Featuring silky smooth travel in a new lightweight design, Monarch floats through bumps even better than before, turning rugged trails into tire-gripping velvet. The chassis is lean while maintaining the durability and adjustability needed to bite off huge chunks of burly trail action and epic cross country. Combining a redesigned Solo Air spring with updated damping controls, Monarch has the perfect balance of bump performance and efficiency.
The Monarch family of rear shocks is the most versatile on the market with two bodies to choose: Monarch and Monarch Plus. The Monarch features silky smooth function in a lightweight design.

Rock Shox Rear Shock Technologies:
Dual Flow: Suspension shouldnâ€™t pack up in rock gardens or buck after big drops. Thatâ€™s why Dual Flow incorporates independent damping circuits, allowing separate rebound speeds for big hits and small ones. A user-adjustable knob controls the beginning-stroke (small-hit) rebound, and a factory-set ending-stroke (big-hit) rebound creates the perfect suspension for whatever the trail (or park) throws your way. Now tuning your suspension for your unique needs is as easy as a clockwise or counterclockwise turn. In the RockShox world this is clicking toward the turtle or the â€œjackalope.â€ Featured in: Totem, Lyrik, SID, Reba, Revelation, Monarch.
Sag Gradients: Properly set sag can make or break the way suspension feels, so why should it be configured by eyeballing a zip tie? With this feature, sag percentage gradients are provided on the fork upper tubes and shock damper body, making perfect suspension setup simple, easy and accurate.
Solo Air: An extremely durable spring system. The positive and negative air spring chambers are simultaneously filled to equal air pressures through a single Schrader valve, simplifying suspension setup while retaining the light weight and plush ride quality of Dual Air.
