Smaller Riders, Bigger Stanchions, Better Performance
The Junit Pro 34mm represents the absolute maximum in terms of performance, tuneability, lightweight construction and reliability, just like the adult versions of the Manitou Pro lineup. It is a veritable professional level fork with the absolute only differences coming in the size and the tune specific to younger riders and their unique needs. Everything else is built up to the standards of the most demanding athlete competing at the sport’s highest level yet tailored to give specific benefits to the next generation of mountain biking stardom. At 1750 grams the Pro version is extremely light, especially considering the 100-160mm travel range it covers. The Dorado Air spring with IRT derives from the same technology used in our top professional adult forks. The VTT 6 position compression damping and half cartridge adjustable TPC rebound dampening make for a ride that most adults would envy. With adjustable air, IRT, rebound and 6-position compression even smaller riders can enjoy the uncommon benefit of a suspension performance tailored to their specific and individual needs.
Build it and they will come. The 32mm JUNIT fork opened up suspension performance for kids that has never been seen before. The move to 34mm chassis in 24” and 26” wheel sizes increases stiffness for bigger kids to go even bigger! 7000 series tapered legs for a light weight stiff chassis.
DoradoTM air allows for internal travel adjustments with no added parts. New travel spacers account for negative air volume change, so the 100mm fork has the same initial stroke feel as the 160mm.
The Dorado Air spring systems contain a unique balancing valve that equalizes the positive and negative air chambers during the air fill process. This gives the spring rate a consistent feel without any flat or dead spots in the stroke, along with giving riders of different weights the same initial stroke feel. Dorado Air is our lightest weight air spring technology.
Infinite Rate TuneTM (IRT) allows for advanced spring tuning by independently adjusting air pressures in the beginning and end stroke. IRT technology creates a secondary positive air spring that effects only the middle to end stroke of the fork. This allows the main air spring to be set to lower pressures for improved small bump sensitivity while maintaining mid-stroke support and moderate to aggressive end-stroke ramp-up.
VTT-6P is our newest compression damper technology featuring an single external compression adjuster that simultaneously adjusts HS and LS damping characteristics. It features a fixed shim stack and a secondary shim stack that is preloaded by the external adjuster. The resulting wide tuning range combines the benefits of a Low-speed platform and High-speed progressive tune can suite any terrain. From fire-road climbs to big flowy jump lines to high-speed chunky rocks, VTT-6P can adapt to all terrain with flick of a switch.
