When I bought this piece for my lyrik,I thought I would get an evolution in the reaction of the fork and thus be able to pilot my bike better. I did not expect such a difference! The reactions of the fork and the filtering have progressed so much that places where previously I was very hesitant to ride, I pass them with my cup of coffee in hand, so much the behavior is sanitized and secure! I highly recommend the HC-97, you need it, believe me!!
I bought the HC97 on sale as a replacement damper for my 2019 Pike. As the Pike is still in good working order I have yet to install it. Will let you know when I try it out.
Us at RMR Suspensions in the Lower Mainland Valley have seem mainy of the compression sdjuster upgrades. Now the HC97 is my favorite so far. It just plain works, you can feel clicker changes and most of all give you confidence of what the front tire is doing all the way into your hands. Whether jumping or enduro trails it's a great upgrade to give you confidence.
