Up to 2.8" tyres in 27.5" and 29" wheelsizes.

The RockShox Judy was a iconic groundbreaking suspension fork of the 90s and now its back. This time as an entry level fork for Plus bikes.

>>> Plus bikes explained

The new Judy is built around a totally new chassis. There are clear echoes of the RockShox Pike in the overall stance and profile of the Judy to our eyes.

And although it says they’re for Plus bikes, they’ll still still non-Plus tyres in too, should you wish to.

Ahh… memories.

There is clearance in the new Judy for tyres up to 2.8″ in size. The 29er Judy will fit 27.5″ x 3.0″ if you want to run Plus tyres bigger than 2.8″ in your 27.5″ bike. Torque Cap compatibility adds additional stiffness.

There are two models in the new Judy ‘range’ (can you call two forks a ‘range’?) – the RockShox Judy Gold RL and the cheaper OEM-only RockShox Judy Silver TK.
