Rockshox Reverb 1x Remote

Reverb 1x Remote – don’t like your current remote? Looks like there is about to be another option.

Although we understand that the new Remote will be available as an aftermarket upgrade at £90 we also understand that the Reverb 1x Remote will now come as standard on all 3rd generation Rockshox Reverbs. The remote paddle looks a lot like the SRAM Eagle shifter and that’s no bad thing.

Product highlights include:

  • Bleed kit and a matchmaker mount included.
  • Return speed adjuster (as per the previous remote).
  • 21g weight penalty over the old remote.

Most frames of 140mm and above have sufficient clearance for a piggyback, the bigger question is whether you need one?  So apart from appearance what are the main differences and why make them in the first place?Continue reading
