Whisky Parts Co just introduced a new rigid fork, and it could be the perfect option for a number of different builds. Called the No.9 MTN Boost LT, the carbon fork certainly looks like a mountain bike fork in terms of spec, but it could be right at home on a fat tire gravel bike, drop bar mountain bike, or your favorite rigid single speed.
Suspension corrected for 120-130mm suspension forks, the LT has a 500mm fork length and a 51mm rake. Only offered in a tapered 1 1/2″ to 1 1/8″ steerer, the fork uses a full carbon construction.
Tire clearance is fairly massive with room for a full 29 x 3.0″ or a 27.5 x 3.0″.
As the name implies, the fork uses Boost 110 x 15mm spacing and includes a light weight bolt-on axle. A standard post mount disc brake fitting is used with a 180mm maximum size for the front rotor. While the fork doesn’t have fender mounts, it does have three-pack mounts on each leg, and internal dynamo routing with external brake hose routing.
Weighing in at 710g, the fork carries a 240lb max weight limit, and will sell for $549.99.
