Work Less. Party Harder.

Manitou asked their team of engineers to take some of the work out of the ride and equip the ride for the good times.  They went to work and cut the weight out of the components and delivered plenty of squish for the ride down.  Less weight and a firm platform for the ride up, 180 mm of travel for the ride down.  Introducing the Enduro Collection from Hayes, Manitou & Sunringlé: the Mezzer fork, Mara shock, and Duroc Pro wheels:

Manitou Mezzer

Manitou MezzerManitou created the Mezzer with a singular purpose: Win.

Manitou set aggressive targets in performance, weight and stiffness.  Targets that they knew were going to be very difficult to hit but it was all or nothing.  All aspects from the shaping of the dropout, geometry of the reverse arch, cable routing, damper tolerances, seal material etc. were strategically engineered.  Nothing was assumed.

On the performance side Manitou tapped into their wealth of suspension data, while developing the Mattoc Pro.  To ensure
they achieved the lowest friction possible, they partnered with SKF on proprietary materials for the wiper seals, as well as specifying incredibly tight tolerances on the internal glide rings.  Every single part was engineered to provide maximum benefit.

The result: A world class Enduro fork ready to tackle the most aggressive and technical riding conditions.
