Super Deluxe RC3

RockShox Super Deluxe rewrote the rules for rear shocks and now it’s rewriting them again. Changes to the interior surface improve lubrication and accelerate piston movement, so tires stay planted on the ground. Refined rebound damping regulates shaft speed, enhancing rider control and increasing confidence through corners and following high-speed hits. There’s also an expanded range of rebound adjustment, near perfect steps between clicks and a middle adjustment that’s centered between open and closed.

Technology

DebonAir

It’s ok to be soft. DebonAir is not ashamed to give way under the weakest push. In fact, it makes Monarch and Monarch Plus shocks plusher than ever, right from the start. It might seem a weakness, until you take DebonAir to the trail. The connection between your bike and the terrain will be seamless, as your DebonAir equipped shock absorbs every little hit without any harsh feeling on your body. A shock so soft, you can push way harder.

MORE LINEAR SPRING CURVE

  • Lower force levels to move the shock into its travel 1st 1/3 of travel is what riders are most sensitive to

MORE TRACTION AND CONTROL

  • No chop on initial hit. Better traction; rear wheel stays on the ground reacting to small bumps

METRIC SIZING

Metric sizing allows both suspension and frame manufacturers to significantly simplify rear shock sizing and fitment, while also providing performance benefits to both suspension and frame designs. It also allows for a simpler, rationalized set of mountain hardware, along with new mounting options such as Trunnion and bearing mounts.

Rapid Recovery™

Who doesn't want more available wheel travel for successive hits? The Rapid Recovery System allows the shock to recovery faster between consecutive bumps, letting the wheel track the ground with greater precision. This more active suspension system, doesn’t pack up and enables the bike to ride in a higher and softer part of the spring rate.  Rapid Recovery gives the rider access to more available wheel travel, bump after bump, to achieve a smoother and more controlled ride.

Sag Gradients™

Don’t set your sag correctly, and you might as well be hopping onto someone else’s bike. But why bust out plastic clips or rulers to keep your suspension fine-tuned? Our sag gradients are printed right on our fork’s upper tubes and shock damper bodies making perfect suspension setup easy and accurate. So give mom back her plastic clip and ruler.
