Step up and onto the podium, you’ve just won your first XC race! Not just because you're riding one of the lightest pound for pound XC forks. No, it’s because you’ve trained and you are focused on doing your best. Interesting, we’re doing the same thing with the new RSeven MRD fork and it’s true that like minds well, think alike.
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.
TS Air: Light weight for XC, the easy set up covers all rider weights and features simple user charts on the back of forks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous De todas as suspensões que já utilizei no MTB XC, é com absoluta certeza que a Manitou R7 foi e continua sendo a melhor. Utilizava a MAnitou R7 Pro 2011 e agora adquiri a R7 MRD 2013, top d+.
Of all the suspensions I've ever used in MTB XC, with absolute certainty is that the Manitou R7 was and remains the best. Manitou R7 used the Pro 2011 and now got the R7 MRD 2013, top d +. I will try to take the white version of this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous I am very disapointed that Manitou forks are too under-rated!
This R7 is such a good fork, i really don't know what to write here.
I was riding a Rock Shox Tora 302 for some time, and jumped on my new bike (that had a R7), you could emediateley feel the difference in weight (before you even started, just lift the front end...you'll know what i meant). I was on a gravel/XC like fire road, that what really wavey (like a little precise wave every 50cm...like a human made them) and with the Tora, it jsut jumped like crazy, my hands hurt and my head was ready to fall of cuz of the vibration.
But the moment i went with the R7, maaaaaan i remember that feeling like it was 5min ago... all i can say is, i came!
The R7 went trough the waves like they even weren't there, no head or hand shake what so ever. so light, so perfectly working.
If you gave me a $2000 Fox or Rock Shox, i would probably still go with the R7...
It just sooo fine made. (and the kinky blue steerer isn't half bad too)
The only flaw i found was that it has a tiiiiiny bit of flex (so i don't know how would it react on 100kg riders)
But great for all in all,
when i'll be making a new bike, i will try to take the white version of this one!
