Manitou Travis Triple Intrinsic - Hit Or Shit?

Postby r_s on Fri 23/Jun/06 4:22pm

Ive been hearing good things about the Travis this season but im wanting to know are they what people say they are? To what Ive heard Manitou dont have the best wrap sheet when it comes down to there forks. I'm wanting to build up a DH Bike but will be doing some Freeride aswell. I'd love to try out The Travis but i dont wanna be forking out moola to get them constantly serviced. Ive had a breif ride on a bike with the Single Clamp 180mm Travis fork and it felt very nice but it brand new and hadn't done any racing...


Cheers Sam

I don't think they've been properly released yet.

Would you rather wait for a product to come out properly tested, or would you rather pay hard earned money to experience test problems first hand?

The intrinsic damping system is the biggest upgrade in their new forks. There are ofcourse some other changes with the Travis forks, the bushes/seals/shim-stack configuration, but they are probably not as relevant as the change from SPV's air-sprung valve unit.

I find it wierd that 14 people have voted, and Sportspro haven't shipped any out to any of the bike stores yet.
