel change compared to a 15mm axle using the Kabolt style hex drive on a power drill.

I wonder how they keep the individual fork legs from rotating when the hub is removed? That would sure slow down alignment for putting a wheel back in during race service situations.
