First Look: The new fully featured RST ROGUE 160mm fork.

RST clearly is a global player in the fork segment, but the company has not had a great audience in the Enduro segment, until now. This will change as they have just presented their new flagship at Endurobike 2014: The 160mm RST Rogue.

The RST Rogue will be available as a 27,5° and a 26° version for 650 EUR.

The RST Rogue’s benchmark data sounds good: 34mm stanchions, 160mm travel, 15mm axle, a closed cartridge damping system with adjustable low-speed pressure level and a weight of 2020g. All this is available for a fair price of €650.

RST states that one can vary the air volume of the air chamber with the help of spacers. A valve helps to add pressure to the cartridge, in order to gain more travel.

The weight of 2020g for 650 EUR is good.
