Esker Chooses Cerakote For Their Limited Edition Japhy x MRP 4130 Trail Hardtail

Esker Chooses Cerakote For Their Limited Edition Japhy x MRP 4130 Trail Hardtail

This is an article published by BikeRumor! August 21, 2023 and written by Cory Benson. Esker Cycles pairs up with MRP for a small batch purple run of the steel Japhy trail hardtail to match MRP’s limited edition 120mm ShredKote (Cerakote) Raven fork. Fit for Thanos, this limited edition frame and fork get ceramic coated in “Wild Purple” Cerakote, a lighter and more durable matte finish than conventional paint, prosing to keep this trail-shredding hardtail as fresh as grape soda for many years to come… Esker Cycles’ collaboration with MRP then, is a limited run of Japhy frames to match MRP “ShredKote” forks in Wild Purple. That is to say, the quad-butted & tapered frame 4130 chromoly frame gets the exact same lighter, more impact-resistant Cerakote ceramic finish as the fork. Want to learn more about the Esker Japhy 29er? It just got an UDH upgrade a couple of weeks ago. But it’s otherwise the same lovely slack 29+ trail hardtail that Esker introduced a few years back. MRP actually offers 18 custom Cerakote colors in their Custom Forks program, so Esker decided to get on the fun in their favorite Wild Purple. Interestingly, the MRP custom program usually doesn’t include the more burly Raven (usually it’s only Ribbons & Baxters). But Esker preferred the slightly heavier, more adjustable (and adjustable to longer travel) Raven with its bigger tire clearance, set up with 120mm of travel. The limited edition Wild Purple Esker X MRP Japhy is available in two different build specs. What’s more, each gets the same Cerakote purple frame, in five sizes (S-XXL), and spec’d with the matching ShredKote 120mm MRP Raven fork.
