The Machete is a large bladed knife, traditionally used to slice through heavy brush in remote areas while exploring.  It is also an ideal trail building tool when clearing overhanging vines and small tree branches.

The Manitou Machete was purpose-built for slicing trails. 110 spacing, 80-140 mm travel range, 32 mm stanchions and packed with Manitou’s renowned TPC and ABS+ rebound and compression technologies - the Machete is a lightweight trail fork with a predictable ride and intuitive adjustments.

Please note the Machete requires a 110 mm spacing hub.
