The suspension connoisseur's choice.

Offering more adjustability than virtually any fork on the market, the performance-obsessed engineers at MRP created the Ribbon 160 Boost 27.5in Fork to withstand the serious demands of all-mountain thrashing while offering up a customizable feel to your specific riding needs and local trails at hand. Not only did MRP succeed in this ambitious endeavor of creating a fine-tunable fork for discerning riders and suspension geeks, but they did so while keeping the Ribbon competitively lightweight in its all-mountain category at a mere 4.15 pounds. This particular Ribbon fork boasts 160-millimeters of terrain-smoothing travel with BOOST axle spacing for precise tracking of the front wheel over rowdy sections of trail.

Seeing that MRP's local trails in Grand Junction, Colorado are some of the most challenging and diverse in the country, it makes perfect sense that they'd create the Ribbon with 35-millimeter stanchions for reduced torsional flex when you're rallying it over chunky rocks, steep descents, and harsh drops. In fact, the Ribbon is named after an infamous trail in the Grand Junction area, touted as one of the most "unique slab rock trails that's as fast as your bike will permit." This brutal testing ground sets the bar high for the Ribbon's performance, meaning it had to excel on the steepest descents at high speeds, but also pick lines across technical sections with methodical precision.

The Ribbon's new FulFill air spring gives you the fine-tunable feel of independently adjustable positive and negative air chambers, which is ideal for the rider customizing their fork's feel to near-obsessive realms. Whether you need it to be smooth and supple off-the-top or incredibly supportive, the Ribbon is your fork of choice with its independent air chambers. MRP integrated Ramp Control technology into the Ribbon as well, which means you won't have to add or remove volume spacers ever again. This technology gives you 16 position adjustments with the flick of a knob, tuning your fork's behavior to handle harsh hits where you'd normally bottom out. Another cool feature, MRP integrated PSST valves to bleed out the lowers when drastic changes in elevation and temperature mess with the operation and feel of your fork.

Perhaps its most notable design feature, the Ribbon features a "twin-tube" style damper that's seldom seen on forks, due to engineering complexity. MRP calls this the EssenTTial damper, which uses a low-pressure internal floating piston (IFP) instead of a bladder to eliminate stiction while improving reliability and consistency over the open bath and mono-tube dampers found on the competition. When it's time to service the fork, the cassette-tool interface along the top cap and external bleed ports make it a relatively quick and easy endeavor.
