MRP Interbike 2015

The Stage fork gets more plush

Components Forks Interbike Sponsored post

For 2016, MRP made internal changes to its Stage fork to help improve performance and reduce noise. In addition, a majority of their chain guides are now lined with a noise-reducing TPU material.

MRP Brand Manager Noah Sears walks us through the updates to the Stage fork for valving and explains some of the updates to their new chain guides.

The Stages fork receives minor updates this year to valving, which offers increased performance when the low speed compression is ramped up. The 8 clicks of compression carries over from last year, but there is a larger discernible difference between clicks for a more tunable range.

Other updates include a new wiper seal, which lasts longer and has lower friction. The rebound circuit has also been reworked to help reduce noise by a claimed 26%, so the fork is nearly silent.

There are also new graphics available. MRP will be offering 10 different decal colors to consumers at no additional cost, and each of the color palettes have been selected to pair with the latest crop of 2016 bikes.

The brand came to prominence due to its chain guides and they’re continuing to push updates to that extensive product line. For this year, the majority of their guides are now lined with a TPU material that will help reduce chain slap noise.

MRP Stage Fork Controls

The Stage is ready to take you to the top of an enduro podium or confidently to the bottom of any technical descent. With up to 170mm of travel for the 26 / 27.5” model and 150mm of travel for the 29” model the Stage offers plenty of controlled, supple, and refined suspension for high-speed descents and rowdy terrain. 34mm stanchions, the QtapeR 15mm axle, and a robust cast magnesium lower with oversized arch keep the Stage on track in any situation. The Stage offers more external tuning than competing forks, including an eight position compression adjustment and the revolutionary new Ramp Control feature. The high-tech compression circuit features a magnetic blow-off valve that eliminates the possibility of spiking, thereby reducing rider fatigue and enhancing control. The Ramp Control feature allows the user to adjust, on the fly, the desired ending stroke spring curve. Dial in the Ramp Control to retain the Stage's supple small bump compliance but get a progressive, big-hit feel or dial it out for a more linear stroke, independent of sag and ride-height.

  • Travel: 140*, 150, 160, or 170mm (26/27.5"). 120*, 130, 140, or 150mm (29").
  • Weight: 4.3 lbs. for 26/27.5", 4.4 lbs. for 29"
  • Axle-to-Crown Height: 553mm for 170mm 26/27.5", 558mm for 150mm 29"
  • Spring System: EQUALair

MRP AMg Guide Co-Molding-2

New co-molded "TR" upper guide with softer durometer interior for silent guidance
×

MRP AMg Carbon Guide

The newly redesigned All-Mountain Guide is the love child of two innovative and revered product lines, the 1x and XCg. Perfectly suited to the increasingly popular all-mountain segment, the All-Mountain Guide shares the freshly updated "TR" upper guide with the 1x, and adds MRP's patented integrated skid. The All-Mountain Guide is a great choice for 5-6" travel bikes when used with the latest tensioned rear derailleurs or on its own for shorter-travel trail bikes or hardtails that require bash protection. The contact-free, "upper-only" chain retention means the All-Mountain Guide will be virtually silent and completely drag-free when pedaling. The patented integrated skid will protect your crank and chainring and prevent the chain from ever contacting and potentially damaging your expensive frame.
