Big-wheel riding weight weenies have long lamented the absence of the SID from RockShox 29er fork line. For 2012 they get their wish. The 29er SID World Cup features 32mm uppers molded into a carbon fiber crown and steerer assembly. It will be available in 80 and 100mm travel options with a traditional 9mm quick release as well as the 15mm Maxle Lite system. Weight is reportedly 1,582g or 3.48lbs.
This lightweight fork won’t come cheap. The price range for the SID 29 series starts at $750 with the SID World Cup expeted to retail for $1,190. ETA is late July/early August.
