The Outcast forward facing arch makes a lot of sense in UK conditions!

Designed, tested and built in Colorado, the MRP Ribbon takes it’s name from a trail local to the MRP HQ.

With a variety of terrain from slow, techy moves and near-vertical rollers and slickrock slabs with speeds in excess of 80 km/h, the R+D team knew what the MRP Ribbon needed to do, and came up with this exciting new chassis that is available in 27.5in with 140-170mm of travel; or 29in with 120-160mm travel.

MRP Ribbon

The MRP Ribbon takes it’s name from the Ribbon trail that has elements of everything, and really pushes suspension to the max.

  1. 35mm Stanchions

MRP Ribbon

The MRP Ribbon has a few nifty features not seen on other forks, like the pressure relief valves on the rear of the fork legs for keeping performance consistent at altitude or when pressure builds up. There’s also the Ramp Control which means you can alter the bottom out feel of the fork; and the reversed fork arch design to eliminate mud build up.

We’re looking forward to having a blast on the MRP Ribbon fork soon – keep an eye out for updates!MRP Ribbon
