Rockshox Totem Coil

Our review

Bombproof and exceptionally controlled. There simply isn’t a better freeride fork available

Single crown freeride forks don’t get any bigger than RockShox’s Totem Coil, and they don’t get any better either.


With massive lower legs making even the huge 40mm stanchions look normal, this is a rock solid anvil of a fork for forging your most mental moves.

In the 1.5in steerer version the stiffness and tracking are comparable with the best dual crowns, but you still get a complete 360 degrees of turn.

The power bulged lowers also include a screw-through Maxle axle and Speed Lube injection ports for convenience (with lube and syringe coming in a separate box). 


Mechanically pre-loadable coil spring guts keep basic performance simple and super smooth, but the Mission Control damping is the key to its ride quality and reputation.
