Fork upgrade?

I've got a 2016 Rockshox Revelation RC3 on my Specialized Camber. I think the Fork has quite a bit of flex and nosedive even under just brakeforce. The PSI is right in the fork so thats not the problem. Would i benefit much from upgrading to a RS Pike or even a Yari? Thanks :)

    Possibly but the Camber isn't really designed for hard riding.
    Flex under braking isn't using a problem. It's only a problem when the fork starts twisting as you bounce off rocks making it difficult to hold a line.
    It's no good having a stiff fork unless you've got stiff wheels. Especially on a 29er
  • Have AMC Wide Lightning Wheels which is pretty stiff for aluminium at least. Dont really have many rocks as i live in Denmark.

    Nosedive under braking down to the spring and damper.
