Technologies:

  • Motion Control™: Imagine riding on the moon. Rolling hills, crushed rock blasted out of craters… craters. There’s no gravity so you wouldn’t even need a chairlift. Unfortunately you can’t ride on the moon. There’s lots of gnarly terrain on earth. But, earth has gravity so you’ll need suspension that climbs as well as it descends. With the Motion Control damper technology you’ll do just that. 
  • Power Bulge: When you need your forearms to be stronger for more control, you bulk them up in the gym. When you need more durability from your fork, bulk them up with our Power Bulge. Other companies just increase the stanchion size adding extra weight. Power Bulge simply reinforces the lower leg to allow for an oversized bushing, increasing stiffness and maximizing your ride.
  • Solo Air: Solo Air is like a Buddhist monk. Its enlightened design lets you add air to your forks through a single Schrader valve, filling both the positive and negative air spring chambers simultaneously. So they’re always in perfect equilibrium, like Yin and Yang. Giving you a plush, predictable ride you can set up in seconds, with the lightest weight air spring on the market.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Price for an Awesome fork I usually ride downhill, but picked this up for my XC bike. It came in an hour ago, I slapped it on and went for a ride, it feels great! Super soft solid and good feeling in the turns. It is an awesome riding fork, great upgrade from my 80mm suntour and does not throw of the geo at all. If you need a new 100mm for cheap, snag one of these! 09 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Хорошая вилочка Хорошая бюджетная вилка, вполне достаточна для любителей. Единственный недостаток вилки - попадает вода во внутреннюю камеру штанов, из-за чего,к примеру, переставала амортизировать в зимних условиях. После переборки значительно лучше стала обрабатывать неровности 16 April 2014

Compatible?

Is this fork compatible with my 2013 Specialized Rockhopper Comp? Will I need to buy a pump or any other accessories?

Answers

Answer: 
This fork runs a tapered steerer, so is compatible with any frame running a tapered, oversize or semi-integrated (44mm) headtube in conjunction with the appropriate headset. I believe the Rockhopper runs a tapered headtube, but your local Specialized dealer will be able to confirm this for you.
The forks are not supplied with a pump or seal kit as standard; these would need to be purchased separately as needed.

Answer: 
This may be possible depending on the headset standard that your bike has.

If you can supply the Headtube Internal Diameter (Top and Bottom) to our Technical Department below; we can advise on whether or not this fork can be used.

Axle--15QR through

Good afternoon,

I have a Giant XTC 29er that I was hoping to put these on.

The hubs are "Giant tracker 15QR" (through axle). Is there any easy way to make it compatible with these forks?

Regards,

It's 9mm QR. Not 9mm thru axle.

Just making sure that it is 9mm quick release, where axle is 9mm and 5mm quick release shaft runs trough it?

Not that modern 9mm thru axle.

This fork is available in both aluminium and steel steerer options, but it doesn't seem to state which version this is in the right up. Please can you let me know which it is.

Answer: 
These forks will suit any frame that runs a tapered headtube, or 44mm headtube or larger. Not being a Specialized dealer I can't confirm your headtube standard for you but your local dealer will be able to help you identify the standard you have and whether or not you will need a new headset as well.
