Manitou Prep M Grease Applicator Gun
Grease gun, "Microlube gun" without grease, for Manitou Microlube forks. The major benefits of the Microlube system are that it is lightweight and effective. Only a small quantity of grease is needed to properly lubricate the fork, and the fitting for injecting grease puts it just where it needs to be. Other lubrication systems, like open bath for instance, can be very effective, but are intrinsically very heavy because of the quantity of oil needed to function properly. Another benefit is that the lubricant (Prep M) for Microlube is designed specifically for lubricating.
