The PUSH HC97 Compression System Kit utilises forward-thinking precision engineering to transform the damping quality of your existing RockShox forks. Handcrafted in Colorado, USA, and the product of meticulous care and devotion, the HC97 offers you a whole new level of trail and enduro performance.
The HC97 gives you the same compression technology used in the ElevenSix Rear Shock, but in your fork – it simply replaces the upper assembly of your existing fork damper to give you a fluid, free-flowing trail riding experience that is utterly unequalled. If you’re already running an ACS3 coil in your RockShox fork, the HC97 is the ultimate upgrade for unlimited access to flow heaven.
Compatible with all Lyrik, Pike and BoXXer RCT3/RC2 Charger 2 and 2.1 RockShox Damper Cartridges, the HC97 is a remarkable exercise in top-tier engineering. In contrast to rough and ready stock dampers, the HC97 enables fine-grade adjustment in compression – in exactly the range where it is needed – resulting in incredible adjustment resolution.
You can simply adjust the 28 clicks of both high- and low-speed compression on-the-go through two external dials to get the precise ride quality you enjoy. Turns on the low-speed compression circuit dial control a parabolic shaped needle which – in contrast to more commonly used cone-shaped needles – makes for the smoothest and most consistent transition between clicks. With the narrowed and optimised range of adjustment, you can be confident that every click will make a difference to your ride.
The shim-less valve design of the high-speed compression circuit ensures the very best traction, compliance and control on a wide variety of terrains. An innovative sliding valve seat construction ensures optimal compression at every stage of fork travel, giving you the best ride feel on anything from super-fast, aggressive drops to slower technical lines.
As with every product that PUSH produces, the HC97 is a testament to the need for its existence. As PUSH founder Darren Murphy explains: “After exhausting all our R&D efforts working with the stock compression assembly, we decided it would be best to build something from the ground up."
Every single detail is the direct result of obsessive care and development at PUSH’s Colorado HQ. Marginal gains always trump cheaper construction. By using top grade materials and refining its ideas, PUSH ensures that every improvement identified in development will make it into the finished product. What this means for you is lasting quality and a product that performs like no other on the trails.
Installation of the HC97 is no more complex than bleeding a regular RockShox damper – it can be easily completed by your regular fork service provider or even done at home if you’re familiar with bleeding dampers.
PUSH has supplied a comprehensive set of step-by-step instructions for installation of the HC97, so you can be confident that the process will be completed with minimal fuss if done at home or by your local shop.
By investing in an HC97, you’re not only giving yourself access to a whole new level of fork damping potential but sharing in PUSH’s vision to reach the zenith of suspension performance.
