The new SID RLT will sport a 15mm Maxle thru-axle for extra steering precision relative to the current 80/100mm SID as well as a revised and sleeker looking magnesium casting with smoother lines and a proper disc brake hose clamp that doesn't require an unsightly zip tie.
Power Bulge lower bushing reinforcements are still included as well and the 32mm aluminium upper tubes are again emblazoned with permanent sag gradients for easier setup.
Internal architecture looks to be mostly carried over from the current SID with a Dual Air spring system on one side and RockShox's highly successful Motion Control damper on the other. The compression dial is now indexed, though, and the rebound dial is notably easier to grab and rotate.
RockShox product manager Sander Rigney wouldn't reveal the new fork's projected weight but it's logical to assume that it will slot in between the current SID Team's 1,485g (3.27lb) and the Reba Team Dual Air's 1,620g (3.57lb) figures. Likewise, Rigney declined to comment on steerer tube configurations but 1 1/8" straight and 1 1/8"-to-1 1/2" tapered seem like fair bets.
