Lighter, stiffer, and more tunable than its competitors, the Mattoc is the desired componentry for all bikes. The Mattoc Expert should be on your bike not just because it can address all needs, but because it can improve the riding experience in a meaningful way. The Expert version of #thepeoplesfork tips the scales at a scant 1770 grams yet is stiffer than nearly anything else available in its travel range. Translation: an extremely lightweight and efficient build whose industry-leading stiffness ensures precise and reactive handling ready to outperform any other product it is compared to. The Manitou Expert boasts an Expert Air spring with IVA, compression damping via the VTT-6P system, and rebound damping via an open cartridge with adjustable TPC. True to Manitou’s industry-leading tuning capabilities, the Expert allows adjustments via Air, Air Volume, Rebound, and 3-position Compression (Open, Trail, Lock) With Open Mode Low-Speed Compression Adjustment. Perhaps the most versatile fork available not only in terms of travel but also application and customization of performance. Such amazing performance, tailor-tuned to your needs, arises from Manitou’s never-ending search for a smoother and better, best ride.


- 27.5” is 20g less than the previous model.
- Over 19% stiffness increase from the current 27.5" 160mm to the new 27.5" 150mm. 29" Stiffness increases are higher.
- Expert air allows for internal travel adjustments with no added parts. New travel spacers account for negative air volume change, so the 110mm fork has the same initial stroke feel as the 150mm
- Expert Air spring systems contain a unique balancing valve that equalizes the positive and negative air chambers during the air fill process. This gives the spring rate a consistent feel without any flat or dead spots in the stroke, along with giving riders of different weights the same initial stroke feel. Expert Air has identical performance to DoradoTM Air in a more cost-effective package.
- Incremental Volume Adjust (IVA) modifies the volume in the positive air chamber with self contained spacers dictating the position of the IVA piston. This allows the main air spring ramp-up to be tuned to the rider's weight, style, and conditions without the need for additional parts.
- A single external compression adjuster that simultaneously adjusts HS and LS damping characteristics. It features a fixed shim stack and a secondary shim stack that is preloaded by the external adjuster. The resulting wide tuning range combines the benefits of a low-speed platform and high-speed progressive tune can suit any terrain.
- Trail Side Relief casting bleed screws allow users to release casting pressure from the fork. Casting pressure increase is normal, and extreme riding can increase the pressure at a fast rate. Temperature and elevation changes can also cause increased casting pressure. Releasing casting pressure can improve overall fork feel and small bump compliance.
