The Circus is here the Circus is here..!


The Hayes Bicycle Group is pleased to announce the 2011 Manitou Circus jump forks are ready to ship.

The 2011 Circus line up features new technologies designed specifically for dirt jump applications. With a new casting and crown the Circus is ready for anything you can throw at it. With proven durability the new Circus jump fork out performs the competition in price and weight. Our proven Absolute+ damping system is tuned specifically with our “ Jump Stack” shim kit which provides total control. The Circus forks have endured and amassed amazing results in its first season with Mike Montgomery and host of others.


The Circus fork was designed, tested and developed in North America and
abroad. A big thank you goes out to Mike Montgomery, Adam Williams,
Daryl Brown, Dustin Greenall and the Meyers Brothers for delivering proper
gnar throughout the 2010 season.
