Manitou's new Circus Pro 34 fork is designed to deliver a blend of performance and functionality thanks to an updated front-brake configuration that is said to enhance and improve the dirt-jumping experience.
Manitou has included the option to route a brake line through the fork. Armed with 160mm post mount spacing, the updated fork caters to front brake dirt jumping athletes, offering enhanced convenience and a lower-profile disc that stays out of the way during manoeuvres. The fork's stiffness is improved through Boost spacing, but Manitou has considered those who prefer non-boost front wheels by providing spacers for maximum compatibility.

The Circus Pro 34 benefits from adjustable travel – 80mm to 140mm – which can be increased or decreased in 10mm increments. The DoradoTM air spring system allows for internal travel adjustments without the need for additional components. New travel spacers ensure that the 80mm fork provides the same initial stroke feel as the 140mm, all within a single chassis. Adding to the versatility are 20 clicks of rebound adjustment.

Manitou has reduced weight through the incorporation of a half-cartridge rebound system, which has a lower oil volume and lighter construction. This saves 176g in weight compared to the previous model.
The Circus Pro 34 fork is available now and retails for $840 (£695).
