Upgrading your fork might be hard but luckily there are many great options for under $500. Many of today’s riders do not require a $1000+ suspension fork, nor can a consumer find the exact fork they may need in the $1000+ range as the specifications become more modern and proprietary to recent trends within the industry. If you have an older bike or don’t have a large budget to upgrade your suspension, the chances are you looking at or below the $500 range is pretty high. RockShox basically rules the market with options like their Recon RL, Recon Silver TK, 30 Silver TK, 30 Gold RL, and 35 Gold RL. BUT two competitors hold ground with Marzocchi’s Bomber Z2 MTB fork and Maniours Markhor Fork. So whether you need rim brake mounts or disc brake mounts, tapered or straight steerer tubes, adjustable travel options, air or coil sprung, we go over just about every option you should take into consideration when trying to upgrade the suspension on your mountain bike if you are under that $500 budget.
