The Ribbon SL is a short-travel specific version of the award-winning Ribbon. By limiting the travel to 130mm max we were able to lighten the chassis and reduce the oil volume in the damper. With some additional tweaks, we managed to get the Ribbon SL just under 4 lbs. (3.95 lbs. / 1.78 kg)!
MY20 MRP forks have been updated to deliver better-than-ever performance. These updates include:
ChocoLUXE Internals - ChocoLUXE is a proprietary material utilized in our air-spring sealhead, damper plug, damper seal, damper IFP, and damper support. It’s highly dimensionally stable, meaning that parts made from it are more consistent overall and less susceptible to changing with exposure to temperature swings or humidity. It is also extremely low friction.
Norglide Bushings - Norglide Bushings from Saint Gobain are metal-reinforced, self-lubricating bushings with a layer of a low friction PTFE compound. They’re exceptionally smooth and durable.
In addition to part updates, we’ve also continued to refine our processes. In whole, these part and process changes have resulted in a 37% reduction in friction compared to first-generation Ribbon forks.
Outcast arch design with forward-facing weight reliefs to mitigate mud build up and deliver a distinctive look.
PSST™ pressure-relief valves that quickly and easily bleed off excess pressure in the lowers caused by elevation and temperature changes.
New bladder-free damper utilising a low-pressure IFP.
Independently adjustable positive and negative air-chambers for greater tunability.
