Why Linkage Suspension?

Traction, Stability, and Control. It’s simple. Trust’s linkage virtually eliminates stiction and provides a dynamic wheel path and variable fork offset -- all while gobbling up bumps and providing what matters most in a ride...confidence and dirt-filled grins.

Traction

Instead of forcing your wheel into a linear path, Trust’s linkage matches its wheel path with the direction of bump forces with little to no stiction. The result is immediately clear: unparalleled traction.

Stability

Stability

When pushing into corners and charging through rough terrain, our linkage suspension actually provides more stability while maintaining your bike’s intended geometry through travel. Wondering how it does this magic voodoo? It’s all about dynamic offset.

Control

Control

You can’t explain exactly why, but you notice a change in your riding. Your friends notice it, too. You’re cornering more aggressively, you’re carrying more speed everywhere, you’re hitting big drops and you’re finally boosting that double you’ve been avoiding. Your bike just feels … better. More confidence-inspiring. More controlled. Welcome to the new world of wide open.

I was in more control and riding faster than ever,

which doesn't make a whole lot of sense until you remind yourself that geometry and handling are the real keys to speed and control, not gooey suspension that turns the ground into your personal safe space.

It's the most planted ride I've ever felt on the front of a bike,

the tracking and bump absorption are far beyond what you'd expect from just 130mm of travel.

It's definitely different. And You jump on a fork that is that stout feeling and it immediately breeds confidence

where you want to ride aggressively - you want to bash into stuff.

Without a doubt, the Message performs like no other fork I’ve ridden

Overall, I simply found myself going faster than I expected, especially through corners and on loose terrain, and with far more confidence to boot.
