    RS Deluxe RT vs Super Deluxe Coil RCT

    Still deciding on components for my new bike and have the option to upgrade to a Coil shock from the standard Rock Shox Deluxe RT.

    About all I know about the differences is the coil is slightly heavier and believe it provides better pedaling resistance ?

    Being a non aggressive rider will the coil make for a better ride?

    It will help if you give your weight, the bike, what fork, and where you ride.

    You know I never even realized that!

    The bike is going to be a GG Trail Pistol, MRP Ribbon coil fork 140 mm, 27.5 plus
    And my weight with gear is 190 lbs

    And I ride intermediate trails at Carvins Cove in Virginia, very moderate climbs and decents, (IMO) more roots than rocks.

    To match the coil front and give better traction on wads of roots, I'd recommend the SD coil option.

    I am unable to find the coil shock weight on line however when I use the bike build drop down component selector, the Coil shock adds 1.2 pounds to the bike. Could that be correct, it seems excessive?

    The Deluxe RT is listed at 311g
