ENVE’s new disc brake road fork updates to the 12mm thru axle and flat mount brake standards, and opens up to make room for 32mm tires.
They went away from the externally routed brake hose and clip for a cleaner, more streamlined appearance that also lines things up better for the switch to flat mount brakes. Internal channels guide the brake hose directly thru the fork for easy installs. Axle to crown grew 3mm to 370mm, which was necessary to increase tire clearance capacity even though the crown got thinner. The legs are more shapely, a little deeper at the top so they could be narrower (more arero) and makes them a bit stiffer. More details and lots of pretty bikes below…
- 1-1/8″ to 1-1/4″ taper only
- 43 and 50 mm rakes
November ship date on the regular 12mm thru axle version. It’ll also be available with the new Mavic Speed Release thru axle system, which is one of the best quick release thru axles we’ve seen yet.
Compared to the original (left), the new version is sleeker with more shapely legs.
The Speedvagen’s custom paint made it look even better, as did the other beautiful custom bikes in their booth.
Fifty One is a newer brand and didn’t use the new disc fork, but still worth including. Look for more on this brand soon.
Peaty’s cow bike wasn’t even a road bike, but worth a look if only for the interesting little details.
