New RockShox Sektor, Recon, 30 And Paragon Forks Announced

What’s in a name? For mountain bikers of all ages, nationalities and skill levels, the RockShox name stands for suspension products with unique ride quality and superior performance. This is for every RockShox fork and rear shock, from the award winning Pike to the multi-time Olympic champion SID, to our newest Recon Silver, Sektor Silver, 30 Gold and Paragon Gold. All these forks now feature the proven Motion Control™ damper as standard equipment at no additional charge, while the completely new Recon Silver introduces many design and performance elements originally developed on SID and Reba. So whether you are aiming for your next World Championship, or are just discovering your passion with mountain biking, RockShox has the right fork for you.

The Recon Silver RL

The RockShox Recon Silver sets a new benchmark for value-based performance. Recon represents a perfect partnership between Reba’s venerable crown and lower legs and Recon’s bombproof steel upper tubes. Adopting the Reba chassis allows the design team to employ shorter upper tubes, which means the Recon Silver just went on a serious weight-loss program. And with the addition of its now-standard Motion Control™ damper, the re-invented Recon is the new silver standard for fun.

Sektor Silver RL

While there may not be any podiums out on the trail, there’s no denying the ultra-light weight, stiffness and damping technologies of our World Cup level forks will give you the competitive edge against the locals at your trail. But that edge comes at a premium price, which is why savvy trail riders run the Sektor. It rewards you with the proven Motion Control™ damper performance and chassis structure as our exotic race products, only without the exotic materials – and price. A slight weight penalty is a small price to pay when it means you will have money left over for a few pints after your ride.

Paragon Gold

Around every corner is a new discovery. Every kilometer brings a sight. A smell. An unexpected emotion. A fleeting moment that enriches your spirit of adventure. When done right, trekking–specific suspension enables more of these moments, with technologies that make riders more efficient and comfortable for longer distances than ever before.

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. Our lightweight, infinitely tunable Solo Air™ spring and Motion Control™ 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 kilometer, no matter where the journey leads.
