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.
