Rockshox Pike RCT3 Solo Air Forks - 27.5"
The Rockshox Pike RCT3 27.5” suspension fork sees the return of the infamous PIKE name to the Rockshox lineup. Completely reimagined the new Pike is the ultimate trail fork allowing you to blast through the most technical, rocky and demanding tracks out there. With a lightweight chassis design that delivers enhanced levels of stiffness to travel to weight ratio the Pike feels super-capable and tracks precisely on the tightest of turns. With a Solo Air spring and the inclusion of a damper that rides high in the travel where it’s at its plushest Rockshox have cleverly engineered the Pike to maintain your bike’s natural geometry, preventing the front end from diving as the fork compresses through its travel.
Already recognised as the all-mountain and enduro rider’s weapon of choice the Rockshox Pike has proven itself on the world stage bagging the Enduro World Series overall title. If aggressive, all-mountain and enduro riding is your thing then the Pike RCT3 27.5” will help take your riding to the next level.

Mr Rathie I had scoured the internet for these forks, Rockshox Pike RCT3, which were sold out everywhere. Merlin had them in stock and they arrived two days after placing the order on line. Brilliant forks delivered quickly. Great service and price I would definitely recommend.
Buyer Absolutely bangin forks. Huge upgrade to my bike. Super fast delivery and great price from Merlincycles too.
Mr Mcconnell Absolutely amazing forks. I had some older pikes on my trail bike however they only had 32mm stantions. If you get them on sale they are easily the best value for money forks on the market.
Mr Duckworth This replaced a 150mm Revelation and after a couple of rides to dial my settings this Pike is a noticeable upgrade giving a more assured front end when riding more difficult terrain. Worth every penny!
Mr calder Recently upgraded my hardtail suntour air forks and what a difference in quality and performance. Great price from Merlin cycles also included a free seal kit! Bonus!
Dom Brilliant set of forks, came boxed with upgraded seals, grey tokens and extra decals. Were easy to dial in and perform very well on the trail.
YetiMan Again I'm very happy with the experience ordering online with Merlin. My order came on the 3rd day after ordered it and considering it was shipped to UAE. Well for the Pike all I can only say, is its super plush, very good small bumps sensitivity and a lot of adjustment. You can never go wrong with RS Pike and its freaking light compare to the other leading brand. Another happy customer here. More power to Merlin and Rockshox.
Mr WATANABE It's everything that it's been said to be. Makes my Fox 34 feel like a Quadra. This fork is dangerous, because it makes me ride faster than I ever have!
Mr Watkins Best fork I have ever ridden. Bye bye fox.
Mr Baker These forks are every bit as amazing as the reviews say. They have transformed my bike into an absolute rocket. Damping action is sublime and the adjustments are simple and effective on the trail. Lightweight , beautiful and excellent value from Merlin. Delivered next day no issues. Great to have the pump and seal kit included too. Best buy for my build so far! Thanks Merlin!
Mr Bailey Out of the box these forks felt very good. Set them up in my usual way, went with the recommended air settings and ran the rebound as fast as I could get away with. Forks feel as stiff as the 36's on my other bike despite the 15mm axle instead of a 20mm. The maxle lite is a huge improvement on the old Rock Shox bolt thru QR. First couple of rides I've been impressed. Pretty plush, rebound needed a bit of work to get under control, travel feels more than 160mm (I've got one token in). Only downside is that the forks are totally outclassed by the Vivid Air on the back of my bike. I reckon I'll be able to narrow that performance gap with more tuning though. If it was an option I'd go for 4.5 stars for now. I ordered from Merlin because I knew they'd send the forks boxed with all spares, pump etc unlike other big internet stores.
Electroshiro The best single crown forks at the moment. This is the second pair I've had as I also have the 140mm 29er version on my Tallboy LTc.
Super plush action, rigid and light with it. Install the 2 red bottomless tokens before you even fit them to the bike. They make an already awesome fork even better as they help ramp up the end stroke and the bike is supported in the mid stroke more.
Merlin once again the best price on the web and fast delivery.
marcus Amazing fork. Plush out of the box. Good weight, super stiff. First ride on proper terrain says all the postive press is bang on.
