    Pick whichever one you want, they'll both do exactly what you want them to do and do it well.

    The fact you're asking the question leads me to believe you'll never be riding them to the limits to notice any notable difference (nor would I).

    That is true, I am a mediocre rider at best, I wanted Pikes for their small bump sensitivity to reduce trail chatter as my current forks are quite stiff, just wondered how Fox compares to RS.

    Slightly less flex than the Fox 34 and better damping than the performance series damper in the Fox fork.
    Also much more straightforward to service yourself and service intervals are longer.
