 I've always been a Fox guy but after a frame exchange forced me to pick up a new fork I came across this one and did some research about Magura's forks. I knew they had a great history with brakes but knew very little on their quality for forks. There were many great reviews so I took a chance and bought it. I've been very impressed with it so far. The double arch concept keeps a very light fork very stiff (and I'm a big guy). It's very smooth through it's travel and is very adjustable. Mine has the Flight Control remote to activate the lockout. I absolutely love that. I never used my lockout on the Fox that this replaced because I'm not going to either stop to activate it or attempt to reach down to the fork crown and try & turn a knob while I'm flying in to a rocky corner that heads into a fast standing climb. That's just not realistic. But with the remote I find that I often pop it on before I get out of the saddle and it really makes a difference.
When searching for new forks I'd definitely keep Magura on your short list

Specifications Compare to other Forks

Price $899
Weight 1589.53 g
Color Options race-white, glossy black (other funky colours in the MAGURA Customize Program)
Travel 80-120 mm
Travel - refers to the distance the wheel can move in respect to the frame. Typically measured in millimeters, most forks range from 80 to 203 mm of travel
Spring Air
Crown Single
Rebound External
Rebound - is how quick your fork returns to a fully extended position after being compressed. Almost all after-market forks feature external rebound adjustment for easy fine tuning.
Steer Tube 1.125
Damping Alber Select
Damping - The process of absorbing the energy of impacts transmitted through the forks or rear shock during the compression stroke, and absorbing the energy of the spring during the rebound stroke.
DropOut Options Regular QR
Compression telescope system with DAD
Compression - This is the damping circuit that absorbs the compression energy force on the damper. Compression damping is used to adjust how quickly a fork or rear shock compresses when hitting a bump, and is adjustable on some products. When compression damping is too soft, this condition allows most of the available travel to be used without attaining control of the wheel. When it's adjusted too firmly, the wheel will jump or "dance" about when hitting small bumps, again failing to gain control of the wheel.
