Technologies:

ISO AIR
ISO Air is Manitou’s isolation air spring technology. It captures some of their MARS Air System’s benchmark plushness and puts it into an efficient cross-country package. They'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)
4-Dimensional Compression Damping

  • Velocity dependant circuit responds to the terrain
  • Pressure dependant circuit flattens the bumps
  • Energy dependant circuit activates on big hits while providing unmatched small bump sensitivity
  • Position dependant circuit creates a bottomless feel

ABSOLUTE+
Velocity/Pressure Dependent System

  • Compatible with MILO remote lever
  • Switches between velocity dependent to pressure-dependent based on adjuster position
  • Eight-position dial for compression rate-adjustment
  • Achieves lockout feel at maximum adjuster position
  • Plushness and control with pedalling efficiency

Rated 5 out of 5 by EXCELENT!!!! Can not Be Better for This price . and looking good. rebound adjust is .. wired. but it's ok 08 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by отличная вилка Обрабатывает все корни/ветки и пр. диаметром от 3см, а всё что мельче и так не заметно. Съедает мелкие ямки глубиной 3-5см. Более крупные препятствия (брёвна 15-20см, бордюры и т.п.) тоже не вызывают проблем. Переезд через брёвна до 15см в диаметре на скорости до 20км/ч вообще происходит без помощи рук - не нужно дергать руль вверх. Если скорость выше, то тогда конечно нужно приложить какие-то усилия в помощь вилке. Вообще очень приятная вилка, очень качественно работает. Регулировки тоже весьма чувствительные, особенно отскок. Блокируется до полной неподвижности, ну может на 2-3 мм прожимается. После нескольких дней бешеных скачек по пыльным лесным тропам и дорогам мелкодисперсная пыль съела всё масло с ног (за эти дни ни разу не мыл и не протирал даже) и вилка начала сопеть. Лечится сменой масла в ногах - 15мл на ногу, вязкость 15. Хорошо использовать в комплекте с защитой ног вилки Lizard Skins. Я такую купил, но сразу одеть забыл, теперь жалею. 21 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bargain ! Bought these at a cheap price and can't believe the quality. My LBS told me my Fox forks were on their way out so I thought I'd grab a pair of these at a ridiculous price. I had some Manitou Blacks on my last bike and they gave me no issues over years of abuse. These are shaping up to be a cracking set of forks. Good adjustability, great feel, and they look the business, although I did take most of the decals off.... As others have mentioned, time will tell, but at this price, I'm not worried. 14 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by What a difference Well I bought these because I was bored of my Recons,,honestly. first, out of the box I was very pleased with the packaging and presentation, they look amazing. 2 or 3 of the decals/stickers were not straight, which did annoy me a little BUT after fitting them and now taken them for some hard hits and a good ride or three They perform incredibly well, smooth as my fox forks, the lockout is very good , the adjustment is very good, Rigidity is easily as good as any other through axle fork, But, yrs there is a but, the through axle takes a little getting used to, when you get used to it it is again very good and quite simple,,,, but if you are impatient and heavy handed you could damage the axle or locating crown in the fork, They have turned my Whyte 901 from a Good ride into a VERY good ride 06 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing value I bought these on offer at about £130. For the money they have completely surpassed my expectations. I really can't fault them. Action is plush from day 1, adjustments are sensitive and noticeable. lightweight. stiff for their intended purpose. they're never going to compare to large stanchion models. rear facing brace is great for uk conditions, helping to keep the gunk from being thrown straight up onto your seals. all in all i couldn't be happier with them. time will tell reliability-wise, but so far so good. 05 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks great j These forks are awesome for the money get a pair when you can 06 June 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by not as good as I first thought Have had these for about 6 months now. At first I thought they were great but without going on too much after time their faults started to become apparent. These forks are far from stiff even though they are tapered steer and thru axle. They flex all over the place. At first I thought I had problems with loose front bearings when I tightened the axle but whatever I did I couldn't seam to stop them rocking. I changed the bearing and the situation got a little better but I still needed quite a bit of force to stop movement. Then I noticed the over tightening had caused failure of a plastic spacer between lever and axle. Well as I had over tightened the axle I thought rather than claiming warrantee I would order a new one myself. 6 weeks to get a replacement not chainreactions fault but through my local bike shop. The first replacement was broken and then I had to wait 2 more weeks for a new one again which they kindly sent me from their service department so I didn't have to wait 6 weeks again. So that's a total of 8 weeks for 1 axle. I then came to service my forks which I do myself with all aspects of my bike. Only to discover that oil had reduced the travel by going past the damper seals and there were already signs of uneven wear on the air piston. After all the aggravation although the forks do function I have got so annoyed that I have just purchased a pair of RS sector gold rl off this very same sight As ChainReaction is best and immediately it is apparent how much stiffer the RockShox are. I fitted the very same front wheel with total and immediate success no rock, no movement, just a firm and strong fitting. Sorry Manitou but you have a long way to go! 03 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great For The Money Great for the money however it is a bit harsh on the rebound but nothing a fork tune won't solve, other than that i'm more than happy with them. grab them while they're cheap as i would be less inclined to purchase at full price. 23 January 2014

Answer: 
As long as you use the correct headset you should be able to run a straight 1.1/8", straight 1.5" or tapered 1.5" steerer in a 1.5" headtube. You will need to contact your local Cannondale dealer to confirm the headset standard on your frame though, as Cannondale had their own 1.5" standard.

Compression issue?

I bought a pair of these but have yet to fit them. Should they be able to compress straight out of the box, before fitting? This is not the case with the pair I received.

Answer: 
The air in the fork is unlikely to be set to the correct pressure for your weight from out of the box.

Try pressing the air release valve to make sure that the fork is holding air already; release about half of the air in the chamber and try to compress. The fork should lower and to a certain degree also rebound.

If this works then you know that the damper and rebound assembly are responding.

Then proceed to set the fork up as normal on the bike, set the correct air pressure for your weight and take for a 'diagnostic' test ride out in the driveway etc. (always take care when setting up any new component).

If the fork is still not responding correctly, send across a few photos or video of the issues the fork is having to the Technical Department below and we will look into the problem should there be one -

Answer: 
There is not an industry standard but the fork offset commonly varies between 41mm to 51mm with a few exceptions.

Most frames are designed with the fork offset taken into account to compliment the bike control.

Offset is the forward displacement of the wheel axle, in relation to the steering axis. This can be measured on your current forks to help determine the ideal offset/rake for your frame (see the image below).

Answer: 
Not being a Carrera dealer I have no way to double check your headtube standard for you, but if it is semi-integrated (44mm internal diameter) you can run these tapered forks in conjunction with an appropriate headset. Your local bike shop will be able to help confirm your headtube standard for you if you are unsure.

Answer: 
These forks run on a 15mm Thru-Axle making the front wheel on your bike incompatible.

The combination of a Tapered Steerer with a 9mm Quick Release dropout is becoming a rarity and unfortunately at present we do not have a fork which would make this combination possible.
