RockShox Bluto RCT3 Solo Air Fatbike Fork:
Solo Air suspension
Solo Air is like a Buddhist monk. Its enlightened design lets you add air to your forks through a single Schrader valve, filling both the positive and negative air spring chambers simultaneously. So they're always in perfect equilibrium, like Yin and Yang. Giving you a plush, predictable ride you can set up the fork in seconds.
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.
Motion Control ™ with RCT3
The heart of the Bluto RCT3 is theMotion Control damper unit with RCT3 platform adjustment. TheRCT3 dial on the fork crown lets the rider easily choose between the three ride modes: open, threshold or lockout. Furthermore the low speed compression and theDual Flow rebound damping can be adjusted to the terrain and the riders preferences. Dual Flow incorporates two independent damping circuits for small and big hits.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? RockShox sag gradients are printed right on the fork's upper tubes making perfect suspension setup easy and accurate.
Bottomless Tokens (optional)
The use of the optional availableBottomless Tokens allows riders to easily custom tune their RockShox fork's air-spring performance to best match their own riding style and suspension preference. Adding the easy-to-install Tokens changes the air-spring curve to resist bottom-out after a big hit, giving aggressive riders the power to attack the trail harder. Removing Bottomless Tokens makes the air-spring curve more linear, enhancing suspension feel for certain types of terrain or trail condition and ensuring riders who are less front-end aggressive benefit from 100 percent of their fork's travel.
