The 2017 MRP Ribbon fork has a unique design that was inspired by riders who often find themselves in wet conditions where mud clogs the back of a normal fork arch. Aside from its unique look, the Ribbon has a new air spring which allows you to independently adjust the positive and negative spring pressures to dial in the feel. The damper side uses an IFP instead of a bladder in search of improved long-term performance. There's also a new rebound shim configuration. The fork has air bleeders on the back to relieve pressure in the lowers due to temperature changes or prolonged use, and has low-friction dust wipers said to reduce friction by 28% over previous versions. The fork is made for all-mountain/enduro use, has an 8-position compression adjustment, 16-position ramp control, and rebound adjustment. It will come in 27.5+/29 with 120-150mm travel that will fit up to 27.5 x 3-inch tires or a 27.5 version with 140-170mm travel for tires up to 2.6-inches wide. It's equipped with 35mm stanchions and weighs 1,860g.
