The Monarch is a wolf in sheep's clothing. It's got tons of heavy weight performance with an air spring's weight. So, it's light enough to race on and tough enough for hardcore trail bikes. Perfect. Its oversize aluminum construction delivers smooth action, and the Solo Air spring makes set up a snap. Plus, setting your sag is unbelievably easy with the anodized gradient marks on the stanchion. And for those long fire road climbs, sprints during races and riding from your house to the trail, you've got RockShox's XLoc hydraulic remote lockout for the ultimate in efficiency.
