The RockShox Recon sets a new benchmark for value-based performance. Recon represents a perfect partnership between 32mm Revelation’s crowns and lower legs, and bombproof RockShox new steel Fast Black upper tubes. Adopting this proven chassis allows for shorter upper tubes, which means Recon just went on a serious weight-loss program. With the addition of its now-standard Motion Control™ damper, the re-invented Recon is the new silver standard for fun.

With revolutionary advancements in bicycle componentry, like SRAM’s XX1, X01 and X1 drivetrains, mountain bike designers have been given almost limitless freedom to focus solely on the performance of the bike. Each advancement demands that the entire package works flawlessly. Aggressive trail and enduro riders have been increasingly enjoying the benefits of larger wheels, but many still view 27.5" and 29" wheels as a possible weak link. Which is why SRAM has developed an open standard with Boost™ compatible components for SRAM drivetrain, hubs and RockShox forks.
- Maxle Lite™
Who obsesses over the weight of their wheel axles? It’s ridiculous, right? It’s just a rod of metal bolting the wheels to your bike. But then again, Maxle Lite is a nifty thru axle system that makes your bike both lighter and stiffer. And less weight makes it easier to get your bike to do what you want. Especially when you don’t need to bring tools to remove it, front or rear. And that extra stiffness gives you the precision to hit your lines no matter how burly. So maybe that obsession isn’t so ridiculous after all. Now available in 20 x 110mm and 15 x 100mm sizes.
- Maxle Stealth
Who knew we could make a thru axle disappear? The new Maxle Stealth offers a light, low profile alternative to Maxle Lite and Maxle Ultimate.
- Motion Control™
Imagine riding on the moon. Rolling hills, crushed rock blasted out of craters… craters. There’s no gravity so you wouldn’t even need a chairlift. Unfortunately you can’t ride on the moon. There’s lots of gnarly terrain on earth. But, earth has gravity so you’ll need suspension that climbs as well as it descends. With our Motion Control damper technology you’ll do just that.
The new OneLoc remote provides total control over your suspension at your fingertips.The increased leverage at the bar, translate in a smoother and easier actuation. Its countless mounting options (left and right, below or above the bar, tall or standard clamp) make it an ideal companion for SRAM's drivetrain, brakes and RockShox's Reverb remote.
It’s tough to find space for a remote that looks good and lets the rider maintain full control. Enter TwistLoc™. Twist to lock, push the button to unlock – on forks, rear shocks or both in tandem. With a consistent grip size and light-touch action, TwistLoc™ maximizes efficiency while keeping your hand safely on the bar.
