MXT Lucky System
The new MXT Lucky System (Lucky) is the newest advancement for WP forks. The Lucky system is the result of innovative engineering and a commitment to bring riders the best value in the suspension market. Major enhancements include:
MXT has made many improvements to the stock system by building on the existing strengths of WP forks. MXT continues to refine the WP products using solid in-house engineering based on multiple levels of race testing and collaboration with many seasoned tuners who encompass every riding style from motocross to off road. Attention was given to make the these forks “plush” while maintaining the control required to ride aggressively.
The Lucky forks exhibit better handlebar feel, steering response, and traction since they are lighter than stock. An increase in cartridge volume provides more control and support through the middle of the stroke. As an example, riders also 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. The Lucky also includes the proven Huck Valve, designed to increase volume while allowing for additional pressure transfer parallel to the system. 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.
Traditional stock bottoming control system is limited in that it can't manage multiple speeds or accelerations inside its 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 MXT Huck Valve has 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.
Prototypes were made, dyno tested, and put to the track for real world testing. After excellent results from a diverse group of riders on various terrains, the Lucky System entered production and is ready to ship today.
If you are mechanically inclined, you can choose to do the upgrade on your own, have your local tuner do the install, or we will be happy to do it as well.
