The ENVE Mountain Fork gets Boost 15x110mm axle spacing for 2020, plus six accessory mounts for racks or bottle cages. The rigid carbon fork, first released in 2014 retains its rake adjust flip-chip for tuning bike handling. In addition to getting wider at the drops, the fork gets a longer axle-to-crown, maintaining clearance for 29″ x 3″ tires with fender. We take a quick look at ENVE’s new Boost fork.
ENVE Mountain Fork
Over its non-boost predecessor, the new ENVE Mountain Fork gains a claimed 8g, bringing it to 719g without clasps. That’s with the wider spacing and a longer axle-to-crown with suspension correction for 120mm. The axle-to-crown now sits at 490mm in the 44mm rake, and 492mm in the 52mm rake.
Previously limited to XC and Trail riding, the new Mountain Fork can now enter the bikepacking arena with six accessory mountains for bottle cages and racks.
The new ENVE Fork also gets an integrated but removable fender to keep the puddle-splash off your face.
The ENVE Mountain Fork retains its geometry adjust flip-chip at the drop outs. This means riders can tune the fork rake from 44mm to 51mm. To liven up the bike’s handling, switch to 44mm rake. Or, for a more stable ride feel on steep terrain, go for the 52mm setting. To compensate for the difference in brake rotor position, the different rake positions require specific brake spacer configurations shown above.
While many changes have been made to ENVE’s flagship rigid mountain bike fork, its construction still utilizes a one-piece construction from the top of the steer tube to the bottom of the drop-outs. And, it maintains the same strength to weight needed for attacking the trail both uphill and down.
