AM / Enduro Forks
120 - 170mm
Discerning riders have long sworn by the performance, durability, and consistency of coil suspension.
While the industry moved away from coil springs in favour of air for its light weight and simple, broad tunability, these coil aficionados dreamt of a fork that combined coil’s advantages with the latest in chassis and damper technology. MRP delivers just that with the new Ribbon Coil.
The Ribbon Coil gives you the spring tunability and stroke control previously found only with air, while giving you the supple linear spring curve, lower friction, longer service life, and consistent feel that you get with a coil spring.
This, in a package with a negligible or even nonexistent weight penalty over air forks in its class.
Every Ribbon Coil ships with three standard spring rates (soft, medium, and firm) and two additional springs (extrasoft and extra-firm) are available separately. The full range of springs covers riders from 125-250 lbs. Fine-tuning of spring rate comes courtesy of an external preload adjustment.
Included with the Ribbon Coil is MRPs acclaimed Ramp Control system; a speed-sensitive ending-stroke adjustment that allows you quickly and easily isolate and tune your preferred amount of bottom-out support on-thefly.
MRP's award-winning all-mountain and enduro forks feature stout 35mm chassis, twin-tube dampers, and either the highly-adjustable FulFill air-spring or our high-performance coil-spring system.
Pinkbike's 2017 Suspension Product of the Year, the Ribbon (air), is the king of the 35mm class. The Ribbon Coil substitutes a tunable coil spring in place of the air-spring, but otherwise has all the same features at modest weight increase.

Coil aficionados have dreamt of a fork that combines these advantages with the latest in chassis and damper technology. MRP has delivered with the Ribbon Coil.
Just 203 g (0.45 lbs.) heavier than the air-sprung Ribbon, the Ribbon Coils 4.6 lb. weight bests many of its air-sprung competitors and beats aftermarket coil-converted forks. Its an easily justifiable compromise for hard-charging trail riders and park rats in exchange for consistent and impeccable performance, day-in and day-out.

Like all MRP forks, the Ribbon Coil is precisely assembled in MRPs Grand Junction, Colorado factory.
All forks undergo a rigorous QC process, that includes individual dyno testing, before arriving in the hands of end users. Like its air-sprung sibling, the Ribbon Coil is offered in two chassis sizes (27.5 or 27.5+/29) with ten standard decal colour options, and with either QR-style or bolt-on 15x110 axles. With the addition of either coil or air-spring, and the above options, MRP suspension is truly the suspension of choice for those that demand the best.
