Trust Performance certainly isn’t the first brand to dive into linkage suspension forks, but they are definitely the brand that has made the biggest impact in terms of visibility and acceptance. They’re far from being accepted by the masses, but they’ve stuck around long enough to pique the interest of more and more riders. Over the last few months we’ve been riding the Trust Shout, the brand’s 178mm long-travel fork, and it’s made quite an impression on our testers. We reviewed their initial fork, the Message a while back, it’s a 130mm trail fork and Shoutis happy to add to their lineup with this bruiser of a fork.
We were able to put the Shout on a few bikes during our test period, including the new Specialized Enduro and a Norco Range VLT eMTB and are happy to share our findings, both good and bad.
