2024 Manitou Mastodon Pro - Gen 3

The Mastodon not just a modified fork tweaked to fit large fat bike tires. It's designed from the ground up as a fat bike fork, enhancing your riding experience, regardless of the temperature. Crafting such a versatile fork demanded rigorous testing in some of the harshest environments worldwide, conducted by Manitou's dedicated R+D team. To secure its place in the Manitou family, the Mastodon underwent extensive real-world and laboratory testing, enduring temperatures as frigid as -40 degrees. Every component, from the Dorado Air system, to the seals and lubricants, has proven its capability for unsurpassed, all-weather performance, no matter how extreme the temperature swings.

Like all Manitou Pro-level suspension systems, the Mastodon Pro employs the renowned Dorado air spring technology initially introduced in the iconic Manitou Dorado model. This latest iteration of the Mastodon Pro introduces the VTT6 damper, enhancing the adjustment process with a more straightforward and user-friendly design. With a single knob, the VTT6 allows riders to fine-tune both high and low-speed characteristics, offering a broad range of customization options to suit various terrains.

In addition to these advancements, the Mastodon features IVA volume adjustment, enabling precise fine-tuning of the air spring curve. This adaptability caters to an extensive array of conditions, riding styles, and individual preferences, ensuring an optimal setup for every rider.

Key Features:

  • 106g of weight savings from the previous model with new crown, legs and internals.
  • DoradoTM air allows for internal travel adjustments with no added parts. New travel spacers account for negative air volume change, so the 80mm fork has the same initial stroke feel as the 160mm.
  • 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. Dorado Air is our lightest weight air spring technology.
  • 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 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 suite any terrain.
  • New crown is 84g lighter, with increased knob clearance. 44mm offset to match modern fatbike geometry for precise handling and increased traction.
  • Front brake routing allows the user to use the same length brake hose from their rigid fork, or other suspension fork. New arch ribs for increased casting stiffness.
  • Tire diameter clearance is 2mm shorter that current EXT model, with a 6mm reduction of axle to crown. 796mm satisfies every fatbike tire on the market!
