Introducing RockShox’s Flight Attendant
Whether you’re seeking to tackle technical descents, navigate challenging climbs, or simply enjoy a smoother and more controlled ride, the RockShox Flight Attendant delivers a truly unique suspension experience.
Put simply, it is an automatic suspension system. It uses sensors to read rider and terrain inputs to anticipate the perfect suspension position in real-time. Your fork, rear shock and crankset work in unison to detect every bump, pitch and pedal stroke.
Let’s take a closer look at what makes it a revolutionary force in the suspension industry and what makes it truly unique:
- Charger 2.1 Damper: The Flight Attendant features RockShox’s advanced Charger 2.1 damper, which offers exceptional control, consistency and adjustability. Its refined design and improved damping performance ensure a smooth and controlled ride, even on the most demanding terrains.
- DebonAir Spring: Designed to provide a plush and responsive feel, the Flight Attendant’s DebonAir spring system enhances small-bump sensitivity while maintaining excellent mid-stroke support. This results in improved traction, comfort and overall ride quality.
- Maxima Plush Fluid: To further enhance the performance of the Flight Attendant, RockShox has developed the Maxima Plush fluid. This specially formulated lubricant reduces friction within the suspension system, resulting in smoother and more consistent damping performance over extended periods of riding.
- Adjustability Options: The Flight Attendant offers a range of adjustability options, allowing riders to fine-tune their suspension settings according to their preferences and riding style. From external rebound and low-speed compression adjustments to volume spacers for progressive ramp-up, this suspension system provides the versatility to dial in the perfect ride.
The Flight Attendant’s innovative technology and meticulous design make it stand out as a game-changer in the suspension market, setting a new standard for what riders can expect from their suspension systems.
