RockShox released two new budget trail forks today that raise the bar when it comes to sub-$600 suspension. Find photos and details about the new RockShox Psylo and RockShox Domain forks here…

Inspired by their higher-end Pike and Lyrik forks, RockShox just released two promising budget fork options with sub-$600 price tags paired with internals and features that have trickled down from their more expensive siblings. The RockShox Psylo is a 130-160mm travel trail fork with 35mm stanchions, and the RockShox Domain is a beefier option with 150-180mm of travel and 38mm stanchions. Find specs on both below.

RockShox Psylo Gold RC

RockShox Psylo

The Psylo Gold RC is a budget trail fork that RockShox says is “bursting with value.” It features a new Isolator RC damper featuring three-position compression adjustment (Open, Pedal, and Firm) with an externally adjustable rebound, a tunable DebonAir air spring, premium bushings, and a new 35mm aluminum upper tube platform. It accommodates both 27.5″ (37mm or 44mm offset) and 29″ (44mm offset only) wheels, offers 130-160mm of travel, and weighs 2,320 grams (160mm). The Psylo Gold RC costs $539 USD. There is also a Psylo Silver RC and Psylo Silver R, but they aren’t available for aftermarket purchase. Check it out here.

RockShox Domain Gold RC

RockShox Domain

The Domain Gold RC takes design cues from their enduro fork, the Zeb. It features a burly 38mm chassis, 150-180mm of travel, and the same Isolator RC damper and tunable DebonAir air spring as the Psylo Gold RC. It’s also available for 27.5″ and 29″ wheels, has a 44mm offset, and weighs 2,501 grams (180mm). It costs $579 USD. There is a dialed-down Domain Gold R fork, but it’s not available for aftermarket purchase. Learn more here.
