The new Dorado Pro is an engineering masterpiece. 7050 legs, inverted construction, dual-chamber air spring, TPC+ damping (with independent high- and low-speed compression), hydraulic bottom-out and top-out, and Manitou's patented HexLock 20mm thru-axle add up to the most advanced downhill fork ever.
Spring Type: Dual Air
Adjustability: Compression and Rebound Damping
Brake Mount: Disc Only (PM - 203)
Dropout: 20 x 110mm thru - axle
Weight: 6.55 (2974g)
TPC+ (Twin Position Chamber): Providing 4-Dimensional Compression Damping; The velocity dependant circuit responds to the terrain while the Pressure Dependant Circuit flattens the bumps, the Energy Dependant Circuit activates on big hits while providing unmatched small bump sensitivity and the Position Dependant Circuit creates a bottomless feel.
Dorado Air Spring: Features a single air input on top of the fork and a large volume air spring to give a linear spring feel. Combined these give the ultimate sensitivity for any rider in any condition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bikerbob Of you want a bottemless fork this is the one!
I ride the dorado pro for 14 months now and it is super sick. I cant compare it to a rock shox, fox or boss. but i can compare it with a 888. And it feels te same as a 888 only smoother and the travel is bottemless. I never had problems with the fork and one rebuild a year is enough for me. Even for muddy conditions because the seals dont catch much mud! And talking abut flex..... I almost weight 90 kg without gear and i dont feel any flex when im riding.
This fork keeps traction like a beast!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Owned fox 40's and boxers .i prefer the dorado .
They just work , dead easy to set up . Seals permanently lubricated .Brilliantly smooth silent running ,endless travel feel.When you brake hard the wheel does flex slightly to one side . This does not affect direction .I won't be buying any other fork for some time as perfection is hard to beat !

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Great performance but poor reliability
These were the best performing fork DH fork I've used, having owned RS Boxxer Team, World Cups, 888RC2X and ridden other bikes with 2012 Fox 40s. Amazing plush performance of a 888 but the support and feel of a boxxer. Awesome looks and easy to setup. They make 40's feel rubbish.
Unfortunately had two warranty issues. I've never had so many issues with a single fork. Having experienced warranty issues over the years from FOX, RS and Marzocchi, I appreciate any product can fail but in the case of this fork, they spent more time in the workshop than on my bike. Unfortunately the downfall is the lack of comprehensive backup compared to other fork brands.

I,ve used this fork all year and with regular servicing it has only got better ,they are now super smooth and extremely adjustable for any terrain. The big issue i have though is the is literaly no parts back up in the uk this is very disappointing as they are trying to get back into the uk market.would buy fox or bos soley for this reason.
