Back and better than ever the new Dorado Expert is ready to take on the gnarliest conditions mountain biking can provide. Whether you’re looking to cut seconds off the splits, lap the local park, or get sendy in the back hills of Utah the Dorado Expert has you covered. Featuring an all-new 37mm chassis, completely redesigned internals, and on-trail precision that only inverted forks can provide, the new Dorado is your ticket to the best ride you’ve ever had.

  • New 37mm Chassis results in a massive increase in stiffness and ride quality. The new chassis is 20% stiffer compared to our former 36mm version
  • Inverted Design provides an incredibly smooth and consistent feel due to constant lubrication of the bushings and seals. The inverted design also provides a major increase in fore-aft stiffness compared to traditional forks while maintaining torsional compliance which provides more control to the rider over rough terrain.
  • Dorado Air Spring system contains a unique balancing valve that equalizes the positive and negative air chambers during the air fill process resulting in a consistent feel without any flat or dead spots. It also allows easy Travel Adjustability from 180 to 190 and 203mm without the need for any spare parts.
  • IVA (incremental Volume Adjust) modifies the volume in the positive air chamber with self contained spacers dictating the position of the IVA piston and your volume amount.
  • New TPC+ Damper has increased oil volume and improved flow paths for improved bump compliance and increased consistency. TPC+ features two compression pistons, a hydraulic bottom out, and a spring backed IFP for a smooth and predictable feel for every impact. Adjustments include; High-speed compression, Low-speed compression, and Low-speed rebound.
  • Fits both 29" and 27.5" wheels. Markings on the outer legs indicate the proper clamping point for ideal axle to crown measurements depending on wheel size. The fork legs can be used with both wheel sizes.
  • Two Crown Options are available with this fork. The 47 offset is designed to work with 27.5" wheels and intended axle to crown. The 57 offset crown is designed for 29" wheels and axle to crown. For those looking to run the lower offset crown with 29" wheels please reference Manitou's fit document to see if your headtube length is compatible.
  • TSR Bleed Screws allow you to release excess pressures built up in the outer legs of your fork while riding keeping your fork smooth and supple all day long
Dorado Air + TSR Trail Side Relief

Dorado Air spring systems contain a unique balancing valve that equalizes the positive and negative air chambers during the air fill process. This gives the spring rate a consistent feel without any flat or dead spots in the stroke, along with giving riders of different weights the same initial stroke feel.

TSR Bleed screws allow excess pressure built up in the outer legs of the fork to be equalized with a simple threaded screw.

TPC+ Twin-Piston Cartridge

Dorado Expert features TPC+ in a half cartridge format that has a redesigned architecture that reduces pressure losses during the rebound stroke by separating the check-valve from the compression pistons. It also features a new single high-flow check valve design that increases flow paths for improved small-bump compliance and increased damping consistency. The HBO circuit has been moved inside the damping cartridge to be fully submerged within the damping fluid to further improve end-of-stroke consistency. The redesigned knob and detent design offers fine-tuning of the adjustment range. Both low and high-speed compression are adjusted independently of each other on the bottom of the fork with the rebound adjustment found on top.

Inverted Design, 37mm Stanchions

Inverted forks provide an incredibly smooth and consistent feel due to the constant lubrication of the bushings and seals. Inverted forks also provide a major increase in fore-aft stiffness with much longer bushing overlap compared to traditional fork designs while maintaining torsional compliance which provides more control to the rider over rough trail sections.

37mm proved to be the perfect balance of increased stiffness, weight savings, and an ideal seal surface area for reduced friction. Compared to the previous 36mm version of the Dorado, the new 37mm alloy increased in stiffness at 20% for both fore-aft and torsionally when compared to the former 36mm. Dorado Expert is e-bike certified.
