Manitou McLeod

Although the Manitou McLeod has been superseded by the Manitou Mara Inline we continue to provide support and parts for the McLeod.

The McLeod was a new shock for 2015 based on a completely new concept.  It is simple, lightweight and offers rebound adjustment alongside a compression adjustment that also increases pedalling platform.  The McLeod was available in imperial sizes and metric eyelet sizes.  Trunnion versions are not available at this time.  They feature an air-spring with captive negative air and a damper that can be rebuilt at home.

The McLeod was named after a favourite trail building tool: the McLeod Fire Rake.  It's unique shape is featured on the graphic.

Upgrades:

Make your McLeod even better with these upgrades.


King-Can


The King-Can is a high volume air-can with two internal positions for medium or high volume.  The need for a higher volume can is usually determined by your bike linkage design.  If the correct air pressure and response gives you too much sag then you need more air volume.

Yellow
Bleeder
Piston


The yellow piston has a tiny bypass hole drilled in to reduce the platform feel.  Great for those wanting a less taut feel.  Coming soon.
