The fork blades also have a special curve in the rear section to improve handling comfort.
Lightweight tapered blades and increased tyre clearance (28mm) offer a superior aerodynamic yet well-balanced ride. The special CNC integrated shim reduces vibrations and unnecessary stress on the frame.
Optimal stability and powerful braking are supplied through the ability to host up to 180mm rotors and a tapered 1 1/2” steerer.
The Futura Cross fork can mount up to 47mm tyres on 700c wheels, but more interesting is the option of mounting 27.5'' wheels with a 2.1'' tyre.
Last but not least, the innovative Multi-Rake system provides frame designers with more freedom to design when it comes to geometry and trail, and an adjustable set-up based on use and choice of tires ensures riders will find the perfect fit.
Twinned with the capability of mounting 160mm disc rotors and an 1.5” oversized steerer to maximise stiffness, the Futura Disc ensures an unbeatable performance.
Optimal stability and powerful braking are supplied through the ability to host up to 160mm rotors and a tapered 1 1/4” steerer.
Oversized clearance allows knobbly tyres up to 40mm whilst integrated hidden eyelets enable the use of fenders (35mm tyre max).
The progressive curve of the fork blades absorbs vibrations and guarantee great handling stability in extreme conditions.
The straight blades are laminated using T700 unidirectional carbon fiber. The 1.5" forged aluminium head is CNC machined and presents inside the hole for assembling the front brake (for use without the brake the hole is closed by the cap that can be easily removed using drill).
The 35mm rake together with the significant section of the blades makes this fork highly responsive and fast, perfect for the sprint and sudden changes of direction.
The fork column steerer diameter is 1 1/8" and dropouts are forged in aluminium 6061 T6. The straight shape of the fork blades increases the stiffness of the fork and gives a better overall driving precision to the bike.
