Interbike Ain't Done Yet: Rock Shox Suspension!


News & Reviews
Jun 26, 2009

There you were thinking we were done from Vegas, but no. Here is Sram Part 3, Rock Shox suspension. Here you'll find the Vivid Air, new Boxxers, some photos of Semenuk and Peaty's bikes, and more!

Vivid Air drops 400g from the coil. I had the pleasure of riding one this summer, and it feels absolutely fantastic. Durability will be less than the coil, but expect it to remain quite sturdy.

The Vivid Air uses Rock Shox's new Hot Rod Technology, which reduces fade in the rebound of travel.

It will come in two models, the Vivid Air R2 and the Vivid Air R2C.

Peaty's Boxxer...

What could be your Boxxer...

The new Boxxer World Cup weighs 2714g and has all the standard adjustments of a top of the line fork.

Steve's bike looked like the fastest stationary object at the show.
