Manitou Mezzer Expert Suspension Fork
This enduro suspesnion fork features 37mm stanchions that are constructed from 7000 series aluminium and Reverse Arch technology, using the same chassis as Manitou's Mezzer Pro suspension fork. This allows it to deliver exceptional stiffness and strength, while also being incredibly lightweight at only 2030g (27.5” option). As a result, the Expert is the second lightest fork in the Enduro category, second only to the Mezzer Pro of course. Another highlight is it comes race-ready with an Expert Air air spring with Incremental Volume Adjust (IVA) for an impressively smooth feel as you charge across challenging terrain conditions. It also offers a wide range of adjustment features from its Variable Terrain Tune (VTT) damper that can easily be tweaked to suit any terrain thanks to its six positions. With adjustable Air, Air Volume, Rebound, 6-position Compression (Open, Trail, Lock), this suspension fork is the smart choice for anyone looking to dive into the Enduro Fork market.
Enduro Fork with Expert Air Spring
Expert Air is derived from Manitou's Dorado Air system and features a unique balancing valve that equalizes the positive and negative air chambers during the air fill process. This valve is activated only when the pump is threaded completely onto the valve. This gives the spring rate a smooth and consistent feel without any flat or dead spots in the stroke.
Six Position Variable Terrain Tune (VTT) Damper
Adjusted through a single external compression adjuster, both high-speed and low-speed damping characteristics are changed simultaneously when turning the knob. The damper features a fixed shim stack and a secondary shim stack that is preloaded by the external adjuster. In positions 1 and 2 there is an open flow path through the compression damper. In positions 3-6, the adjustable shim stack comes into contact with the piston, increasing platform force. This design provides a wide tuning range that combines the benefits of a low-speed platform and a high-speed progressive tune that can suit any terrain through 6 positions.
Hexlock SL Axle
Manitou's patented hex axle locks the lower legs in place, eliminating rotation around the axle providing unsurpassed stiffness in a lightweight tooled package.
