Manitou Marvel Expert Forks - QR - 15mm - Tapered 2012

When you name a fork Marvel, the fork better be marvellous. Manitou did not disappoint with this fork. At 120mm of travel, this fork is a fierce fighter in the XC/ light trail category. Put this on your high end XC frame and be amazed at the difference it will make. Manitou did not just want to make an excellent fork; they wanted to make a statement to the rest of the industry. Not only are bike frames changing but components including forks are too. You’ll notice some striking architectural features on the Marvel including the crown design.

Technologies:

  • ISO AIR: ISO Air is Manitou’s isolation air spring technology. It captures some of our MARS Air System’s benchmark plushness and puts it into an efficient cross-country package. We’ve essentially created a compliant link between the unsprung lower half of the fork and the air piston. The result is a system that isolates the rider from harshness on small, square-edged bumps produced by seal drag, or stiction, common in traditional air systems; the science of smooth!

  • 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.
  • ABSOLUTE+: Velocity/Pressure Dependent System; Compatible with MILO remote lever, Absolute+ Switches between velocity dependent to pressure-dependent based on adjuster position. With an eight-position dial for compression rate-adjustment, it achieves lockout feel at maximum adjuster position, and plushness and control with pedalling efficiency.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent value. Surprisingly good. I bought this fork for a build based on a 2012 Camber Frameset. Initially, I had doubts about how well this fork would perform, but after the first couple of rides, there's not doubts at all. Would be nice to have more range on the rebound adjustment, as I'm running one click from slowest setting. Feels rigid and the ABS+ damping is really good. Lock does exactly what it says and there's a really useful range of adjustment through to fully open. QR system does take a little getting used to...but works very well. 06 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Хорошая вилка Вилка работает отлично при соответствующей настройке. Отрабатывает даже мелкие неровности. Конусный шток (нужно обратить внимание на диаметр своей рулевой), 15 миллиметровая ось-эксцентрик, 32 ноги - всё это добавляет торсионной жёсткости. При всём при этом вес ненамного больше аналогов 2014 года. Перед установкой на байк вилку нужно обязательно подвергнуть техническому обслуживанию, так как смазка практически отсутствует. В рулевой стакан диаметром 44 мм можно установить с помощью рулевой Nukeproof Warhead 44IETS Headset 02 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rides great Looks awesome. Rides awesome. Nice handling. My previous fork was a manitou black 80-100mm travel. This 120mm gives me a little extra room to move. I set it up with more sag. Rebound and compression adjustment make a big difference and give a big range of handling, so you can set it up exactly how you like. Top quality at a great price. Only thing I don't like is the gloss finish. It shows up every bit of dust and dirt. 28 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great value fork Had this fork on my Cotic Soul for a couple of months and very pleased with it so far. It's well made with the compression and rebound dials having nice solid clicks when they are turned, plus they actually do noticeably work when you alter them. The QR15 uses a bayonet type fitting which can be a little tricky to line up when inserting the wheel; it's not really an issue for trail riding but if you were racing XC it might cost you valuable seconds. It does mean though that you don't have to crank up the lever like on Rockshox forks, it's simply a twist and light close of the lever and it's locked, which is good. The fork is not that light, it's a little clunky sounding on small bumps and I think the axle-crown height is a little higher than expected (120mm of travel but 130mm of stanchion showing), but for the price it's a very good fork 16 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Value for money These forks are great they handle well and are easy to adjust, if i have any gripes I'd say maybe a little heavy the rebound is a little to fast and has minimal adjustment and I'm not a real fan of the quick release, the axel has to be facing up to get it in you then have to turn it 90 degrees screw a locking nut in then fold the quick release tab over, its a time wasting pain in the butt. 13 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by excelente muy contento con la horquilla,de facil reglaje, fuerte y rigida con el arco posterior, sin holguras, igual o MEJOR que FOX.. 09 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Самая плюшевая вилка В крайне правом положении переключателя чувствительности отрабатывает абсолютно ВСЕ, вплоть до монетки лежащей на земле. При регулировке отскока вообще перестает чувствоваться даже минимальная вибрация. И все это зимой при температуре -16 цельсия. Конусный шток добавляет торсионной жесткости, 15мм шпилька- идеальное решение в отличие от тонкой 9мм или геморно отвинчиваемой 20мм. Просто клад за копейки. Но этот сыр надо еще извлечь из мышеловки ... Если бы я сразу как получил попытался ее обкатать убил бы покрытие башинга в левой штанине и на левой ноге. В ней стояло только три четверти сальника причем сухого и масло отсутствовало как факт. Резьба на винте держащем шток в этой же несчастной ноге была либо изначально сорвана либо сорвалась при попытке его отвинтить с минимальным усилием. Масло в воздушной камере тоже отсутствовало. В правой ноге было налито вилочное масло что есть бред ибо оно не предназначено для смазки, его задача в демпфере булькать и не пузыриться. Ах да, еще конусная вилка не хочет просто так лезть в стандартную раму с 44м стаканом. Что касается конуса то Nukeproof Warhead 44IETS Headset или другая колонка с нижней чашкой EC44 (или просто чашка) Что касается всего остального то конечно мастерская (мне все техобслуживание с заливкой масла и заменой запчастей обошлось в 5% от стоимости вилки) В любом случае вилку после покупки рекомендуется перебрать, ну эту перебирать чуть побольше пришлось)) Так что в итоге великолепная плюшевая вилка по совершенно смешной цене. P.S. Руки перестали болеть даже при быстрой езде по криво уложенной тротуарной плитке. 07 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A solid fork at XC race weight This fork weights the same as some so called XC race forks, but is much more solid. The fork makes the bike look more aggressive and the quality is very visible when taken out of the box. A very good buy! 03 November 2013

Answer: 
Привет, друг. Всё возможно! Всё зависит от диаметра твоей рулевой трубы в месте установки чашек подшипников. Если она 44 мм, то установить вилку с конусным штоком (1.1/8" - 1.5" Tapered) тебе поможет специальная рулевая, например Nukeproof Warhead 44IETS Headset.

Answer: 
Your Specialized frame is only compatible with a standard straight 1.1/8th steerer tube. These forks are a tapered steerer so will not be compatible.

A 100mm travel fork with quick release (9mm QR) and 1.1/8th steerer would be ideal for you.

Answer: 
Yes, the 'Ghost SE 9000 Hardtail Frame 2012' would have a Tapered Head Tube so the 'Manitou Marvel Expert Forks - QR15mm - Tapered 2012' would be fine.

The 'Ghost SE 9000 Hardtail Frame 2012' could accept up to a 120mm of travel so, you would also be able to use this version of the 'Manitou Marvel Expert Forks' if you wanted to have a bit of extra travel on the frame.

Answer: 
I believe the Raid 200 frame runs a 44mm semi-integrated headtube so you should be fine to run tapered forks as long as you are sure to fit a tapered headset.

Answers

Answer: 
Looks to be a conventional headset (34mm internal diameter headtube - bearings rest in cups above and below the headtube), so it is not compatible with the tapered steerer standard. You will need to opt for a fork with a straight 1.1/8" steerer tube.
