Enduro’s new flangeless fork seals form the wiper and seal into one piece, and they removed the lipped flange on the outside edge so that it’ll sit deeper into the fork and stay put. The black wiper is a firmer than stock urethane to hold up better and keep more crud out, giving you the option to use a lube-soaked foam ring in its cavity or not. The lower blue-ish section is infused with a special friction reducing polymer to keep everything sliding ultra smooth without letting oil escape the fork’s internals.
They’ll be available for 32mm and 34mm stanchion forks from Fox and Rockshox, with 36 and 40 coming soon, along with 35mm for Rockshox. Retail is $30.
Incremental gains being the pros’ secret no more, Enduro is taking their seal technology and applying it to others’ parts to reduce friction in areas beyond the bearings. DT Swiss hubs are literally everywhere, so that was a good place to start. Enduro’s rep says the stock seal between the freehub body and hub body can feel a little tight once it’s all pressed together and installed in the bike. So, they made one with a silicone gasket that’s much slicker. Works on DT 180/240/350 hubs, standard and XD freehubs. $10, available by end of year.
Their new Shimano BB tool fits the latest versions of both Ultegra/105 and Dura-Ace with different sizes on either side. For $80, it gives you a much more secure hold of the BB shell.
