Manitou Marvel Pro QR – 9mm – 1 1/8”Forks

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 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent forks, so much better than the stock supplied with my bike. Installing these forks has made a world of difference to my ride. It is like riding a completely new bike, I can not recommend this product more. The increase in responsiveness is incredible and I can feel every little change in the terrain as I ride. They are perfect, I could not be happier with these forks. And the price was an extra bonus too! 13 January 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Big bounce for little bucks. Needed to upgrade my 2003 kona cindercone. Swapped out the old 100mm spring fork for the 120mm version of these. Vola! one demon xc and full on head case down hill trail muncher has been born. Easy to setup and vast amounts of adjustment. Brilliant value for money. I used to hanker for a new bike. With these and an octane one headset, i can honestly say i'm happy with my giant killer now. The guys at crc were a lot of help too. 17 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it - light, sensitive, stiff, excellent xc fork Have ridden it twice since I bought it, but great feeling so far. The fork is beautifully crafted, looks sturdy, the dials feel solid and it's pretty light too. Riding impressions so far - stiff (other fork is a Reve 140mm with 9mm axle, so kind of normal it feels stiffer), very good small bump sensitivity, has not bottomed out (100mm travel) in big bumps (nothing excessive though), tracks the terrain amazingly well - set up with a 26er hardtail, and while the back end was all round, front end was just sticking to the ground and giving great tracking confidence. I cannot speak about durability issues, seems Manitou wasn't doing so well in recent years, however, my RS is not bombproof either, but really, for 300 euros, it's a steal. If it came in 140mm I'd get one for my FS without doubt. 07 November 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Отличная вилка Отличная вилка для тяжелых райдеров (брал 120 мм). У меня масса 98кг, накачал до указанного в инструкции давления под свой вес. На мелких неровностях, типа грунтовой дороги, вилка практически не работает обеспечивая хороший накат, на камнях корнях, ухабах работает на отлично в паре с регулировкой отскока, регулировка которого очень заметно влияет на работу вилку. Очень подходит для КК Однако при сильном педалировании вилка все же продавливается, но есть блокировка. При своей массе еще ни разу вилку на отбой не сжимал, хотя езжу достаточно агресивно. При этом вилка весит, порядка 1700 гр что легче тойже витой пружины 80мм сантора. Про отрицательные моменты пока ничего не скажу, за 500 км пробега не обноружил. После зимы посмотрю. Рекомендую. 01 August 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing functionality at totally bargain price Fitted gloss white 120mm Marvel Pro forks to my Kinesis Maxlight XC2 (white ofc) replacing -07 Manitou Black forks. I used a Topeak pocket pump to inflate the forks to manufacturers suggested pressure. It may be a good idea to use manufacturers own pump but that item wasn't available when I placed the order. These forks work with very narrow range of pressure so to be able to fine tune it accurately the gauge has to be calibrated for the lower pressure range. First impression suggest that these are light weight yet sturdy forks. None of any flexy feeling with 180mm front disc. Clicking adjustements for the damping and rebound action work well and effectively. No need to use them flat out. I made two rides around singletrack/all mountain course trying out different settings and finally got it spot on. This product really enables faster ride on the rough terrain because the damping works like a dream ! Front wheel is very stable in wet roots and and smaller rocks. I can keep pedalling and just point the wheel where I want to go. Super grip on the tire. It is unbelievable how soon I got used to this product and get noticeably faster tracktime. Then I hit some more technical stuff with steep rocky hills, smooth trialsy mountain stuff and I could ride along some lines that I never could imagine would be possible without a proper trials bike. No spongy jumpstick feeling here, just accurate control and predictable behaviour all the time. GREAT FEELING ! The Lock Out works neatly and I soon started to use it on every uphill while on tarmac riding to forest. I wasn't thinking that there will be much use for this feature because this is the first time I have the oppoturnity. But it works well and is super easy to activate from the crown while riding. No need for a cable operated lock out in my opinion 'cos you can just flick the lock out on with your index finger with no effort. It makes me very feel confident about riding capabilities and I'm now enjoying my ride like I have a completely new bike. I weight 64kg and alltough Manitou states that these forks are intented for XC/Expedition use I can say that at least for a lighter rider this is a killer choice for rougher stuff as well ! Pros +Amazing quality and finish +Rebound adjustement is very effective +Smooth progression during the travel +Sensitivity/ISO air spring response +Lock out is easy to use +Light weight +Effortless to set up +- It's still easy to notice that these are air forks for the faint amount of stickyness at the very begining of the travel with higher preload pressure. It may be just something that needs some time to bed in properly. Personally I felt that this kind of tight response actually made me faster while ascending track with loadsa tight corners and roots/small rocks. On bigger stuff the fork just evens out all the obstacles and that stickyness is not noticably any more. This may be due to personal refenrence because I'm just used to spring coil responsiviness. Cons -No manual suplied (alltough on the internet there is everything that you would want to know avaible including finetuning the damping/shim stacks etc) -Sensitive spring preload adjustment with a conventional pump / gauge range -Occasional over engouragement for riding the bigger stuff Verdict: For the price these are nobrainer forks for many purposes especially for a hardtail xc/allround frame. 120mm travel did not make Kinesis truckish at all but still calmed it down so it doesn't beheave nervously at lower speeds let alone going downhill where I can just let the bike roll with out constantly using brakes to tame it down. They work just like you'd expect and are super stable and light weight. Expectional quality and pro feel. Manitou seems to be the most underrated suspension manufacturer there is ! 17 June 2013

Answer: 
The main difference is that the R7 Pro forks run 30mm stanchions, while these Marvel forks run 32mm stanchions. As a result, the Marvel will be a little heavier, and a little stiffer. The Marvel fork run the ISO Air chamber for small bump compliance, while the R7 us the TS Air chamber for a more general rider weight setting.
