I think it depends on where and how hard you ride.ifouiripilay said:I'm trying to see all my options for a 180mm fork for the highline. I know of the usual suspects: marz rc3, totem but never hear of the travis nor is the much info on it.
I just finish the highline w/ a rc2 which has nothing wrong w/ it, I just want the 180mm travel. So far the rc3 is my primary choice. Other than negatives like manipoo, does any one know how the travis performs? Thanks
The travis performs great until you you're ripping a 4,000 foot descent top to bottom, bottom it out and blow the intrinsic (or tpc+) cartridge up. Others have had more success, but I went through 5 cartridges on mine at Whistler over the course of a season. Thankfully, Summit Sports is a Manitou factory service center, so I was never more than a few hours off the bike.
