RockShox just reintroduced the Judy name with an all-new fork chassis utilizing knowledge gained from its exceptional Pike forks. The new Judy’s goal is to outfit entry-level bikes with the light and stiff performance of the Pike.
The two new Judy forks are Boost, which means room for Plus tires (up to 2.8in in both the 27.5 and 29in models), while Torque Cap compatibility adds additional stiffness and steering precision. Torque Caps refer to SRAM’s increased hub/fork dropout interface which is said to enhance steering through a stronger, stiffer connection.

The Judy Silver TK fork rolls on the same chassis and associated travel and tire clearance, but cuts the price with the less expensive TurnKey damper with lockout. RockShox’s time-tested SoloAir spring is still on board, and there’s a standard satin nickel finish on the steel uppers.
