The new RC38 AirForce fork uses the proven design of the other
RC-forks in Pace’s range, but instead of steel coils or elastomers,
has an adjustable air spring hidden inside one leg. The weight is expected to be around 2.5lb.

Pace’s new fork for the year 2000 looks set to take them back to the top of the cross-country tree. Though many racers praise their RC36 fork, this new model, the RC38 AirForce has everything that the hardcore racer wants, with non of the associated weight.


Using an air spring system with positive and negative springs adjustable to give the ride you want, Pace have added a thumb operated lock-out lever, crafted out of fine quality aluminium.

Pace call it “unrivalled performance and quality for the dedicated cross-country racer”


Design features we are aware of at the current time…


Superlight construction- 2.5lbs

Remote handlebar mounted travel lockout

Fully adjustable air compression spring

Fully adjustable negative air spring

Cross-country dedicated 63mm travel

Magnesium dropouts and single bridge

Disc-brake mounting as standard

Wide-bodied Monobox radiator crown

External rebound/compression adjustment


Lightweight carbon fibre slider assembly

Greaseport (TM) system

V-brake mounting clamp option






The RC38 AirForce has a Pace designed thumbshifter to lock the fork out when racers want a rigid ride. Machined from billet aluminium, we can imagine that people are going to be asking Pace to make 9 speed thumbshifters soon!
