RockShox: The new SID Fork Collection

SID SL = 32mm uppers & 100mm travel / SID = 35mm uppers & 120mm travel

What’s the difference between the SID SL Ultimate and the SID SL Select?

The Ultimate uses the Charger Race Day Damper that is their lightest damper to date. That makes the Ultimate 142g lighter than the Select.

What’s the difference between the SID SL and the SID lines?

For the lightest option choose the SID SL, it has 32mm upper tubes and is designed with 100mm of travel. The SID has 35mm upper tubes and is 120mm of travel.

Is there a 51mm offset available for the SID and SID Select?

No they only offer 44mm offset. If your bike is designed around a 51mm OS then a 44mm OS will increase your mechanical trail and make it more stable on the downhill and at higher speeds.

If I have an old SID fork can I throw the new Charger Race Day Damper in it?

Yes the Charger Race Day Damper is backwards compatible on all 100-120mm SID and Reba forks back to MY14.

Is the SID series geared towards XC as well as the SID SL?

Yes, the SID is just a bit stiffer and heavier.

What do you have to say about the DebonAir air spring?

The DebonAir air spring is designed specifically for XC and maintains a higher ride height for control.
