Manitou Dorado 2004 Front Shocks

Dorado forks are already world-renowned for their long travel, high performance design. Now the 2004 Dorado ups the ante again by adding an available SPV (stable platform valve) to the Dorado MRD X-Works, a new fork with 200mm of travel. Also available is the Dorado DH, a 180mm travel model that uses traditional Manitou TPC+ damping.

Strength:

Very plush, very stong, very nice weight. This fork I have to say is by far way better than any RS boxxer out there.

Weakness:

Umm non that I can see.

Thanks to Cortina on being my sponsor for this season, I could not have done it with out you guys. As for the Shock it is the best thing to hit me and my bike. Sweet fork.

Strength:

buttery smooth travel, super light, not nearly as flexy as they are made out to be, no more than a crappy boxxer anyways. best fork i have put on my bike

Weakness:

#1) the price, not everyone can go drop 1500-1800 on a new fork.
very very slight leakage from the seals, but what invert doesnt leak a tiny bit? well worth having to put in 10cc of oil every second week or so, depending on how much you ride.

best fork out there. bottem line! if Bearcloth can chuck em off 20+ footers and not break em then you know they are strong. will out perform any fork out there, awsome pedal platform, easy adjustability, no were near as finicky as a boxxer, dampaning is money, never bottemed fork out yet and the first thing i went and did was a 8+ft before even tuning it to my liking. if these forks were as flexy and weak as everyone is trying to make them out to be then why would so many top dh/fr riders be using them?
