RockShox XC30 is a versatile, entry level MTB fork that will make a great upgrade against many fitted forks. A great choice where budget is tight, for a winter, touring or training bike, or any application where affordability and reliability are more crucial than all out performance. At Planet X's super discount price, it's hard to resist the upgrade! PuchLoc and PopLoc remote compatibility makes these a really interesting budget possibility, with a host of potential uses. Get a pair (or two) before they sell through!
These forks are brand new, fully guaranteed aftermarket 2013 models, direct from the UK distributor. They are not "grey market", ex-display or clearance units. Premium bang up to date models from the current 2013 Rockshox line-up available while stocks last.
Rockshox XC 30 is available with TurnKey lockout, three steerer choices, and travel at either 80 or 100mm. It features 30mm uppers (hence the name) which offer a good balance between weight and rigidity. RockShox say: Riding a bike equipped with our XC fork should almost get you arrested on the spot. Theres so much advanced technology in our most affordable cross-country fork, its practically a steal. But dont let that stop you from enjoying its plush, predictable ride. If anyone should get arrested, its the accountants who under priced it.
Every mountain biker can benefit from the RockShox technologies and performance features when choosing an XC model. The XC series is a new line of entry level forks stiff, performance-oriented and available with TurnKey lockout and travel up to 120mm. The model name stands for the diameter of the upper tubes: XC 32, XC 30 and XC 28. Ever hit a big rock with your fork locked out? Well, we have too. With this patented RockShox blowoff design, the ride stays smooth due to the small-bump compliance where unexpected hits are absorbed immediately even while locked out. TurnKey is compatible with PushLoc and PopLoc remotes.
