 Fantastic fork.

Pros:
Stiff, good weight considering how tough the fork is, easy set-up, takes serious abuse with no problems.

Cons:
Some swarf inside lowers when stripped for lower lube (luckily this did not cause damage)
Maxle and not newer Maxle 360

 I have been very impressed with these. They are definatly a competetor to the bigger names. Top quality and reliability. And very plush. And yes the double arch does make a difference.

 Top notch suspension..Stiff, stiff and stiff. Only downside for me is the cheap remotes (have broken a few already)

Color Options glossy black (other funky colour options in the MAGURA Customize Program)
Travel 120-160 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 oil damping with adjustable Albert Select platform damping
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 20mm
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.
