Maverick SC 32 2006 Front Shocks

4/5 (3 Reviews)
MSRP : $630.00


Product Description

So some people just can’t take 6 inches it seems. Ahead of our time? Maybe. The SC32 slides right on our ML7 bike to provide almost 5” of single-crown magic. Other companies spec it on their 4 and 5” travel bikes.

Featuring all of the inverted goodness of the DUC32, just with a single crown, a traditional 1 1/8” steerer and an inch shorter travel. Adjustable features include rebound, air pressure, oil volume and viscosity. All in a 3.8 pound package.

Strengths:    Looks
Innovative
Stiffness
User friendly both on the trail and maintainance
It's Maverick!!


Weaknesses:    Well, you need to build a new wheel, unless you have a 24mm front wheel around.

Bottom Line:   
You've got to love Maverick and actually use it. Some just test riding and claimed they know how the product perform.

It's proprietary but not an issue. Very user friendly if you can tune it yourself you can have it any way you want. Almost set it and forget it kind of deal. I find that most people who own Maverick products own more than just one item they'd own more or multiple Mavericks products because it's good stuff.

Stock set up
The climb mode is very useful when you are out of saddle the fork feel firm and encourage the action still give plenty of cover over the rough stuff on the climb. Extend the travel and be prepare steering is very precise Zero deflection. Inverted design give a buttery smooth travel.

mods
Plenty of modification options I own several maverick forks so I tried different thing like: Climb mode disable: This will create a rather large range of rebound adjustment.

Different wheel size compatible. I use SC32 with 26er, 29er, 650b, and 700c as long as the front wheel is set up with the 24mm hub it will fit all that just minor spacing on the travel.

Strengths:    The fork looks really cool.

Weaknesses:    Nothing big...except, quality and costumer service. The damper's pretty archaic. There are traditional 5" forks out there that are lighter and stiffer

Bottom Line:   
Other than the aesthetics, this fork really doesn't have much going for it. Inside a year, the seals blew out of the bottom of this fork THREE different times. Since I live in Boulder, I would just drop it off at the Maverick HQ to get rebuilt. The last time this happened, i was told that i should be taking my bike to a shop to get fixed...and not in a really polite way either. After getting a little upset and letting them know that this indeed was the THIRD time in a year...the first year, they did fix it. I'm a 160 lb. XC guy. This fork was on the bike that I rode occasionally. There’s no way that this should have happened. They claim five inches of travel, I was getting more like four. The lock down mechanism only locked down about an inch. As i know a lot of people around these parts that have had the same problem, i would not recommend this fork to anybody. I'm just getting around to writing this review because I just got back from a race where aother friend of mine was complaining about it taking almost three weeks to get his fork back from Maverick. Save yourself the grief.

Strengths:    Superlight and superstiff! Handles amazing! The stroke is butter smooth. Really easy to setup and the climbing mode is sweet.

Weaknesses:    Limited hub selection for 24mm.

Bottom Line:   
Awesome fork. I wish they made a 4" travel version.

SC Specific Fox Float 32, change travel?

Hi, Just about to buy a SC TRc with "stock" FOX 32 RLC Fit fork. The current travel is 130 mm and I wonder if this is a SC OEM setting. I can only find 140mm FOX 32 RLC fit on FOX home page. Can these forks be re-set to 140 mm by changing / taking out spacers? Link to instruction? ThanksRead More »
