A great fork communicates everything that’s happening between your tyre and the trail, without jarring loose any expensive dental work. In the past, though, you had to accept a weight penalty in order to gain rock-solid steering. The Minute is here to change all that with its ultra-stiff 32mm stanchions, MARS Air spring, and available Hex Lock thru-axle. Forget about noodly XC forks and heavy trail forks. It’s time for a Minute.

MARS Air: is a hybrid spring consisting of a small coil spring and an air chamber. The two springs work in series, minimizing sticktion and providing smooth, bottomless travel. The result is a fork with the suppleness of a coil spring and the light weight and adjustability of an air spring.
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 out of 5 by Anonymous Nice feel. Plush, light and very tunable.
Bought this to up the ante on my mid travel trail bike, replacing a cheap 130mm bomber. It's smooth, light and feels very, very plush. I've read people complaining about stiffness but honestly for a light trail fork with 32mm stanchions it's pretty stiff. The adjustment controls "work", as in they provide a very nice, usable range of options unlike other forks I've tried. Also the shim stack in the damper can aparently be tuned quite a bit, transforming the fork even further, although I haven't gone into that yet. Over all a great fork for the cash.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous The real weight
It's quite disappointing, but the real weight of the 140mm travel fork is 1940g. Chain version: 1562g. Official: 1657g. I think that 300-400g difference is quite a big lie and can be treated as an intentional attempt to mislead the buyer. I hope this helps.
If I knew the real value, I guess I would choose something else. The idea was to buy a lightweight xc-trail alternative to my talas 36, which would stay for hard mountain usage. But I only saved 400g, expected ~700g.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous good fork
i have had the fork for around 6 months now, what i can say is it is a really light trail fork which can handle most things on the trail, the air fork is smooth over small bumps but down a rock garden it starts to ramp up, the fork is solid no flex at all, the only bad point is the axle is a pain to tighten take out and put back in, i havethe 140mm fork and its brill!
