Press Release: Mantiou
Manitou announces Mezzer Expert Enduro Fork, another new addition to the Mezzer family of forks, creating a more affordable price. This coming from the suspension division of Hayes to add to the value enduro fork offering, not breaking the bank.
The Mezzer Pro use an MC2 Damper and comes complete with the IRT volume adjuster. On the Mezzer Expert, the fork’s compression is controlled by the all new VVT-6P damper. This provides six primary adjustments. Therefor, the Mezzer Expert’s high and low speed compression are activated simultaneously when adjusting a single knob. This is opposed to the Mezzer Pro, where you can tailor the high or low speed compression with dedicated adjuster knobs. This is the Expert Air system which is derived from the Dorado Air system offering the balancing valve for positive and negative air chambers.
The Incremental Volume Adjuster (IVA), found at the top of the top of the leg, modifies the air volume with self-contained spacers.

Targeting the enduro market the Mezzer Expert comes in 27.5 inch and 29 inch wheel size configurations. And, travel ranges from 140mm to 180mm. Riders can chose their ideal travel mode in 10mm increments. The Mezzer Expert is offered with 37mm stanchions composed of 7000 series aluminum and the signature Reverse Arch technology. The forks weighs in at a light weight 2030g (27.5” at 180mm) which places it in second spot for the lightest fork in the Enduro lineup.
