Are those mechs hydraulic or cable operated?
The new Flexarados must be the most pointless product in MTB history. I mean, who in their right mind is going to spend that much money on a fork? Think about it like this – if have the sort of job that gives you that kind of disposable income then you can’t possibly ride enough to warrant having them.
Pro-racers will get given them – fantastic, but doesn’t exactly make you any money. Serious amateurs or self financed racers won’t be able to afford them. Maybe a few bike shop employees will be able to afford them at trade.
With the new Boxxer looking like it’s another great fork, you gotta wonder what Manitou hope to gain.
Look out for the trickle down technology into a fork that’s not quite as good but costs 50% lessPosted 8 years agobigsiMember

Following on from the £2300 forks and £800 rear mech seriously how expensive could a custom biuld come too
If these two examples are anything to go by then i think £10000 isnt out the question ,Try explaining that to the wife
GF’s brother has a darkside bike that cost about that and his wife’s cool with it,,, some blokes have all the luck 😉Posted 8 years ago
yup, definatley new technology in there, its not like the first generation USD dorrado’s were carbon fiber with TPC+ dampers, later replaced by the shockingly bad SPV (but in a stiffer chassis)?
You’d think manitou would learn
FFD : basic but reliable, spikes a bit.Posted 8 years ago
TPC : very good
TPC+ : very good with added bottom out resistance
SPV : shockingly bad, and unreliable
SPV+ : shockingly bad, with bottom out adjustment, but still unreliable
SPVevolve : less shockingly bad, but still unreliable
Intrinsic : apparently quite good, but reliability issues and non user servicable.
