Ready for the rigours of enduro racing and all mountain riding terrain conditions, this versatile mountain bike (MTB) fork is kitted out with 35mm stanchions, combined with MRP's renowned technologies for fantastic front-end suspension performance wherever your next ride takes you. This model is equipped with Boost axle spacing, which gives it additional stiffness and strength as you tackle unpredictable, mixed terrains, while also ensuring smooth, effective and consistent handling as you weave between the trails. MRP Ribbon forks have received updates including the ChocoLUXE internals and Norglide Bushings, providing less stiction and better-than-ever performance.
MRP's goal in designing the Ribbon was seemingly impossible: building on the success of the heralded Stage, create a fork with higher performance, more adjustability, more features, all at a significantly lower weight. Those incredible demands meant that the brand had to reimagine elements like casting design, reconfigure damper architecture, and completely retarget performance goals. The result is not just the best fork they've ever produced, they've classed it as the new industry benchmark.
With other features like the highly tuneable FulFill air-spring, low-pressure IFP damper, PSST pressure relief valves, and Outcast arch design and the acclaimed Ramp Control™ technology, this is the enduro fork to have.
ChocoLUXE Internals: - ChocoLUXE is a proprietary material utilised in the air-spring sealhead, damper plug, damper seal, damper IFP, and damper support. It’s highly dimensionally stable, meaning that parts made from it are more consistent overall and less susceptible to changing with exposure to temperature swings or humidity. It is also extremely low friction.
Norglide Bushings: - Norglide Bushings from Saint Gobain are metal-reinforced, self-lubricating bushings with a layer of a low friction PTFE compound. They’re exceptionally smooth and durable.
Reduced Friction: In addition to part updates, MRP also continued to refine its processes. In whole, these part and process changes have resulted in a 37% reduction in friction compared to first-generation Ribbon forks.
FullFill™ air-spring system with independently adjustable positive and negative air-chambers for greater tunability.
New EssenTTial™ twin-tube, bladder-free damper utilizing a low-pressure IFP.
Outcast™ arch design with forward-facing weight reliefs to mitigate mud build up.
PSST™ pressure-relief valves that quickly and easily bleed off excess pressure in the lowers caused by elevation and temperature changes.
"Boost" spacing and 35mm stanchions.
