The Loop SL is built on the same sturdy chassis as the TR, but sheds almost a quarter-pound thanks to weight saving design features. MRP prides itself on the longevity and reliability of it's products, and unlike other XC oriented forks, the SL will give you a season or more of perfect performance without major maintenance. The large-volume of oil utilized in the SL's damper helps in this regard, as well as contributes to it's consistent damping feel. The damper features a three-position compression adjustment with a soft, mid, and a platform-like firm setting for quick and effective tuning on the bike. In the firm setting, a hydraulic valve is employed in the compression circuit to eliminate rider-induced suspension movement and filter low-speed compression events. In the event of a sharp hit however, the valve blows-off to better maintain traction and combat harsh trail feedback.
