INTERBIKE 2015: New Rock Shox Lyrik fork

Rock Shox introduced their redesigned Lyrik fork at Eurobike in August. Compared to the Pike fork, the Lyrik provides longer travel options with 160/170/180mm travel options for 27.5" wheels and 150/160mm travel options for  29" wheels as well as an updated Charger damper.  The dropouts incorporate Rock Shox's new Torque Cap design that incorporate a larger contact area to the hub. Currenly only SRAM hubs will take advantage of the Torque Cap's claimed increase in stiffness, but SRAM is licensing the system out to other hub manufacturers.


Estimated difference in weight between a Lyrik and a Pike with the same amount of travel is 170 grams.
