A carbon fork on a fully rigid bike may not give you plush suspension, but itll dampenTheTrail chatter and save you a lot of weight. Carbon monocoque fork with alloy steerer Full carbon dropouts Compatible with disc brake only (full carbon brakeTab) Preserves front end geometry of a 80mm fork
Strengths: Look really nice, 3k carbon look with wet black aluminum detail.
Weaknesses: Weak 51 mm disc brake holes are full carbon with very small tolerances and will break off. Not available in a Post-mount. 9mm qr only, no 15 mm option. Customer service and warranty are not in existence, only the retailer where you purchase can authorize repairs.
Don't buy from a distant or online retailer or you'll be out of luck on any warranty. Don't buy if you want any customer service. Don't buy if you expect Ritchey to stand behind their product. Or just don't buy.
Strengths: Very well made, high quality construction. Fork legs are 1 piece lay ups so the disk tabs and dropouts are integral to legs v.s. epoxied on caps that some others use. They are very compliant but not with any creepy fore-aft flex. No weight limit was also a plus. I'm 6' 2" and 235 lbs and have never had a concern after the first couple of minutes on them. They will make your bike happy!
Weaknesses: I haven't found any yet...great forks for XC trailing.
Great forks, good value, look great, work great...buy some.
