with Manitou Forks?
Cannondale downhill team bikes where at Sea Otter
Classic mounting Manitou Dorado 180DH forks. Cannondale was on of the few
companies in the world that developed their own forks for both Cross Country
as for Downhill bicycles.|
Cannondale has already officialy announced that their downhill team will
use these Manitou forks during all the current season. At present, 45 units
of the Dorado model have been built, and they are all being used by pro
riders, but Answer’s plan is to begin the sell of this product by August.
The production forks will be nearly identical to race versions.
The Dorado 180DH is an MRD (Manitou Racing Development) project. All Dorado
180DH forks are hand built.
The Dorado 180DH has 180 millimeters of travel, uses 30-millimeter alloy
stanchion tubes, carbon fiber sliders, a 3-bolt oversize lower crown, and
an innovative, proprietary axle Hex-Lok design. The MRD handlebar clamp
will be included with the fork.
The Dorado 180DH features TPC Plus damping, full independent compression
and rebound damping, with a special displacement compensator system which
pressurizes the damper (because the system is now upside down).
