Our review

New damping gives outstanding downhill control and smoothness
Skip to view product specifications

The simplest, plushest Lyrik fork only gets subtle changes this year, but the differences are big where it matters.


Travel stretches to 170mm (6.7in) with the Maxle Lite axle, but it still feels totally surefooted in the most random rock garden situations. You also get two extra springs supplied with the fork if the one supplied isn’t the right weight.

The new DH Mission Control swaps pop-up Floodgate platform damping for faster flowing big hit, long drop compression. It feels like it might be too dive-prone in the workshop, but on extended rocky descents or big drops it’s phenomenal.


Position-sensitive Dual Flow rebound controls the return impeccably for outstanding overall control. A U-Turn option with standard Mission Control Floodgate is also available for £799.99.
