If you fancy Dirt Jumping or Slope Stlye riding and want a light fork that can take whatever you throw at it, then Rock Shox Argyle RCT is a perfect weapon for you. We tested the new 2012 Rock Shox Argyle RCT and were totally impressed by its performance. The Argyle RCT is packed with Motion Control, Solo Air and Maxle lite options and is top of the line Argyle series.
Jumping is all about control. The more control you have, the higher you go. With sturdy 32mm upper tubes, the Maxle Lite thru axle and externally adjustable Motion Control damping, the sky is the limit. Adding an even longer and lighter 140mm chassis to the Argyle lineup, this fork gives you the precision to dig deeper, go higher and nail the landing so smoothly all you’ll hear is silence.
The Argyle RCT Solo Air fork claims to weigh around 2016 grams and has adjustment options like External Rebound, Low Speed Compression, Tooled Floodgate and a Air adjustment valve.
The fork also comes with a 20mm Maxle Lite which makes the life and ride more comfortable. The new Maxle has been designed and engineered to reduce the weight where it is not required.
After testing the fork for a week in and around city and on different obstacles we found the fork performing like an ace. It even qualified our long term test with flying colors.
