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.

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.

How does the compensation work with the disc brake? You have to adjust them according to the flip-chip setting… …don’t you? Are there extra postmount spacers or something like that?
And when I adjust to 52mm I have less caster. Isn’t then the handling more nervous instead of more stable?

Is there a reason you have to remove the spacers completely in 52mm offset? Looks like you’d want to store the spacers after the caliper so you can easily flip the switch. Then the bolt sizes could stay consistent between rotor sizes.

Soooo tired of Enve asking people to pay what they’re charging. This isn’t golf, and I’m not a dentist. Would that I could pay for American products made in decent working conditions that didn’t cost me that much. Because honestly, that pricing structure is straight out of a Beckett play–absurd and really difficult to understand.

While Enve wheels are made state side, forks and other components are outsourced to Asia.

Makes me want to get a chameleon and do this. For price gripe comments . . Whisky has a similar offering for $100 less – with no flip chip, no accessory mounts and no integrated fender. . . so i don’t this this is priced out of bounds.

Yeah, you can direct from china for $150 though, which is a big gap, certainly the direct rims I’ve had, have been amazing, cut out branding and marketing, distribution and thing get less expensive pretty quickly…

Is ENVE still a thing with their parent company going belly up?
