Rs Revelation Rc3 Vs Pike

Hi folks

How much more awesome are Pikes than Revelations? Are they "that much" better than Revelations to justify the price?

I went through this dilemma not so long ago. I was pretty set on the Revelations mainly due to cost. But part of me knew I'd always wonder how good a Pike was..
So I did lots of searching a found a new one on Pinkbike that the guy was happy to send and fiddle the cost for duty. It came to around the same as buying a new Rev here.
I guess performance wise I hadn't noticed much around our local trails, but once I got to Rotorua into the real rooty stuff it was pretty fkn awesome.

My Pike RCT3 is waaaay better than my old 2010 Revelation in every way (apart from weight of course).
Plusher, laterally and torsionally stiffer, pimper.
Revs haven't changed since my version apart from the damper (just had regular MoCo but with the dual rebound).


Pikes ftw.
