CHICAGO (BRAIN) — RockShox's new Paragon fork is intended for urban and trekking cyclists. The 700c fork is designed to take the edge off vibrations from the road and trail.
The fork has a lightweight tunable Solo Air spring paired with an in-ride adjustable lockout, with a PopLoc remote option.
The Paragon has an integrated wiring management system for dynamo hub-powered lighting; the headlight can be secured to an integrated mount on the fork brace. The fork legs also have fender mounts and are available in rim brake and disc brake options. Without a fender, Paragon provides room for tires up to 45c in width.
Accessory makers B+M, Trelock, Supernova, Spanninga, Fuxon and SKS collaborated with RockShox during the Paragon's development to ensure seamless integation with their products.
The Paragon comes in 50mm and 65mm travel options and weighs 1,846 grams (4.07 pounds). It will come with 1-1/8-inch aluminum and tapered aluminum steerer tubes.
MSRP is $253.
