Weird Rockshox Tuning Recommendation

Postby cep32 on Fri 21st Jun 9:09am

I'm setting up a new for so figured I start with the Rockshox tuning guide on their website.

These are the results it gave be for air pressure.

What's the deal with the huge pressure jump at 104kg?

I can set up my own fork fine but it seems odd.

It's the data geek in me. I couldn't resist putting numbers into the online tool to see what I got. Then a graph is required of course.

The data geek in me tells me that Rockshox thinks that riders can't possibly be 105+ kgs

I reckon someone's calculations are in bar and converted to psi.
Notice how that step jumps by almost exactly 43psi? That is almost exactly 3 bar.
I reckon someone's done a boo boo
