Magura Thor 2010 long-term review
The 2010 Magura Thor suspension fork is an impressive performer and among the best in its 140mm travel class. The old Thor's were a bit under damped - very plush, but prone to blow through the initial travel quickly - so much so that I would have to run a fair amount of compression damping even in downhill mode. Now, the fork feels magnitudes of improvements better - ie butter smooth at the top stroke, but without being over damped and harsh; and progressive on the latter of the stroke, but without harsh bottom out. Adjustments are also quite refined; the rebound knobs for example have logical tunable changes. The Magura Thor is also pretty stiff for a light fork - part of that is due to the double arch, but I'd hazard a guess that some of the stiffness is attributable to the 20mm axle - which is a very nice touch for a 140 fork.
