Magura TS6 and TS8 (Tem Suspension) 29er forks

Stiff, light and easy is the theme for Magura suspension. Stiffness is achieved with our DAD design- Dual arch design- This allows Magura to produce forks with lighter 32mm stanchion tubes that remain very stiff. Magura suspension is also “easy”- easy to set up and easy to maintain. Magura 29er forks range in price from $649 for the TS6 to $849 for the TS8. The TS6 and TS8 are mechanically identical, however the TS8 saves you about a quarter pound! Maguras 29er forks are currently available in 100mm and 120mm travel options.
