How much does rockshox xc30 weigh?

Im trying to find a website that knows how much this fork weighs but it just tells me to go to my lbs and weigh it.. im trying to put a lighter fork on my mtb becuase it has a crappy sr suntour xct fork. Anyone knows how much this weighs?

There's probably not much difference in weight with the XC30 & XCT, it wouldn't be much of an upgrade either.

$200 will get you a lighter air fork with the Suntour upgrade program.

My wife has a XC30 and it weighs a ton! For comparison, my daughter has the same bike but with a Fox Float 32 with remote CTD and the bike is almost 3 pounds lighter!

2460g or 5.42 lbs.

If you want a lighter suspension fork look at the Rockshok Reba or Rockshox Sid or the new Fox Stepcast fork.

Rockshox to Suntour would be a downgrade.

Depends on the model, Rockshox makes low end forks too.

A XC30 isn't anything special.

I'd put in a similar quality range as Raidon I linked earlier.

It's a ok fork.

I really like the raidon and the recon but the raidon has a bit better performance than the recon but the recon isnt fragile at all.. knew them by demo bikes.
