The FL Carbon 29er fork from Syncros stands out with its 100% carbon construction and monocoque crown. Veering away from the idea of a shorter fork and more offset, the FL Carbon 29er has 38mm offset with a 485mm axle to crown measurement.
S. Coffey, marketing director for Syncros ellaborates on the fork’s design, “We have dabbled with various offsets, lengths and frames with mixed results. In our ride testing we found that a 480mm/38mm offset obviously works fine on ubiquitous “old school” geometry, and despite the math, still works really well on “new school” bikes.”
Additional details for the new carbon fork are full carbon dropouts and disc only brakes. It has 34mm blades and a maximum rotor size of 203mm.
The Syncros FL Carbon 29er fork has a round cross section, legs, steerer, crown and dropouts. It has a tire clearance of 90mm to accommodate 2.5″ tires. Weight is at 580g with no rider weight limit. It is available in a matte black finish with red-white decals. MSRP is $549.95. Via Twenty Nine Inches
