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’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 RST rogue will be available from the beginning of next year, we can’t wait for the first test of the fork.
