We really like the changes to the new and improved RockShox PIKE RCT3 suspension forks.
Lighter weight for sure, and the new 'Charger' damper is a sealed but serviceable damper that employs an expanding bladder in order to compensate for shaft discplacement. The extruded bladder design is insanely durable, resists damping change during extended downhills and has virtually zero pressure offset for small bump sensitivity.
