The RockShox Rudy suspension fork is your key to even more freedom on gravel adventures. Thanks to its finely-tuned travel, it gives you confidence and plenty of grip on demanding, fast-paced routes, as well as that bit of comfort on long tours and bike trips you’ve been missing.

Ever since gravel bikes first emerged on the market, manufacturers have been trying to extract even more off-road potential by equipping the versatile all-rounders with wider tyres and powerful disc brakes. RockShox has recognised the signs of the times and answered with the Rudy!
This gravel suspension fork employs the same technologies that RockShox successfully uses for the mountain bike sector. But it is by no means a shortened MTB suspension fork. On the contrary – the Rudy was developed from scratch and fine-tuned for potent gravel bikes. It offers lots of support when you need it, but takes the back seat when you’re pedalling.

The damper is the elegant and lightweight Charger Race Day cartridge, which also ensures excellent responsiveness in the SID SL MTB cross-country racing fork. It can be adjusted in terms of rebound speed and also offers a lockout function that almost completely prevents the fork from compressing. That means you can put full power to the pedal on steep passages, long asphalt sections or while riding out of the saddle, all without worrying about drive effects. Suspension is provided by the tried-and-tested Solo Air spring, which can be precisely adjusted to the rider's weight using the air pressure. The simple adjustment possibilities and the optimally pre-tuned damper make the Rudy a real carefree suspension fork.

In line with the trend towards stronger tyres, the Rudy Ultimate XPLR offers space for tyres up to 50 mm wide. Thanks to the choice between 30 or 40 mm travel, plus various mounting options for short or full-length mud flaps, this fork is also versatile – on sporty tours as well as epic bikepacking trips. The Rudy is equipped to handle any adventure and ready to start a new chapter in gravel biking. Are you?
