Magura 2-stroke S 2002 Front Shocks

Magura 2-stroke S 2002 Front Shocks 

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.

Strength:

It works perfectly.

Weakness:

a bit too heavy

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).

Strength:

Strong fork, stiffness, plush suspension travel

Weakness:

Paintjob if you are unlucky

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.
