RockShox introduce SID and Reba 650B forks

The 650B bandwagon continues to gather pace, this time with the news that RockShox have introduced 27.5″ versions of their SID and Reba forks.

Rather than re-label a 26 or 29-inch fork, RockShox insist the 650B SID and Reba forks, which both have 120mm of travel, have a chassis optimised for the medium wheel size, with a specific crown offset, unique crown clearance and dedicated lower legs.

The SID is RockShox’s cross-country fork and the updated model retains the Superlight Integrated Design structure combined with a 15mm Maxle Lite option and tapered steerer, which RockShox say creates a chassis which is both stiff and light.

It will be available in four models: the RL and RLT (with PushLoc remote option), XX with the hydraulic XLoc remote, and the three-position RCT3.

Meanwhile, the 650B Reba looks to continue the fork’s legacy of reliability and will be available in two damping models, the RL and RLT, with optional cable-actuated PushLoc lock-out remote.

Both models will begin to appear in the shops from December 2012 and are expected to retail for between €653-707 for the SID 27.5″ and €536 for the Reba 27.5″. UK prices are to be confirmed.
