  • RockShox Paragon RL Solo Air Forks – 9mmQR. The RockShox Paragon suspension fork combines the premium level of performance and features mountain bikers have come to expect from RockShox, now with a purpose-built 700c trekking design. The heart of the RockShox Paragon lies in its ability to take the edge off of both road and trail. Less vibration is transferred to the rider, increasing their comfortable trekking range. Rockshox lightweight, infinitely tunable Solo Air‚Ñ¢ spring and Motion Control‚Ñ¢ damper allow the rider to fine tune the fork for those cherished stretches of either path or pavement – Paragon makes trekking both smart and simple Paragon’s thoughtful design combines a unique light mount on the fork brace and fender and rim/disc specific mounts integrated into the fork legs. Even the dynamo wiring runs under a sleek integrated cover up the fork leg, keeping it safe and concealed Paragon ushers in an improved era in trekking performance and efficiency – make the most out of every kilometre, no matter where the journey leads Features: Wheel Size: 700c Steerer: 1.1/8″ Damping:¬†Motion Control‚Ñ¢ Spring:¬†Solo Air Adjustments:¬†Fixed rebound, low speed compression to lock Crown:¬†Forged, pocketed aluminium Upper Tubes:¬†30mm straight wall aluminium Lowers:¬†Magnesium, 9mm Quick Release Maximum Rotor Size:¬†180mm Axle: 9mm QR Offset: 46mmSteerer Tube Length: 255mmTechnologies: Air Guides:¬†Rockshox print Air Guides on all of their air-sprung forks. Maybe not a technological feat, but it will help you set up your suspension in seconds instead of minutes. And more time on your bike equals more chances to earn King of the Mountain on your favourite trail. Motion Control‚Ñ¢:¬†Imagine riding on the moon. Rolling hills, crushed rock blasted out of craters‚Ķ 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 Rockshox Motion Control damper technology you’ll do just that ¬† Solo Air:¬†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 in seconds, with the lightest weight air spring on the market. OneLoc: 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 Reverb remote.
