|The MTN-8 forks feature 43 mm lower sliders and 2 inch diameter upper stanchions. Each are CNC machined out of 6061-T6 hard coat anodized aluminum. The fork legs are guided by low friction teflon coated bushings which keep stiction to a minimum while maintaining the necessary control for the most demanding riders. The seals are high quality spring loaded triple-lip type with a separate dust seal. This provides you with the longest life seals and bushings available, period! And the 8 inches of fork travel will allow you to soak up the most demanding terrain, producing a superior ride as compared to your competitors with their 6 inch travel forks.
