RST Bicycle Forks
First established in 1972, RST (Rapid Suspension Technology) has become a world renowned brand in the manufacturing of high-quality front suspension forks for bicycles. The RST brand has become a global leader in the bicycle industry by combining the latest in technology at a cheaper cost for the consumer.What Is a Bicycle Suspension Fork?
When deciding to buy either branded or unbranded bicycle forks, it is first important to understand what a bicycle suspension fork is and what it can do to enhance your riding experience. A bicycle fork is located at the front of the bike and has two blades that hold the front wheel in place. This suspension fork helps to protect the rider from rough and bumpy terrain while riding. This type of suspension found in bicycle forks is very important for mountain bikes, but can also be beneficial on hybrid bikes.Cross Country Bicycle Forks
RST's Reveal Series of bicycle forks is aimed at cross-country and mountain bike riders. The Reveal Series comes in three different sizes: 26 inches, 27.5 inches and 29 inches. They are lightweight and have a 32mm chassis, which is designed to minimise weight but still provide strength and support. The Reveal Series of bicycle forks includes Air Spring technology, creating an adjustable spring rate in the coil spring that gives the fork a more natural and sensitive feeling when compared with more traditional, heavier forks. Also included is a hydraulically adjustable cartridge to manually set the rebound level, a post disc brake mount and the option to add a TRL remote lock-out lever.City Touring and Trekking Bicycle Forks

It has a non-adjustable coil spring and a mechanical lock-out system. It also has an IS (International Standard) disc brake mount and an adjustable top cap that allows you to adjust the spring's load to suit your needs.
