Not faultless but still the ultimate single crown freeride fork
Skip to view product specifications

The Totem is the king of single crown forks and the god of freeride. With monolithic Maxle lowers sliding on 40mm stanchions and a 1.5in steerer option, it’s as slam-proof a single crown as you’ll get.


Getting the high/low/platform compression damping balance right needs patience. Once there though, the consistent smoothness and precise impact control is unrivalled by all but the best downhill forks.


‘Speedlube’ syringe-based oil changing makes refreshing them after a day of runs easy too, although we do still hear of people having regular problems with Totems.
