Excellent platform shock, with awesome 3-way quick settings.
No more wasted energy on pedal bob.
Super easy to set sag because of markings laser etched on it.
Rock solid reliable after a full year of usage.
Awesome upgrade for my single pivot bike (Airborne Zeppelin Elite). I mostly use the ""Climb" and "Trail" setting. I every once in a while use the "Descent" setting when the trail gets very bumpy. Just reach down and CLICK! Super convenient.
I ran my previous RockShox Bar 2.1 on the stiff side to minimize pedal bob. This did however make the back end bounce over bumpy sections almost the same as a hard tail.
The new RT3 platform quick settings are outstanding! No more pedal bob, well composed on the bumpy stuff, and I don't waste hardly any energy on hills.
This is by far the best upgrade that I have done to my single pivot bike...
