Make a good fork a great fork.

Introducing the Luftkappe air piston kit for Rockshox Pike, Yari and Lyrik Solo Air forks.

Pinkbike:
"The Luftkappe's change to the feel of the Lyrik was immediately noticeable on the trail. Traction was increased across chatter and the fork remained higher in its travel and more stable, improving the dynamic ride height without sacrificing the top end. My confidence soared when hitting sections with a lot of chatter and mid to large-sized hits, and the result meant more comfort and speed through such sections."

Taking everything we learned with the Corset air sleeves, the Luftkappe is a new air piston assembly for Rockshox's current generation Solo Air Pike, Yari and Lyrik forks. User installable and simple to set up, the Luftkappe transforms a good fork into a great fork.

  • Coil-like feel
  • Larger negative air chamber
  • Lower initial spring rate
  • Increased sensitivity
  • Improved mid stroke support & control
  • Superior bump compliance and traction
  • Reduced hand fatigue
  • Reduces required compression damping
  • Retains Bottomless Token compatibility

All Luftkappes are considered an easy-medium difficulty to install. If you've rebuilt forks before - they're a walk in the park.

Luftkappes do NOT come with the installation tools.

Awesome product would definitely recommend

by

Best upgrade ever for my fork, saves 400 bucks for the dampener upgrade as it fine tuned your fork to pretty much how and trail/dh/enduro rider would set up their suspension, it’s small bump compliancy makes rock gardens feel like nothing and the mid stroke support is amazing, the mid stroke support works really well with a coil rear shock and it keeps the fork high in the travel without it feeling harsh. This keeps your head angle slack when doing through rock gardens but keeps it steeper while pedalling. In short I highly recommend this product for any fork.

Noticeable Improvement

Very noticeable improvement. 2018 Rockshox Lyrik RCT3 Solo fork in 150mm. Doesn’t blow through the travel on the small and technical stuff any more. More support in the mid stroke. I had a minor installation issue but it got sorted quickly.

Rock eating machine

by

The Luftkappe turned my average fox 36 float 170mm 2017 into a subtle rock eating machine. Night and day better in every way to the standard negative air chamber.

.great upgrade, great value, literally changes your fork if set up properly.

If you have a pre-2019 pike or Lyrik and like to ride hard, buy this you won’t regret it. Better than debonair. Get the right air pressure for your riding style, bike setup and terrain, you’ll be very very happy with what a small and cheap upgrade can do for your fork. Does everything as Vorsprung promises. Just make sure you follow the simple instructions when installing the air piston cap and reinstalling lowers and it should be golden.

Best bang for ya bucks

Followed the youtube video link, fitted it up to my 2018 Fox 34 Elite Evol 150mm fork set the air pressure the same as before, removed 1 volume spacer and headed out for a gallop. WOW this is the "sh#t".
Plush off the bottom super grippy in the corners heaps of mid stroke support and a very coil like feeling.
Thanks again great price and quick delivery..
