So you want a remote lockout but you don’t want to give up your shifter-style dropper remote. And you definitely don’t want to add another paddle that might result in locking your suspension instead of dropping your seat. Plus a cluttered cockpit is a sign of a cluttered life. Don’t give your friends the wrong impression. With TwistLoc, RockShox is here to help.
Not unlike a grip shift, the TwistLoc interfaces with your left grip and can be twisted to lock either your front or rear suspension, or both, depending on how you have it set up. And just to make sure you don’t accidentally twist things back to open, there is a button to press when returning to full-squish. The grip is compatible with all trigger-style dropper remotes and any shock with a cable-actuated remote lockout. TwistLoc will cost $110 and be available for purchase in June.
So what about that suspension you will be locking out? It will probably be something short-travel and possibly even XC-oriented. Something like the RockShox Sid. Well, you’re in luck! The Sid has been updated also. The Sid RL, RLC and World Cup will all feature the new DebonAir Spring we saw in the recent Lyrik update. All three models will be available as boosted 27.5- or 29-inch models with 100 millimeters of travel. The RL and RLC will also be available in a 120-millimeter version for 29er models. The RL will retail between $560 and $670, the RLC between $780 and $850 and the World Cup will range from $1,000 to $1,080.
