Designed for the riders that dabble in everything, the Mara is ready for anything. An IPA damper features four different positions ranging from an open mode ready to smash rocks to a firm platform mode for those hard climbs and all out double track sprints. Made with 7050 aerospace-grade aluminum the chassis is both lightweight and durable.
Four position Incremental Platform Adjust (IPA) damper offers a wide range of compression adjustment, utilizing two separate shim stacks to maintain an ideal balance of low-speed and high-speed compression damping throughout the adjustment range
The rebound is similarly controlled through two separate circuits. The first of which is a tapered needle that provides the ability to tune the rebound damping to account for rider weight, leverage ratio, and air spring settings

Bought two because we were pleasantly pleased with Manitou forks for both my Son and my Levos. Great compression stroke. I'm 190 and had a hard time bottoming it out on big jumps. But yet still plush. The problem is in the rebound. It's so abrupt and fast that the the clunk vibrates through the whole frame. All the way closed is a little better but makes the shock feel dead. All the other rebound positions other than closed are the same. So it's either waaay to fast or "kinda slow and clunky"
