I have been riding the new Magura Thor 140mm All Mountain fork for almost 5 months now, and have had it in all sorts of terrain, and have been able to compare it against several competing forks, and I must say it is an exceptional fork.

And I command thee to kneel
Before the
God of thunder and rock and roll
The spell you’re under
Will slowly rob you of your virgin soul

Thor God

Thor – God of Thunder

Thor Mythology
Thor is the red-haired and bearded god of thunder in Germanic mythology and Germanic paganism. Thor was a revered god of the ancient Germanic people from at least the earliest surviving written accounts of the indigenous Germanic tribes to over a thousand years later in the late Viking Age. Thor owns a short-handled hammer, Mjolnir, which, when thrown at a target, returns magically to the owner. His Mjolnir also has the power to throw lightning bolts. To wield Mjolnir, Thor wears the belt Megingjord, which boosts the wearer’s strength and a pair of special iron gloves, Járngreipr, to lift the hammer.

Thursday is named after him, it literally means ‘Day of Thor’.

Thor – Rock Star

Thor is also the Legendary Rock Warrior. John Mikl Thor, a.k.a. Thor, is a straight-faced Germanic/Norse god impersonator, semi-professional bodybuilder, on-stage wrestler, all-around performance artist (known to bend a steel bar between his teeth!), sometime actor, and rock and roll singer. I still have his first record from 1978 with the classic songs like “Keep the Dogs Away” and “Sleeping Giant”, with lyrics like “You are like straws against the wind…”.

Furthermore, Thor is the Marvel comics superhero.

About the author: Brian Mullin

Brian has been part of the Mtbr team since 2007, where he has become an integral member of the review and test staff, specializing in technical articles. He likes to push the limits in all the sports he obsesses in, whether it's mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, extreme skiing, or sport climbing. He takes those same strengths and a good dose of insanity to his reviewing and writing on mountain biking products, creating technical, in-depth and hyperbolic articles. Whenever he's not on the bike, he might be found watching MotoGP racing, otherwise look for him out on extremely technical singletrack.

    Super-useful review Brian. A lot tighter then the manual. I’m going to try to set it up with 90psi (I’m 160lbs) and dial in the Albert platform setting a little more firm

    Does the fork not have a rebound adjustment? Maybe if you try some heavier oil in the rebound cercuit it will slow down for you

  • Brian Mullin says:

    Yes, the Thor has a rebound adjustment, I played with it, then you have a slower strong return instead of a fast one! I did not change the oil in the fork, the strong rebound was not that much of an issue, and it did help keep the wheel planted on rocky climbs.
