The Vorsprung Luftkappe air piston kit for Rockshox forks will make noticeable improvements to the feel of your fork. Traction will be increased across chatter, the fork will remain higher in its travel and more stable which will increase comfort and speed out on the trail.
The Luftkappe enlarges the forks negative air chamber to reduce the initial spring rate. This lets you run higher air pressure for more support in the middle and end of the stroke with improved sensitivity in the start of the stroke.
The Vorsprung Luftkappe works with
Rockshox Lyric 2016-18 (all wheel sizes) Solo Air & 2018 Debonair
Rockshox Pike 2014-17 (all wheel sizes) Solo Air (not Debonair) 2018 29+ wheel only Solo Air (note: 29+ Pike is actually a Lyrik chassis)
Rockshox Yari 2016-18 (all wheel sizes) Solo Air & 2018 Debonair
Rockshox Revelation 14-17 (all wheel sizes) Solo Air (not Debonair)
Not compatible with dual position air forks of any year.

Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how stoked I am about the Luftkappe. The improvement to my Pike RC 160mm has far exceeded my expectation. I was always stuffing around with air pressure and found too little psi gave reasonable small bump but to much dive and to much psi was just harsh everywhere. Now it's awesome!
