    SRAM XX1 or Rockshox Pike...Vote!

    I want to upgrade my Pivot and I am in-between going full XX1 or changing my Fox Kashima 32mm to a Rockshox Pike.


    Opinions and suggestions are welcome, thanks!

    You will notice the difference with the Pike more than the XX1. I am a huge XX1 fan and have been running it for a while now, but the Pike is a game changer. Makes the 32 look like a Walmart bike suspension fork.

    Agree with above. Drivetrain doesn't affect ride quality much. But a fork is one of your main control points. With a stiffer and more plush front end, steering control and traction will be vastly different.

    This is such an easy decision. pike.

    I agree with the other posters.

    The pike is amazing, it can actually make you faster. XX1 can't. Oh yeah and the pike is so much better than the fox stuff that's out right now it's kind of a joke.

    Save your money a get the X-FUSION SLANT. The fork is awesome and blow's away my Fox Float 32 150mm ctd fork. imo
    also save about $400

    Thats what I plan to do. That $400 is a lot of dough and I prefer open bath to bladders (Think older style Marz vs Fox FIT).

    No compression adjustments on the slant, though.
