    DT Swiss shock and Manitou fork weights

    For yah weight weenies out there here are some specs on the usual shocks and forks spec'ed with the Mojo and Mojo SL:

    DT Swiss Carbon: 193.1g
    Fox RP23: 263.8g

    Fox RL140 (cut): 1742.5
    Manitou MRD 130 (cut): 1494.6
    Manitou MRD 130 (uncut): 1521.8

    So currently running at 23.8 lbs on my Mojo.

    I am part way through a long term test review for MTBR.com as a ProReviewer on the Mojo, I tried to get the SL but due to the current scarcity of the SL frameset, Ibis was not able to comply with my request, so they did the next best thing by getting me a DT Swiss Carbon and a Manitou Minute MRD, thanks Hans! Outside of the weight difference the Mojo SL and Mojo should ride the same.

    Updates to follow!

    Just curiously, what size frame do those frame weight figures correspond to?

    So weight difference between the SL and "normal" mojo frame is 2475g - 2232g (my Medium SL w. DT) is 243 grams.

    Yeah, sort of. If you remove all the hardwares on the SL and Mojo and compare both frames without the hardwares, the weight between UHM and HM carbons aint much, but because the SL has new paint material and save a couple of grams (WW will consider this as selling point) its worth it .
