For nearly two decades, the Rockshox BoXXer RC Suspension Fork has been piloted to the top step of the podium at downhill World Cup races and freeride events more than any other fork. With such a legacy, it’s no doubt the new BoXXer has already proven itself with Steve Smith’s World Cup overall victory and Kyle Strait’s Rampage win in 2013. The new BoXXer features Rapid Recovery™ rebound, Fast Black stanchions and 27.5” options.
