EXT Introduces ERA V2

Just over a year ago we officially launched our first MTB suspension fork that was an immediate great success. Despite our long experience in the motorsport world, Era has been our first front suspension dedicated to the MTB world and the fact that it got so much appreciation confirmed to us that the path we took designing it was the right one.

With features like HS3 hybrid coil system, dedicated crown design and countless other solutions to reduce friction and improve performance, since the beginning Era wanted to be a no compromises, high performing fork that aimed to set itself apart from the other options in the market and respond to some of the needs of the most demanding riders.

With Era V2 we want to continue on this path, introducing new and updated features that will improve the previous production increasing safety, performance and reliability.

NEW FEATURES

Some of the new Era V2 features are:

NEW MAGNESIUM LOWERS

RLP SYSTEM

The new “RLP” radial lubrification pocket system consists in a new dedicated DU design with small pockets in the inner part of the bushing that traps some of the oil flowing and keeps the stanchion lubricated even under heavy load friction. There are also 3 specifically designed backup channels that improves pump lubrication effect.

FLOATING AXLE DESIGN

Decoupling between hub dimension and fork alignment for improved fork sensitivity.

The HS3 system end-stroke device has been revised and improved to increase reliability and smoothness even in harsh riding conditions.

++ CHAMBER TOP UP BUMPER

Added a top up bump rubber and a titanium plate to the ++ chamber to reduce noise.

From now on the production of Era will be discontinued as Era V2 is in fact an upgraded and revised design of the same fork. All Era V2 are carrying on parts that can fit on the previous version and vice versa. Support for the previous Era production will always be granted and we have plans to release a special upgrade pack that can be purchased in order to upgrade your “Era V1” fork to an Era V2.
