The Stage is ready to take you to the top of an enduro podium or confidently to the bottom of any technical descent. With up to 170mm of travel for the 27.5” model and 140mm of travel for the 29” model the Stage offers plenty of controlled, supple, and refined suspension for high-speed descents and rowdy terrain. 34mm stanchions, the QtapeR 15mm axle, and a robust cast magnesium lower with oversized arch keep the Stage on track in any situation.
The Stage offers more external tuning than competing forks, including an eight position compression adjustment and the revolutionary new Ramp Control feature. The high-tech compression circuit features a magnetic blow-off valve that eliminates the possibility of spiking, thereby reducing rider fatigue and enhancing control. The Ramp Control feature allows the user to adjust, on the fly, the desired ending stroke spring curve. Dial in the Ramp Control to retain the Stage's supple small bump compliance but get a progressive, big-hit feel or dial it out for a more linear stroke, independent of sag and ride-height.

- MRP Stage 27.5" Review by Tyler Booth
MRP is known for their work with chain guides, but did you know they make a killer enduro fork?
MRP has snuck in a badass enduro fork into their product line, and boy is it worth checking out! With it's 34mm black stanchions and black chassis, it's definitely a sweet looking fork.
Right out of the box, it was as plush as can be (And I love plush)! The fork was set for me at 170mm for my Canfield Balance. Clicked in some rebound, analyzed the Ramp Control, and even bled out some air pressure with the air bleed valve attached to the Ramp Control knob, and I was ready to hit some tech!
The fork had amazing stiffness for a 34mm 170mm setup. Plush as can be on big hits, but the Ramp Control was really a key factor I could feel in those big hits. It felt so endless in the travel. And through the root infested woods, my small bump compliance was incredible. Literally, it was the best I've ever felt out of a single crown! And at the end of the trail, I still had a good 1/2-1 in. of travel left. Dialed back the Ramp, made it even more plush and comfy, and shredded even harder!
Overall, this fork is a real time competitor with the BOS Deville, DVO Diamond, Marzocchi 350, & the rest of the known brands, and for a great price at $969! If you want to stray off the mainstream path & hook up with the new, big time competitor, then get your Stage ordered now!
Did I mention they make their forks to order?? This ain't no fast food suspension fork, this is premium grade suspension! (Posted on 10/24/2014)
- Stage Review by Nick Simcik
It has been some time since I have been on a product (besides a new frame) that has transformed my riding and increased my confidence on the trail. The MRP Stage is that product. Setting it up was quite easy and fine tuning to optimal performance was a jiff.
I am a rider who doesn't always choose the fast line or the smooth line, I like the fun line. Sometimes that entails hitting jumps or drops into rock gardens or trying lines that are awkward and techy. A fork chassis either fails to keep up or excels. The Stage has a ton of stiffness that actually encourages me to try more and more of these lines. It's not just the chassis that allows me to take the lines I enjoy, the damper has excellent support, the small bump compliance is exceptional, but the thing that stands out the most is Ramp Control. Here in Colorado we have a bit of everything, from smooth singletrack to super rough fast trails. The Ramp Control allows me to dial in my ride for each trail I ride in seconds.
With a 200 hour service interval, handcrafted in Colorado, and excellent performance, the Stage is tough to beat. (Posted on 10/23/2014)
