4 Suspension Forks You've Probably Never Seen - Taipei Cycle Show 2018

Oct 31, 2018 at 4:38
by Mike Levy  
Depending on what your needs and how much money you're okay parting with, you can pick anything from Fox, RockShox, DVO, Marzocchi, Manitou, X-Fusion, or MRP that will likely do you right. As long as you get the right horse for the course, of course. There are other options, though... Sort of. Let's call them ''less well-known'' forks that might be worth checking out. Or not. Here are four forks that may or may not tickle your fancy.


Taipei Cycle Show
Inverted forks have a bit of checkered past, but the Rebel does look interesting.


Did you know that RST stands for "Rapid Suspension Technology,''? Because I sure didn't, and I also hadn't seen their Rebel inverted fork before this trip to the Taipei Cycle Show. While this thing looks like a stocky fork, you can actually run it as low as 80mm for 29'' wheels, or 100mm for 27.5'' hoops. The travel tops out at 130mm for big wheels and 150mm for 27.5'' wheels. Its lower tubes are just 32mm across, but the magnesium uppers do look beefy as all hell.

I'm behind the times because this is actually the second version of the Rebel, and its updates include a new keyed axle that's said to do a better job of keeping both legs pointing in the right direction. They've also re-worked the bolt-on stanchion guards to be much, much beefier. It's air-sprung, and external adjustments are low-speed rebound and low-speed compression, and you can also get a version with a lockout that's on either your handlebar or down at the top of the fork. But don't do either of those. You can pick your axle size, to, so you can run a Boost or un-Boosted wheel.


Taipei Cycle Show
GTMRK's fat bike fork looks quite sturdy and it has flames. You don't need anything else.


If it were my company, I'd tell everyone that GTMRK stands for 'Good Times Mega Rock Killa' suspension company. Alas, it's not my brand but I've been telling everyone that my new inverted fat bike fork is a straight up rock killa regardless. I tried to get some information from the very nice people at GTMRK but had no luck, so I'll just take some guesses instead. There was an air valve at the top, so I bet that it's air-sprung, and there's also a dial that says "Rebound," which means that it likely controls the rebound. And flames because we all know that makes everything better.

Price? From what I gathered, GTMRK is an original equipment-focused company, and not only are they not looking to compete with the fancy pants stuff we're used to riding, their price range is likely far, far lower.


Taipei Cycle Show
Cargo's 200mm-travel 36 DH is coil-sprung and it has a lockout lever because... I honestly don't know.


Isn't 'The Smoother' an awesome name for a downhill fork? Too bad that Cargo, an offshoot of Asian suspension giant Spinner, actually named it the far less interesting 36 DH. Strangely, it's designed for 26'' wheels, which surely means that Pinkbike commenters will be buying Cargo's entire stock. It's also coil-sprung... with a lockout. It has a dial for low-speed rebound, too, and you can adjust the preload. Cargo says that it weighs 7.24lb.

Got a thing for carbon fiber and cross-country-ing? The Axon Werx might be your fork.


Now to some fancy stuff from SR Suntour. The Axon Werx is their top-flight cross-country fork and it sports more carbon fiber than metal. New for 2020 is a one-piece carbon fiber crown and tapered steerer that goes along with the very fancy carbon fiber lowers. The lowers aren't just carbon wrapped around magnesium, but carbon fiber through and through. Travel can be adjusted internally to 100, 110, or 120mm, and you can get it for 27.5'' or 29'' wheels.


Alright, so maybe Fox and RockShox don't have much to worry about right now when it comes to high-end competition, but would you consider giving any of these four forks a go?

 @RoverDover: @RoverDover: I've got a 2006 RST Titan coil. It's super supple, seals are in perfect condition and servicing is easy, requires no proprietary tools and videos are available on YouTube.
In Brazil where low end rockshox and fox are 5k, you get a high end RST for less than 2k. Bear in mind that the minimum wage is less than 1k and living is getting very expensive.
Also I've broken a very especific bolt while servicing first time. Within 2 weeks I've got that bolt for free, from RST.
Also, I like the fork feeling. Certainly will get a new one on my new bike!

 Given that RST have been knocking out forks a lot longer than Fox, they know a thing or two. We were hucking RST Moto 3.5 and 4.5’s off the roofs of bus stops to flat in the 90’s on the front of DMR Trailstars.

  • + 12
 SR Suntour seems stuck between offering competitors Rockshox/Fox, and also trying to provide products for the low end of the market. If they slimmed down their product range a bit and focused on lighter RC2 forks (the 4.1lbs Pike competitor Auron RC2 29 Boost weighs 4.6lbs yet the Lyrik/36 competitor Durolux is the same weight) they'd have some winners. The idea of incorporating crown and lowers is great, but they shouldn't just limit that to an XC fork. They are close, and seem to react quickly to reviews and feedback.

 The Auron I put on my Rootdown is the best fork I have used. I am a big guy and find most forks loose their small bump compliance when I pump them up to the proper sag level for my weight...but the Auron eats those small bumps for breakfast. Is it a fancy fork...not so much, but they work great and I don't have to think about them!

 The Suntours I've ridden have all been great, but it's a shame the dampers aren't serviceable, only the lowers
  • + 1
 @IllestT: depends on the model / price point. The Axon, Aion, Auron, Durolux, and Rux are all fully serviceable cartridges. Also if you have a fork that came with a non-serviceable cartridge some of those could be upgraded to serviceable type (example a XCR and Raidon could upgrade to serviceable type)
  • + 1
 @sprockets: so the answer is to buy a new damper. Errrr right, ok

 @SRSuntour: I have insisted to have Axon Werx 34 Boost RC2 from factory, still on development phase they said. Still waiting for that. By the way, I'm riding Durolux36 R2C2 on my Trance29er and it gives maximum joy on trails. Another expectation is short version 185mm of TriAir shock.
  • + 1
 They sure do! I've ridden them for 5 years now and have had no serious issues and they've worked great. Recently I've run a Fox 34 and a Lyrik while waiting for the new offset Auron or Durolux. I definitely would ride the @SRSuntour before the Fox Elite 34 and put the Lyrik and Durolux in the same category.

 @SRSuntour: Oh yeah, absolutely! The results are right up there but I do know that you didn't just send the UR team a bunch of forks and stickers. It is one of those teams that really cherry picks their components rather than get the complete package from one of those big consortia. And I thought you were going to be with them every step of the way to learn from them and implement their input in your future designs.

So yeah, with all the effort you've put in these last few seasons, I'm just really curious what you came up with.

 The dismissiveness towards Suntour given their high end forks are very good is quite shocking really.

 Was this an intentional pun?
  • + 2
 That's brand dilution for you. Lots of people don't want the same name on their lowers as on a Costco bike, price and quality be damned. I often wonder why they don't have a separate brand for their high-end stuff. They certainly have the money to put some advertising weight behind establishing one. @SRSuntour?
  • + 4
 And the same Costco bike will have Shimano Tourney drive train and nobody cares about them diluting their brand. Both the Shimano and SR Suntour components are the best performance / value ratio. Why the different image on SR Suntour? @Bluefire:

 @BoneDog: RST stuff isnt widely available and I have not heard of the other brand but imagine any suspension service centre could service those forks, forks are super simple internally, parts wise I dont see why they would be difficult to get.

Roger Rinderknecht used the Axon carbon lower version to snag Gold in 4X at Leogang right before he retired from racing. David Graff came in 4th on the same fork. They both had killer seasons using that fork.

A mother of my sons school friend is like that and after divorce she got a shot for a 25yr old stud with romantic eyes.

 I tried the 2018 Auron RC2 PCS this summer on their free Demo To Your Door program (3 weeks of no-charge trial). Impressive fork! Better than my Fox 32 Factory. And very very similar to my now Fox 34 Factory. The only issue is they use grease instead of oil. Easier to maintain, but I was leary on how often this would need to be re-greased before stiction started to show up.

Also, the damper, while impressive and responsive to change, made a "sucking" noise on every rebound. Annoying out on the trail.

If I had to choose a fork, it would be a consideration, but I ended up with a Fox 34 Factory for the same price, so it was a no-brainer. I was definitely raving about the forks while riding them and lots of my buddies got a chance to try it out and were impressed as well.

However, I'd say that SR Suntour service is lacking. During the 3 weeks of the DTYD program, not once did they contact me about how I liked it, or give any tips on set-up, etc. And after I returned it, there was no follow-up on how I liked it, or whether I want to buy one, or any request to post a positive review for them anywhere. And to get my deposit back took about 6 weeks. And I paid the deposit via Paypal, and they sent me the deposit back via a series of two cheques.
  • + 4
 The grease vs oil is to help make dropping the lowers less intimidating to encourage more regular servicing. Having said that, they do approve using 10cc of splash oil in each lower leg for additional lubrication. Regarding the demo program and 'lack of service', it was completely free with shipping both ways included. I'm not sure how much more you could have reasonably asked for at that pricepoint.

 I had one of the original elastomer spring RSTs back in the late 90s. It was OK for the time, if you didn’t mind the fork going rigid once the mercury dropped below 2 degrees...

 I still have my 381R's on my 97 Orange clockwork. Over 20 years old and they still 'work' fine! They are so simple that I used to strip them down and service them when I was about 15... Those were the days...

 My fork before this was a Really Shit Technology fork. I was able to open the pressfit damper, replace the oil, reattach with grub screws and with help from a fitter, extend it from 130-180mm. Had loads of flex fore aft because I did it wrong and needed oil poured into the stanchions every 3 rides or it would not move. The three photos I saw online of snapped ones meant I was too scared to take drops over 4 or 5 feet but, it worked for prototyping over forking my bike and made me appreciate my used fit damper talas 180 36 that every one says is rubbish but feels awesome to me.

 Haha, I had one too. Don't remember the model number, but it was FIVE (5!) inches of elastomer spring travel! Made my Y bike into a trail monster. Well, actually not really. The bike was a POS and so was the suspension. Sold it and bought a hard tail.

 I actually found a fat bike carbon fork on Alibaba a year ago that weighed under 1kg and specced a Fox-like damper, but the manufacturer said they did a production run of 20 forks and lost the mold. They weren't going to look for it because it wasn't profitable enough. There were real customers with real reviews who raved about the product though! It only cost $400.

Thing is, going factory-direct is the only way to get more labor-intensive forks at an economical level (unless you're trust-ing big brands will try to be affordable).

 Depends what you are looking for. Most DJ forks are straight steerers but also 100mm and 26".

Manitou makes the Markhor which is designed to replace entry-level coil forks but it is not overly robust (30mm).

SR Suntour makes a variety of straight steerer forks, including the Raidon (32mm) and I believe they have a trade in program if you had a lower spec SR Suntour fork. I think the Raidon is ~$200 under that program.

And I think there are some left-overs still out there like this Machete www.worldwidecyclery.com/products/manitou-machete-comp-fork-29-120mm-travel-9mm-axle-matte-black?nosto=productpage-nosto-2&refSrc=8121880069
