RockShox Enters Urban Market with Designated Fork

Sales & Trends

CHICAGO, USA – RockShox’s new Paragon urban fork is the result of 25 years of expertise in bicycle suspension applied to the needs of urban and trekking cyclists. This purpose-built 700c trekking fork is based on the same needs of mountain bikers.

The main feature of the Paragon is its ability to take the edge off of both road and trail. According to Rockshox less vibration is transferred to the rider, increasing their comfortable trekking range.

Infinitely tunable

The lightweight, infinitely tunable Solo Air spring allows any rider to fine tune the fork to meet their personal preference and match the terrain ahead. Paired with an in-ride adjustable lockout for those cherished stretches of fresh pavement on the journey, Paragon makes trekking both smart and simple.

Paragon’s design embraces sleek integration of accessories. For lighting, the wiring management system provides a secure, concealed path from the dynamo hub up to the fork brace, where a headlight can be secured using an integrated mount option. For the front fender, cast-in mount bosses are optimally located per rim brake or disc brake-specific fork lower legs. Without a fender, Paragon provides room for tires up to 45c in width.

Accessory partners

A group of accessory partners worked closely with RockShox during the Paragon’s development to offer premier lighting and fender solutions. These are B+M, Trelock, Supernova, Spanninga, Fuxon and SKS.
