ARE PART OF THE

2018 FATBIKE SHOOTOUT REVIEW

BLUTO RCT3 120 = 531mm AC HEIGHT = 120mm TRAVEL

WREN ATK 110 = 530mm AC HEIGHT = 110mm TRAVEL

MASTODON PRO EXT 100 = 531mm AC HEIGHT = 100mm TRAVEL

 

These specific forks were selected as they provide IDENTICAL RIDE HEIGHT GEOMETRY (very important) for the test riders, and accommodated all frames and tire/wheel sizes on all test bikes used during this 7 week test.

SUSPENSION FORK SERVICE INFORMATION


MASTODON PRO

STD vs EXT

STD vs EXT fork can be confusing to some.  STD is mainly for FS (full-suspension) bikes, or bikes not requiring wider than 26x4.25" tires, or for frames that cannot accept a taller AC (axle-to-crown) length that 511mm.  Some frames are designed for 100mm travel ONLY.  Upgrading to 120mm travel MAY VOID your warranty (aka = Salsa owners)

EXT forks can accommodate wider tires, up to 4.8in or sometimes 5.0in wide...depends on the brand and rim width.  See charts below for all tires tested and approved by Manitou to fit into their EXT suspension forks.

Note : Selecting an EXT fork will raise the AC by 20mm, over the same suspension travel fork in STD mode.  (see chart below for details)
