New Long Travel Single Crown Forks From RockShox – Lyrik and Yari

Words by Flow, SRAM | Images by SRAM

The Lyrik is back, fresher than ever. Filling the big gap between the RockShox Pike and the BoXXer, the burly single crown fork will go up to 180mm of travel in 27.5″ size, and 160mm for a 29er.

If you’re still shredding trails on your 26″ RockShox Lyrik, you’ll now be able to give it a refresh with the new internals available as an aftermarket upgrade option – The Charger Upgrade Kit.

The Yari is a completely new fork, with a more basic internal keeping the price down. With travel options ranging from 120mm up to 180mm plus a Dual Position model, this fork looks like a lot of boing for your buck.

INTRODUCING THE NEW LYRIK – FOR THOSE WANTING MORE.

Everything you love in Pike in a stiffer, more capable, longer travel option. We built the new Lyrik for the riders who know there will always be more to explore, more to challenge and more to conquer. If it’s out there, they’re going to ride it, and the new Lyrik will always be up to the task.

It’s built on a stiffer yet lightweight 35mm chassis, equipped with the world-acclaimed Charger Damper featuring new Torque Cap and Boost compatibility, and is available in 160mm-180mm travel options for 27.5” and 150mm-160mm for 29”.

Lyrik combines single crown weight and agility with dual crown strength and aggression, blurring the lines of capability that limit all other forks in its class. The new Lyrik is built to inspire confidence and give you that much more. So keep going – Lyrik is ready.
