BRIGHT RACING SHOCKS suspension fork F929-E xCO 29" BOOST
Regardless of whether you are at the start of a cross country or a marathon, in the end you only want one thing: to be the first to reach the finish line.
With the F929-E xCO you come a step closer to this wish. Thanks to full control, you climb up the mountain to attack again on the next descent to gain valuable seconds. It's all possible with the Bright F929-E xCO. The F929-E is a weapon when it comes to winning the battle for the podium.
The fork is the result of a long development phase. Countless computer simulations, prototypes and test drives were necessary in order to finally be able to offer a product that need fear no comparison. Thanks to the upside-down design, the fork saves a lot of unsprung mass, which ultimately benefits sensitive response and perfect traction. In order not to have to accept any disadvantages in terms of rigidity, the slider tubes are very thick at 35 mm, lapped with high precision and guided by specially arranged sliding bushes. In connection with the dropouts, which are suitable for the use of torque caps with a diameter of 31 mm, all this ensures optimum lateral rigidity and steering precision of the fork. This construction, which is unusual for an MTB fork, is more expensive and complex to produce, but will put a smile on your face with every ride. In fact, the type of construction is more in line with a motorcycle fork than an MTB fork.
The carbon standpipes also contribute to the rigidity without unnecessarily burdening the scales. A filigree CNC-milled crown made of 7075-T651 aluminum is used at the upper end of the fork. A 70 mm thick block of raw material weighing 2.7 kg is transformed into a 310 g work of art on modern CNC machines.
The individual parts are assembled with a lot of manual work. The close quality control ensures that you always get a perfectly functioning fork for your bike.
ACAD is a highly efficient cartridge that offers you an excellent function. The responsive cushioning is specifically designed to manage the anti-cavitation effect, one of the biggest limitations of modern cushioning. This specially designed solution guarantees quick reactivity under high loads and cushioning that always works perfectly.
30 years of experience in the field of chassis technology are noticeable in the CHPC air spring. First and foremost, it must have a very high progression at the end of the suspension travel and be responsive. If you ride at the limit, your fork has to make the best possible use of the available travel. The air spring was designed and developed with precisely this goal in mind. Another special feature of the air spring is the fact that it is run with very little sag.
AMA Design (Advanced Mechanical Architecture)
The special construction allows maximum rigidity and guarantees perfect function.
The Sensitive Lockout is a technology specially developed by Bright. Thanks to the special tuning, your compression level is protected under high loads without having to open the lockout.
A special arrangement of the bushings, which has been tried and tested in motocross for years and, in conjunction with the milled fork crown and the carbon stanchions, creates an extremely high torsional rigidity of the fork. In addition, the LAGS system also guarantees smooth spring behavior with lateral loads, such as those that occur when driving over rocks or roots.
