Luftkappe Upgraded Piston Kit for Solo Air Pike, Yari, Lyrik

Vorsprung Suspension Luftkappe Upgraded Piston Kit for Solo Air Pike, Yari, Lyrik

Product Description

Introducing the Luftkappe air piston kit for Rockshox Pike, Yari and Lyrik Solo Air forks. (Please note that adaptors will shortly be available for 2018 B1 Pikes and Revelations as the current design reduces the travel by 5mm)


Taking everything Vorsprung learned with the Corset air sleeves, the Luftkappe is a new air piston assembly for Rockshox's current generation Solo Air Pike, Yari and Lyrik forks. User installable and simple to set up, the Luftkappe transforms a good fork into a great fork.

  • Coil-like feel
  • Larger negative air chamber
  • Lower initial spring rate
  • Increased sensitivity
  • Improved mid stroke support & control
  • Superior bump compliance and traction
  • Reduced hand fatigue
  • Reduces required compression damping
  • Retains Bottomless Token compatibility
  • Optional 10mm shaft clamps available for self-install
  • Ok to run on all wheel sizes/ travel - please see below if you are running in conjunction with the MRP Ramp Control
Compatibility if running the Luftkappe with the MRP Ramp Control;
Pike 27.5" 140mm or less, the Luftkappe is fine.  At 150mm travel it does not clear.
Lyrik/ Yari 27.5" 160mm, the Luftkappe is fine.  At 170mm travel it does not clear.

"Does what it says. After being disappointed with many suspension modifications, I was cautious with my expectations regarding the Luftkappe. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the added midstroke support and small bump compliance were improved dramatically. I recommend this upgrade to everyone"

"Probably one of the best and cheapest upgrades for your fork. It really transformed the way fork behaves. Great small bump sensitivity and mid-stroke support. Worth every penny "

"I fitted this as I felt my pike forks lacked initial small bump sensitivity. However I fitted the luftkappe along with a new charger unit. What a difference. The fork now feels silky smooth."

"Absolutely fantastic product! beautifully finished, easy to install and has transformed my forks. I now have superb small bump compliance, with fantastic mid stroke support and a nice end of stroke ramp up. All this without needing to run extra tokens etc. Which i always found improved mid and end of stroke support but at the sacrifice of sensitivity. Basically Rockshox have incorporated the Luftkappe into their new debonair 2018 forks (or looks it from where i sit) If you have a 2017 or earlier Pike this is the best upgrade £4£ you can make IMO"

"Hi, must say this really is an improvement ! I have Yari -16 boost fork with 150mm and had issue it running too deep or hard. Now its firm, but really like the small pump sensitivity/ability take hits in Enduro races. Also now that I can adjust pressure way I like it & adjust tokens (only one now) way I like, fork has good mid stroke support & sensitivity. + I put low friction seals in at same, so these together made my fork feel like top line coil fork compared to old stock Yari.

"Great upgrade for my 29" RS Lyrik 160mm. Buy the 10mm clamp if you don't already own one. Beginning stroke got more plush even with 20psi more. "

"Does exactly what it says on the tin, which is a rarity these days. Easy enough to fit, if you follow the instruction video on vorsprung website. Heat the shaft with a heat gun or something before attempting to remove the bolt, otherwise you will chew it up, and you need to reuse it."

"Unfortunately I did a failure during installation and I lost ~10mm of stroke, :-( So I had to reinstall it again- but then it worked really good! So take care when you install it to save your time and enjoy your new fork :-)"

"Luftkappe was relatively easy to install. More air was required (for me above the recommended extra 10%). The biggest plus for me is the fantastic mid stroke support. Prior to the instal, my Yari fork was great at the little bumps, high speed rock gardens, etc, and ramped up at the end of the stroke (with a couple tokens) to reduce bottoming out but it always lacked the support for boosting off jumps or landing after small drops etc. Great improvement, very pleased."
