The Ebonite-Bandit is the next chapter of Blackline Rightsideup forks at Intend. Increasing the stiffness of the complete fork/frame/handlebar system, especially hard and heavy riders benefit from this architecture.
The Bandit construction improves not only the disc brake side with more strength and stiffness, but also gives more space for any improvements of the air spring system. Larger negative chamber? No problem, Lager positive chamber? yes, second positive chamber? yes.
Yes, the second positive chamber in the Ebonite fork is pressurized with higher pressure then the first air chamber. The lower initial pressure improves the small bump sensitivity, while it ramps up faster until it reaches the pressure of the second chamber, then they act like one big chamber with less progression.
And the big benefit of the Ebonite-bandit is, that you can set the limit of movement of the separating piston and tune the progression in the last 20mm of the stroke to your personal needs. Sounds good ? Yes - is good!
