SR Suntour have developed a new downhill suspension mountain bike fork. The 8" travel dual crown fork called RUX is being developed along side their WERX rider team and features 38mm stanchions.

The damping is handled by a long travel version of their RC2 cartridge which is currently used on the Durolux suspension fork. The fork has external adjustments for both low and high speed compression, as well as rebound. The cartridge is a sealed, full aluminum unit that keeps the damping oil separate from the lubrication fluid, but is also fully serviceable by the consumer. The RC2 cartridge also receives Suntour's QSP (Quick Service Product) designation, meaning that it can be pulled out and serviced or swapped.

The left fork leg houses the Rux's air spring, with its schrader valve hidden under the anodized aluminum top cap. The fork employs a volume adjustment system via removable spacers which allow riders to create a more progressive or linear stroke depending on the track conditions. The right hand leg houses the RC2 damping cartridge. Compression adjustments are made by via dials at the top of the fork leg, with the rebound adjuster on the bottom of the fork leg.

The Rux offers enough tire clearance for even the largest volume mountain bike tires that are currently out there. The fork's 20mm thru-axle system doesn't require any tools, but it does differ from Suntour's tool-less Q-Loc axle clamp in that it has been designed to provide more clamping force.

The Rux's top crown uses a standard direct mount stem pattern that allows riders to choose from the large selection of aftermarket choices.
