Coil suspension is known for its suppleness, mid-stroke support, and its ability to eat up gnarly terrain while allowing you to float over the trail and maintain correct body position. The Ribbon Coil inspires confidence on everything from the gnarliest rock gardens to the loosest turns.
Suspension builders promise coil-like performance. You deserve actual coil performance.
The Ribbon Coil provides supple, small bump compliance, unmatched mid-stroke support, and out-of-the box performance that will have you shredding the gnarliest lines.
The Ribbon Coil Provides:
The Ribbon Coil offers hassle-free performance. Say goodbye to fiddling with different pressures. Straight forward rebound and compression damping adjustability allows you to get the ride you want with without feeling like your constantly messing with settings that affect other aspects of the fork. And, with MRP's patented Ramp Control technology, you can dial in your spring progression on the trail, giving you even more precise control over your fork's performance.
You may have experienced your shock and/or fork feeling buck-wild several minutes into a long, rough descent. Much of that is the result of friction creating heat, which raises your spring rate. The Ribbon Coil avoids this phenomenon in two ways. For one, fewer seals mean less friction, which also means less heat. Two, the Ribbon Coil doesn’t care if it’s the dead of winter or the dog days of summer, the spring rate stays consistent regardless of temperature.
Coil forks are too heavy
The 29" Ribbon Coil weighs in at 4.65 lbs. That's only 0.2 lbs heavier than the RockShox Lyrik Ultimate or the weight of those 3 dead AA batteries you leave in your bike pack for some reason.
Coil isn't nimble or doesn't have enough "pop"

Coil suspension is "outdated"
Everything from Trophy Trucks to the top Downhill rigs run on coil suspension because of its performance.
