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).

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.

2 pinch flats in 2 weeks and I DON'T need tubeless - here's why

Earlier this Summer it was wet. A lot. I was running my rigid Nimble 9 with just over 20 psi in my 29 x 2.2 tires. That worked perfectly fine. Then it started to dry out. Speeds started to pick up. My fitness was improving (at an embarrassingly slow rate). My speed started to pick up. ... Read More »

Front Tires (29", NM Desert Use) to pair with Geax Saguaro 2.2's

I'm trying to sort out what my next set of tires is going to be, and I've figured out that for my riding venues and style the Saguaro is simply unbeatable up front - has enough rolling resistance and durability for everything I need, and the rare occasions where it drops traction are already well pa ...

New trail bike wheelset: Flow EX on Hope 2's vs RaceFace Turbine

Hey guys, I'm trying to decide which wheels will go on my first(and probably last) full suspension build. This bike won't be going up or down mountains(hard to find in NE TX) but we have lots of tight single track with roots and rock gardens, which put a real beating on my hard tail's wheelset, so ...
