    Rock Shox Reba RLT vs Roch Shox Reba RLT Ti

    HI Everyone,

    I am looking at purchasing a 2011 Reba fork and wanted to know the difference between the RLT vs the RLT Ti. I know that the Ti has Titanium Tubes, but I don't think that justifies a $200 difference in price over the 120m RLT non Ti fork. I think the Ti comes with a handlebar lockout option as well, but I am still not seeing a reason to go for the TI vs the standard RLT fork. Thanks, Zach

    There is no difference, I called sram and asked. They said it's just a name change.

    The RLT Ti have the ti Blackbox damper cartridge and dual flow rebound. The rebound speed is factory set for the bottom of the travel, so setting a fast rebound for small bumps doesnt throw you off the bike on big hits/bottom outs.

    Ditto... the RLT has a regular Motion Control unit and rebound, while the Ti has the blackbox MoCo and dual flow rebound.

    The Ti is their way to get more into your waller.
    The two almost weight the same, do the same, and price very differently. With the RLT you've got 90% of the features...

    ...unless you really ride like a 110%, an RLT would be fine.

    I had an RLT, it developed an issue on the spring side - they upped me to an RLT Ti as a warranty replacement. Aside from the different damper, no real difference.
