The 44 Micro Titanium is an air-sprung fork (the titanium part is the negative spring) for 29in wheels, with a 15mm through-axle. It arrives with 120mm of travel and you can add or take away a 20mm spacer if you prefer 100mm or 140mm. Claimed weight is 2,035g, close to our sample.
The Micro cartridge offers independent compression and rebound damping adjustments and a lockout. The stanchions are nickel coated. Performance remained excellent on all terrain, but it’s pricey so we’re reluctant to wholeheartedly recommend it until we’ve had more long-term feedback.
