The Lyrik DH coil is still one of the best long-travel forks available. The power-bulged 35mm stanchion structure feels rock solid and accurate, however hard you steer, brake or carve through rocky, rooty or off-camber sections.
The 170mm coil-spring stroke eases into a predictably plush action over the first few rides and stays there. The Boxxer fork derived Mission Control DH damping gives multi-stage rebound damping and faster big-hit flow for totally consistent, spike-, dive- and cavitation-free smoothness.
Mission Control DH means no ‘Floodgate’ lockout, but the Lyrik is high- and low-speed compression adjustable. Two different weight springs and a sticker kit are also included.
