Carbon Crown and Steerer For Rockshox SID

CHICAGO, USA – The Rockshox SID World Cup gets a significant update for model year 2010 shedding 110 grams. In the 2010 version the crown and steerer will be made of a hollow one-piece carbon fiber composite.

The fork lowers will become full magnesium compared to the magnesium and carbon fiber combination as in the 2009 version. The all magnesium lowers continue to feature Power Bulges, which increase stiffness and bushing durability.

The changes positively affect the overall weight, bringing the fork with full steerer in at 1400 grams. The BlackBox Technology carbon crown and steerer attributes have been tested in the RockShox labs and in the World Cup race arena since 2008. 

The new SID has a light chassis that passes the stringent CEN test standards. SID World Cup continues to feature the BlackBox Motion Control damper and Dual Air spring system.
