If you make brakes, you know they’ve gotta end up on something. So, TRP decided to start making their own carbon forks to create a more tightly integrated system. We suspect that means ideal cable routing, but Road.cc has one in for a detailed first look and gave us a few tidbits to share with you.
They first spotted it at the Milton Keynes UCI cyclocross World Cup race, so it’s likely aimed more at the big clearance, off road racing crowd than the pavement pounders. Check out a few details below…
The obvious features are a tapered headtube, thru axle and internal cable routing. Since TRP only makes cable actuated units, the headaches of running a hydraulic hose through the left leg won’t be a factor if you’re matching labels. The entry and exit ports are pretty clean and very well placed in our opinion.
A few other key specs are 397mm axle to crown, 700x40c tire clearance and a claimed weight of 450g. Check out Road.cc’s hands-on coverage for plenty more pics and details. We’ve reached out to TRP and should hear back shortly after the holidays.
