The allure of the open gravel road might be paradise for adventurous riders, but it still comes with its own set of tiny speed bumps. With so many gravel riders getting off-road, it was only a matter of time before we found our small-rock rhythm.
The all-new XPLR collection is designed specifically to make dirt road journeys extra efficient and more enjoyable. Suspension adds more comfort to take the edge off. It adds confidence and more control when the terrain gets challenging. And it means riding faster while maximizing your grip on rough roads. Built from the ground up to gravel, the new Rudy features enough travel to keep your ride comfortably in control when curiosity takes you off the beaten path. Matched with the fresh Reverb AXS XPLR, we’ve created a gravel specific design complete with built-in compliance to really open it up on new terrain.
Rudy XPLR is purpose-built for gravel. More grip. More control. Way more fun. Whether the gravel gets choppy, or the tarmac breaks up before you, Rudy shines when the road gets rough or the singletrack beckons. Rudy saves your body from taking a beating, you’ll ride faster, for longer, and be less fatigued. It even steers better with more precise control ensuring the front wheel doesn’t deflect off sudden hits.
Charger Race Day damper
The Charger Race Day damper is built to meet the needs of the world’s fastest cross country racers. It’s the lightest damper we’ve ever made, packed with race-winning performance and efficiency. Tuned to provide even more efficiency for the gravel rider, rock-solid lock-out, and plenty of comfort and control on the paths less pedaled. Charger Race Day is the perfect fit for Rudy.
Smoother is faster
Designed specifically for gravel and e-gravel bikes, RockShox’s new Solo Air spring redefines the way a shorter travel fork can take the edge off the road ahead. This all-new design remains sensitive and smooth through small chatter and resists harsh bottom outs with bigger hits. Solo Air helps save your wrists, hands, forearms, and sanity. Ride faster without worrying about the bumps ahead.
Put a fender in front of you
To those who don’t need a fender, we salute you. For riders who grind muddy roads all year long or need the occasional coverage, Rudy allows you to customize your fender needs to the region or season. Rudy offers full fender compatibility featuring our new hidden custom stealth stay bosses for a secure and seamless look. If a short fender is more your style, the sturdy 3-bolt premium RockShox fender looks great and fits right in place. The RockShox premium short fender will come with your new Rudy and also sold separately as a RockShox accessory.
Not just for looks
Strong, light, and plenty of style. What more could you ask for? The Rudy Ultimate features a machined and anodized crown that keeps the grams low while quality remains high.
On the long unknown road to nowhere, tire clearance matters. Rudy puts space between the rubber and the bike, accommodating up to 50mm wide tires and all the mud they shed.
