The Stage is ready to take you to the top of an enduro podium or confidently to the bottom of any technical descent. With up to 170mm of travel for the 26 / 27.5” model and 150mm of travel for the 29” model the Stage offers plenty of controlled, supple, and refined suspension for high-speed descents and rowdy terrain. 34mm stanchions, the QtapeR 15mm axle, and a robust cast magnesium lower with oversized arch keep the Stage on track in any situation. The Stage offers more external tuning than competing forks, including an eight position compression adjustment and the revolutionary new Ramp Control feature. The high-tech compression circuit features a magnetic blow-off valve that eliminates the possibility of spiking, thereby reducing rider fatigue and enhaning control. The Ramp Control feature allows the user to adjust, on the fly, the desired ending stroke spring curve. Dial in the Ramp Control to retain the Stage's supple small bump compliance but get a progressive, big-hit feel or dial it out for a more linear stroke, independent of sag and ride-height.
