Magura Menja 100 XC fork

Our review

Loads of options available but the weight is a little high for 100mm
Skip to view product specifications

Magura’s entry-level fork uses an old casting, but it’s still reasonably stiff and durable. The lowers have an IS rather than post-style brake mount, but the double brace design still gives impressive steering stiffness for a quick-release fork.

It’ll take up to a 210mm rotor, and you get direct FIRM-tech mounts for Magura’s unique HS33 hydraulic rim brake. A cantilever and disc brake version is also available in the shorter (85mm) travel format.

The stroke takes some air pressure juggling to get a reasonable sensitivity without dive, but racers will like the fact that it always feels tight rather than plush.

The fork-top DLO+ lockout gives some initial movement for climbing and cornering traction, and there’s a remote option available. A range of colours offers unique co-ordination but it is a little bit weighty for a 100mm fork.
