Manitou Teases Trail Suspension, Coming at Eurobike

2014 Manitou long travel trail suspension forks and shocks teaser

It’s been quite a while now since Manitou has had a long travel single crown fork, and there’s nothing in the current range to compete with modern trail/enduro offerings like the Pike or Float. Currently, the range is mostly 100-120, with a couple 140 options, but all with 32mm stanchions. Until you get to the Dorado. No more Stance, Nixon or Sherman in the line. Not for long, though, if our spidey senses are correct!

A 160 – 170 mm platform with 34mm or preferably 36mm stanchions. And of course has to be 650B compatible.

TPC+ please!!!!

Position sensitive damping.

Nixon with TPC+ was the best fork I’ve had. It wouldn’t dive, but would still track even the smallest of terrain. And then it could take the big hits. Had it for 6 years. From bike park to XC racing.

Wow… Manitou?

Now that is a blast from the past. Glad to see they’re still around.

the current iteration of the dorado is one of the best DH forks out there… i sure hope they match the high quality and performance with the new stuff as they did with the new dorado

Can’t wait! i hope it’s a TPC+ based system like the Dorado. Shim based seems to be all the rage now! simple and easy to work on.

@rode – your wish already has been granted. i believe xfusion’s current vengeance can do all you mentioned in a damn fine manner.

ABOUT FRIGGIN TIME!!!!!!!! My Nixon is just about dead and beside a new X-Fusion to match what I have on my Scapegoat already I wasn’t excited about anything on the market right.

Manitou whats it gonna be?

34-36mm Stanchions
160mm plus travel
20mm TA
Taper or non-taper

Marzocchi is cleaning up their line and bringing new models to market, about friggin time Manitou got it together.
