MXT Lucky System -

WP XPLOR FORKS

The new MXT XPLR Cartridge System (XPLR) is the result of innovative engineering and a commitment to bring riders the best value in the suspension market. Major enhancements include:

  • 3/4 of a pound lighter than a stock WP-XPLOR forks
  • Huck Valve
  • Leaf Spring Midvalve
  • Dual cartridges
  • This XPLR is drop in ready
  • DIY: People with prior suspension experience can install this system

The stock WP XPLOR fork is a low cost design that results in very soft suspension. In fact, riders who are more aggressive and attempt to push the stock forks at a higher than trail tour pace – find the forks too soft, unpredictable and easy to bottom. Due to the low cost design it is very challenging to achieve a set-up that is firm enough for race pace, or even aggressive trail riding and yet soft enough to be comfortable. For this reason, we set out to develop a fork kit that would solve the issues by adding dual compression and rebound cartridges. These dual cartridges distribute valving equally between both forks. Each side also has leaf spring midvalves that optimized pressure balance, and provides a broad performance profile for riders who expect a plush ride while maintaining excellent traction and control.

Traditional stock bottoming control system are limited in that they can't manage multiple speeds or accelerations inside the travel. Stock systems can be adjusted to provide good control for either low or high speed bottoming, but doing so limits the ability to absorb the other. The MXT Huck Valve manages the limitations of typical bottoming control systems. The Huck Valve includes speed sensitive bottoming control, by incorporating a pressure sensitive valving mechanism. This allows for both high entry speeds and low entry speeds effectively. MXT Huck Valve equipped forks allows the set-up to be plusher while not sacrificing the overall control of the fork.

Bottom line, if you are looking for stronger suspension and better performance in the trails, this upgrade is worth the investment.

    The Lucky System includes the proven Huck Valve, designed to increase volume while allowing for additional pressure transfer parallel to the system. Traditional stock bottoming control is limited in that it can't manage multiple speeds or accelerations inside the travel. Stock bottoming control is limited to either high or low-speed bottoming. The MXT Huck Valve manages the limitations of typical bottoming control systems. The MXT Huck Valve has speed sensitive bottoming control, by incorporating a pressure sensitive valving mechanism. This allows for both high and low entry speeds. MXT Huck Valve equipped forks allows the set-up to be plusher while not sacrificing the overall control of the fork.

    Lucky forks average 3 pounds lighter than stock forks. As a result of being among the lightest in class, they deliver excellent feel, positive steering response, and increased traction.  

    An increase in cartridge volume provides more control and support through the middle of the stroke. As an example, riders notice the inherent stiffness of a stock fork. This is due to a valving set-up that requires stiff settings to control large fork movements, which produce frictional effects and forces created by cartridge pressurization. With the Lucky, the new 3 port mid-valve piston can be adjusted to improve the initial feel and reaction.

    New adjusters were added to simplify tuning for the rider. Finally, attention was given to better-machined bearings and pressurized seal surfaces to reduce friction*.
