Manitou Tower Pro 29 fork review
Our sample was heavier than the claimed weight of 1697g, but it’s reasonably light for its price.
The Tower offers 80, 100 or 120mm of travel, with a quick release or 20mm screw-thru axle. The spring medium is the well-regarded MARS Air.
Offset is 48mm and Absolute Plus compression damping offers external low-speed adjustments plus internal high-speed adjustments. We wanted rebound damping set to maximum to tame an over-bouncy feel but performance was otherwise spot-on for all sorts of terrain.
A progressive lockout lever sits on top of the right leg. It’s good value too.
