Magura 2-stroke S 2002 Front Shocks

4.5/5 (2 Reviews)
Weight : 1850 grams


Product Description

New 2002: New designed oversized, ulstrastiff one piece magnesium sliders. DOUBLE bolted, service friendly hollow tech crown (cold forged). The already awesome stiffness of the fork (which is crucial with the disc brake use in mind) has been enhanced again. Both dropouts and disc brake fitting eyelets (IS compatible!) are equipped with magnesium corrosion protectors: maximum corrosion protection and lowest tolerances bring along perfect disc brake caliper alignment. Sliders with an integrated disc brake hose guide ensure a clean and esthetic hose routing.

Strengths:    It works perfectly.

Weaknesses:    a bit too heavy

Bottom Line:   
2000 km of XC without any problem. Just works as it schould. At the beginnig I was thinking to change that Rond for some lighter fork, but there is no reason. Great work with disc brakes. For that price no 1 (for me).

Date Reviewed: June 6, 2002

Strengths:    Strong fork, stiffness, plush suspension travel

Weaknesses:    Paintjob if you are unlucky

Bottom Line:   
If you are our for a simple, well working and affordable fork, this is it. A Fox Forx is a bit the same, but more expensive and so on. The Rond comes at some weight, but you don't build anything this stiff with springs as light as a SID.
I have been using the 2001 version from july 2001. Than in february 2002 the paint started falling of the fork lowers. Sent it off to Rond (who still makes the forks altough it now has Magura logo on it) who promised to replace the lowers. Living in the Netherlands is a plus with Rond service cases, but OK, Magura services overall isn't bad.
Anyway, I got to choose the color I liked for my new lowers. Instead of just fixing em on like they told me they placed the old internals into a 2002 fork. This had a far lighter crown, so the weight is very OK now.
The fork is very plush and stiff, I basically like it very much.

What Pressure Are You Running With Knards And With 2.5's On Rabbit Holes?

I just set up my Karate Monkey with a Knard/Rabbit Hole up front and a WeirWolf LT/Rabbit Hole in the back. I've been experimenting with trying to find the ideal tire pressure, but I'm curious to see what other people have been running. For what it's worth I'm 260lbs and my typical ride involves ...

Mojo SL's fit 2.35 Nobby Nics? And other ?sss

I'm looking into building an SL for 650b. I love my TRc after I 650b'd it, despite my skepticism it was a noticeable improvement. But I'm a DW-link fan and want more than 120mm travel (After having to shim the shock of the TRc). I searched but couldn't find any current info on whether or not a 2. ... Read More »

Can a Jones Diamond rear fit a Conti MKII 2.4 on P35's?

I recently built a Jones diamond with Ardent 2.4's on P35 rims. The Ardents fit great but i didn't like the traction in the rear on slick rooty climbs so I threw a Continental MKII 2.2 on the back since that's what I'd been riding on my previous bike and really liked. The wide P35's gave the 2.2 a ... Read More »
