RockShox founder Paul Turner started Maverick American in 1999 the same way he did RockShox in 1987, by building something he and a few friends could use to enhance their off-road riding pleasure. Eight years later, Maverick has gone beyond what Turner and RockShox 1.0 did: develop a full-suspension platform based on complete bikes, not just the front or rear components.
The Maverick Matic is the culmination of this focus, and at $US3,729, reflects a maturation of sorts for the Boulder, Colorado company who first introduced $US1,000 forks to the market just a few years ago. Complete bikes is a competitive business, but Turner & Company are unconventional thinkers and tinkerers, and the Matic offers several features to whet the dirt-lover's appetite, including five inches of travel, eight custom options, Monolink technology, natural wheel path engineering, and minimal chain growth.
