Looking at buying some Pikes for my Giant reign 2,seen them in 150mm RC model at 400 euros,are these worth the money over the RCT3 ones at 520 euros??

    Ive got both - I would say the RC ones are nearly as good as the RCT3s. Most of the time I cant tell them apart

    Cheers Benpinnick,If i could honestly justify and afford the extra cash i would go for them,but im struggling with both,Ive been told they might not be covered by warranty as the are OEM sock.

    If they are sold as new by a shop then your consumer rights will still protect you if there is no warranty.

    The rc is missing the lockout and propedal function but keeps the low speed compression damping right?

    Yes - it has a fixed platform/blowoff and low speed compression damping.
