    Rockshox Recon - Silver/Gold/TK/RL

    Hi, I have tried to get detailed information on many places and many searches but I couldn't clear my doubts.

    I will probably get a RockShox Recon RL in the upcoming weeks. When I search for this model I get a huge amount of information regarding the Recon Gold and Recon Silver, but nothing specific to this model that retailed on March 2017.

    Also there is no Gold and Silver models on the website anymore, only the two below:

    Is this Recon RL the exact or updated Gold model?

    So... What is exactly this new Recon RL? How does it compare to the previous Recon Gold?

    That is an updated Silver, the Gold had aluminum stanchion, the Silver has steel stanchion.
    As far as I can tell it's the exact same Recon Silver RL from before.
    They may have updated the internals on the damper side.
    Some of the Silver models had coil springs, don't know if this still holds true for some, but I doubt it.
    Don't know how much you are willing to spend but a Reba is a much better fork. Another option is the Manitou Machete.

    i've been using a xc32 solo air. I just did the 100mm to 120mm conversion. it has a 15mm thru axle. very nice fork for the price. as far as i know it is the same as the recon silver.
