MRP's New 2018 Product Line (New Fork, Shock, and Chain Guides)

MRP is a brand known by riders who truly love the sport of mountain biking. Having created popular products like their bash guards, chainguides and Ramp Control Cartridges that you can use to upgrade your existing Fox or Rockshox forks, you can imagine they have quite a bit of knowledge and are dedicated to creating the ultimate ride. New for 2018, they have introduced 3 new products that include a dual crown fork that can be used for either long-travel trail bikes or gnarly downhill rigs for racing or freeride. A new Coil-Sprung Rear Shock available in both Standard and Metric sizing. Last but not least, the all-new Core Series Chain Guides. With what may be the most sought after chain guilds on the market as well as winning PinkBike’s Suspension Product of the Year for 2017 with the Ribbon Fork you can expect nothing but quality in these new products.

MRP 2018 Bartlett Fork

The All new Bartlett Fork is unique. It is light enough (weighing in at 5.5-5.7 lbs.) to be equipped aboard most long-travel trail bikes yet durable enough to be beaten on the harshest of downhill courses and freeride features in the world. The dual crown design leaves you with more room for travel while being able to keep the axle to crown length down low do you don’t feel like you are riding a chopper. It also leads to a stiffer design with much more controlled steering. The Bartlett features the highly-tunable FulFill™ air-spring, low-pressure IFP damper, PSST™ pressure relief valves, and Outcast™ arch design carryover from the award-winning Ribbon. In addition to MRP’s acclaimed Ramp Control™ technology, the Bartlett also features tunable air-spring volume by way of threaded spacers that attach to the Ramp Control™ cartridge. So it may easily be used as a secondary fork by riders heading to the bike park or using their enduro bike for DH racing. The Bartlett uses “Boost” 15x110 spacing - allowing those riders to use their existing wheels. The Bartlett takes its name from the natural sandstone freeride playground of Bartlett Wash in nearby Moab, Utah and is the perfect fork for the new breed of ultra-long-travel bikes that are bridging the gap between all-mountain and downhill.

MRP 2018 Hazzard Shock

 

The all-new Hazard Coil Rear Shock is the shock dedicated to those riders who don’t want to sacrifice the performance or control of their bike. Like most Coil Sprung Shocks the Hazzard will give you supple action, lower friction, longer service life, and more consistency with Control over both high and low-speed compression damping, rebound, and spring preload. It also features a convenient low-speed compression switch that firms up the shock immensely for sustained climbs and stage transfers. The biggest perk of the Hazzard is it’s compatibility with bikes that required air-sprung shocks do to design with their new Progressive Springs. It is available in both Standard and Metric Sizing with Traditional Eyelet, bearing and Trunion mounting. The shock can use our standard steel springs or MRP’s new Enduro SL and Progressive springs. Nine decal color options let you match it to your ride! Just like Hazzard is most riders’ favorite section of Moab’s Whole Enchilada trail, the Hazzard shock may just be the favorite part of your bike. It delivers grin-inducing performance that remains consistent, top to bottom. And, a handy low-speed compression switch firms things up so you can head back up for more.
