Years in the making, the Trust Message is the beginning of a multi-link front suspension design from Trust Performance. The Trust Message mountain bike front suspension fork is a mind-blowing reset of what you think a front suspension should do; it’s something you feel the instant you start riding. If we tell you how good we think the Message is, you probably won’t believe us. For us, it’s simple. It’s a lack of chatter, more traction in corners, and predictable steering. It’s a level of small bump compliance that’s usually reserved for elite athletes with world-class, suspension-sponsored race support. It’s a stability under braking that’s usually only possible with jackhammer-hard compression settings.

By employing a trailing multi-link design, the Trust Message fork allows the front of the bike to realize the benefits the rear has enjoyed for years — an easy actuation feel early in the stroke and progressive ramp through the mid-stroke. The result: ground-hugging traction, increased confidence when pushing through berms and more bottom-out resistance at the end of the travel to handle large impacts and botched landings. Additionally, our linkage design means that the axle path on the Message isn’t forced to travel in-line with the steering axis. Instead, it counteracts the natural steering angle change with a corresponding adjustment in offset. The Message maintains caster through the range of travel, giving you predictable handling in a wider variety of trail conditions.

Our in-house designed twin-tube, thru-shaft damper is securely housed inside a stiff carbon chassis. The chassis design provides unique stiffness and significantly isolates deflection to the linkage portion of the system, virtually eliminating stiction in the damper. A three-way mode adjust provides on-the-fly adjustments to control compression performance. The most notable difference about the Message is its ability to accept multiple 29” and 27.5” disc brake mountain bikes. Because the Message's contour travel and static structure is more versatile than telescopic travel, one product is suitable for a wider range of axle-to-crown lengths and travels. While the Trust Message mtb suspension fork performs best on 29" and 27.5"+ designed for 110mm to 130mm of travel and 27.5” bikes designed for 130mm to 140mm of travel, you’ll find you can push the limits in either direction with surprising success.
