Handles terrain like a goat. Just because you're on a budget doesn't mean you can't ride a suspension fork that gives you excellent, smooth control. The Markhor features our KwikToggle damper with easy on/off lockout. With travel between 100mm and adjustable to 120mm, the Markhor fork smooths out any line the trail puts in front of you.

    Manitou Markhor travel issue

    I bought a bike second hand. The bike came with a Manitou markhor fork from the manufacturer. The previous owner didn't ride the bike offroad, only on the road. He used the bike for less than a year (approximately 7 months). Just for clarification, I did not purchase this fork from this website I am just looking for help. As i said this fork comes standard with this bike. Fast forward a year and i noticed that my travel reduced from 100mm to 70mm. Even with no air the fork still bottoms out after 70mm. Is there anything I can do?


    This has been a great upgrade for my wife’s bike. Easy to install and adjust based on her riding style.

    Light and great for my kid !

    I put the 26" fork for my sons 24" bike. A very light and good looking fork! He use it and likes it a lot.

    He is 9yr and not heavy, but the fork works great even for his low weight and very low air pressure.

    1. I cannot notice any big difference between the extreme settings of rebound. It doesn't seem to matter if it's set to MAX or MIN. Is that due to the low air pressure my son need?
    Hovever, the rebound luckily seems to be on point anyway and work fine. I'm asking of curiosity.

    2. Is the 26" fork factory setting, 100mm travel? (No spacer pre-installed)

    Kept me 'ready for shreddy' on a budget, and a modest upgrade

    On top of providing a modest upgrade for a bike at a very fair price, I think Hayes is doing the MTB community a very big service by providing a component that can be fitted on older generations of bikes, to meet the specifications. That is hard to find right now! As far as the performance of the Markhor Fork, it is definitely a "ground control" oriented suspension, and keeps me attached to my local singletrack terrain pretty well. The hardware for my Shimano M series brake did not match up, so my local bike shop had to dig for the right bolts. Tire clearance is ideal!! They shipped this fork out to me faster than a jack rabbit. Nice!


    Love these forks! Great price & excellent performance. Have thrown everything at them and still good as new! Highly recommend. Have also bought for friends upgrades and they love them just as much.

    Thanks for the great review! #rideon
