  1. Shockcraft Pick & Mix Self Tune kit for Manitou McLeod and Mara Inline rear shocks
    Enables technically minded riders and bike shops to install Shockcraft engineered and tested tunes in the Manitou Mcleod and Mara Inline shocks with only normal service tools

    Riding a Manitou Mara Inline or McLeod with McMara Pick & Mix Self Tune you'll notice huge changes in feel, speed and confidence. You'll get the right combination of playfulness, poppiness and plantedness, with the shock stable, supportive and sucking up bumps. Our tunes cover the range from lightweight cruisers and low leverage bikes to heavy hitting bruisers and high leverage bikes; from kids to Dadzilla's.  Each kit delivers a target tune for compression and rebound, but also optional softer/firmer compression tunes and stickier/poppier rebound tunes to Pick & Mix if you're feeling curious.  There is a further choice of Trail, Open or XC platform adjustment with every kit.

    McMara Self Tune Kits include a specific damper piston, shims & paper drawings with a rack of tunes
    Installation instructions are provided in PDF form here
    Your tune grade is determined by your weight, suspension leverage, bike geometry and riding style
    The Pick & Mix Calculator takes these inputs and determines which grade tune fits you best
    The kit allows you to install this tune or to choose firmer, softer, poppier or stickier tunes versions to suit your riding style and preferences

    We have included a list of recommended and optional items for working on your McLeod or Mara Inline shocks

    King Cans
    KIng cans are recommended for shocks with a stroke of over 50 mm, especially on progressive suspension linkages.  More linear bikes with shocks of more than 50 mm stroke may be okay without a king can.  Our Mara Inline king cans are listed here, McLeod king cans are listed here.
