One of the latest forks that has been released by Manitou for 2012 is the Minute Expert. Weighting in at 1906g, the Minute Expert features 80mm, 100mm, and 130mm of travel and a 9mm axle. The leg of the fork has a 32mm diameter and is made of 7050 straight wall aluminum.
Highlight of the fork are its MILO-compatible damping, which features in externally adjustable low speed and internally tunable high speed. While its deep bore hollow crown is very lightweight, its strength is not compromised.
Black anodized finished, its crown is a forged I-Beam. Like the other Manitou forks for 2012, the 2012 Manitou Minute Expert Fork has rebound, air, and compression to lockout adjustments. Other features are rubber bumper bottom out, 1.1/8” steel steerer, and post mount brakes.
