Our review

Not the smoothest, lightest or most modern 100mm fork, but outstandingly stiff for a quick-release unit
Skip to view product specifications

The Menja chassis hasn’t changed for a while and still has hardware for Magura’s HS33 hydraulic rim brakes plus IS (International Standard) brake mounts with stainless steel faces and guides for remote cables.


The rectangular curved crown, deep scalloped crown/stanchion overlap and square front and rear braces give an outstandingly stiff tracking feel for a quick-release fork. Even once it’s bedded in it’s not the smoothest fork off the top, but it works fine through mid-sized stuff, and 2011 tweaks mean it’s more progressive through the travel than older, dive prone Maguras.


The lighter oil weight helps on steps and repeated hit sections where rebound is less likely to get caught out and they don’t lock out completely once it gets frosty. The manual DLO top cap allows some low speed movement for traction when the fork is otherwise locked out. Magura’s fork reliability has been bombproof recently too.
