The RockShox Deluxe takes the proven performance of the Monarch series and introduces it to the metric-sized chassis. The Deluxe RT3 features external rebound and 3-Position compression adjustment (Open/Pedal/Lock), while its SoloAir spring lets you add air to your shock through a single Schrader valve, filling both the positive and negative air spring chambers simultaneously. This gives you a plush, predictable ride you can set up in seconds, with the lightest weight air spring on the market. Rapid Recovery allows the shock to recovery faster between consecutive bumps, letting the wheel track the ground with greater precision. RockShox built the Deluxe with metric sizing so both suspension and frame manufacturers can significantly simplify rear shock sizing and fitment, while also providing performance benefits to both suspension and frame designs. It also allows for a simpler, rationalized set of mountain hardware, along with new mounting options such as Trunnion and bearing mounts.
