Manitou Marvel Pro 9mm QR Tapered 2012 Forks

When you produce a fork and name it the Marvel, it better be nothing short of absolutely marvellous. The Marvel  Pro has some nifty features including TPC Technology Absolute + cartridge compression damping, and adjustable TPC cartridge rebound damping; yet weighs in at 3.4lbs. How is that for marvellous? Install this fork onto your high end XC frame and sit back (lean back) and enjoy how reactive this fork is.

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 5 out of 5 by Excellent Well this is my first air fork and wow what a ride and what a price . The build quality is excellent really nice finish strong and light I've fitted a tapered set of these to a giant talon with a hope bottom cup 44/40 transformed the bike still not a 100% set up but I am going a lot faster round my trails 18 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Muy buena horquilla. Horquilla con un comportamiento muy bueno y un excelente peso (Sobre 1.550g). Funciona como una horquilla de categoría muy superior y traza todos los terrenos perfectamente. Valida tanto para XC como para hacer enduro. 18 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Muy buena horquilla Perfecta relacion calidad-Precio.La recomiendo es una horquilla de grandes prestaciones. 06 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb value Initialy bought to fit to my (now) hack bike, as i intended to fit my regular forks to a new build, it didnt take long to realise just how good these forks were and that i preferred them to my old forks (RockShox Reba RL), hence i ended up transferring these to my new build where they now happily reside. In fairness there is very little to choose between these and the Reba's, they are both very competent forks, but for me the Marvels just edge it for their superior small bump capability and overall quality of finish. Haven't taken them apart yet, so can't comment about the internals, but externally they seem nicely made with a pretty tough (compared to the Reba) paint job and nice quality hardware. I personally find the decals a little garish, but can live with them and they can easily be removed. Longevity and reliability are as yet unknown, as i have not yet subjected them to heavy winter use, and there seem to be very few reviews available, however, initial impressions are good, so i guess time will tell. Spares availability could be an issue, though hopefully CRC will be able to source most things. All things considered, for the current asking price, you wont find anything to touch this and it's also nice to ride something a little different from the norm. 01 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Like it so much this is the 2nd I buy First one was a straight 1 1/8 steerer model: loved it. Light, responsive, tracked the terrain perfectly well and looked amazing. So building a second bike, and saw CRC had the same fork on superspecialoffer. Did not hesitate, for the price it's just a no brainer. The fork crown is a little different for the tapered model, somehow more square, but the overall quality is still there. Selfishly, I'm happy Manitou is not as popular as RS, as we can get these knockdown prices in something that is far superior to any RS I've owned or tried. But seriously, one of the best forks I've used (vs RS Rev and RS Tora, Magura Durin & Menja) 22 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really good forks and a nice price I was rocking a set of 2001 Marzocchi Bomber Z3 coil 100's before getting these forks, so i was well over due a new set of forks. I've got them on a Giant Anthem, they ride really well with it. The are very light weight compared to what I'm used to. I was astonished at the quality of the dials and adjustment knobs. The lock out is very handy for when going up hills and I've noticed that when I've got the adjustment at one click the fork stiffens up when I'm pushing out the saddle. I use them for a commute and regular trail riding and they seem to take everything in their stride. They are stiff and instill me with plenty of confidence. Haven't found a fault having had them for a few months now. 14 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome fitted these to my Giant Trance x4, great handling bike, but with these forks, what a difference, Awesome, can't believe how good they are. And at this price, a steal. I love them. 06 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Manitou Are Back. Despite past problems, Manitou are back. Got these to put on my Kona hardtail and the first thing you will notice about this fork when you take it out of the box is the weight, or lack of it. At 3.3lbs they are light weight and super super stiff. Rode this fork numerous times on a mates bike before purchasing myself. The air system is smooth and progressive. With rebound adjustment and the technology Manitou have put into their forks they are a far better option than many similar on the market. Super stiff and lightweight up front you will feel like you are riding a new bike with this fork on. Would definitely put this on a par with a Reba or similar and at CRC price you'd be mad not to take advantage. Will update this review in a months time. 10 October 2013

Correct size?

Hi,

I just pulled my 2004 Specialized Fsr comp xc, out of storage. The front suspension is too soft, will this fork fit bike and will it have complete and easy control to turn on and off suspension? Thanks

Answer: 
These forks will not be suitable for your bike. They have the newer tapered steerer tube while your bike uses the 1.1/8th steerer.

The model of fork you need is shown below, this has a good amount of adjustment and can be easily locked out with a quick lever turn on the top of the fork.

Answers

Answer: 
The 'Manitou Marvel Pro Forks - QR - 9mm - Tapered 2012' would come in either 100mm or 120mm Travel versions but in relation to compatibility with your 'Scott Genius Frame', you will need to check the Steer Tube size required as the 'Manitou Marvel Pro Forks' selected would use a 1.5” Tapered Steer tube.

Can this fork be adapted to fit my 2010 Corratec X-vert SO1 frame? It is currently fitted with a rigid carbon fork, 1 1/8'' steerer and semi integrated headset (purchased from you, delivered to me in NZ, excellent service!) If possible to adapt, what would I need to get, along with the fork, to make it work?

With so many high end tracks on my doorstep in New Zealand, I feel I need the benefit of front suspension to attack them safely at speed.
