Looking to ditch your suspension fork? Or maybe you are already riding rigid but are looking for something to work with current hub standards? Whatever the reason, Niner is back with a rigid steel fork and it should play well with a number of current mountain bikes.
Suspension corrected for a 29″ 100mm suspension fork, the Niner steel fork measures 490mm from the axle to crown with a 51mm offset. Built from tapered and butted chromoly tubing with a full ED black coating to protect against rust, the fork runs a 1 1/8″ to 1 1/2″ tapered steerer. Naturally, it’s meant for 29″ wheels, or 27+ should fit as well.
Even on a rigid fork, Boost 110 spacing is important so that you can swap your Boost wheels back and forth from your suspension fork. The fork has a tooled 15mm axle which is included, and the brake mount is post mount with a 180mm rotor max. Since this will probably be a popular option for bike packing/adventure rigs, the fork has bottle cage/rack mounts on the legs to carry up to 45 lbs of additional equipment. Weighing in at 3.37 lbs (1.53kg) without the axle, the forks will sell for $179 in black only.
