CANNONDALE suspension fork 29 "Lefty Ocho aluminum | 100 mm
The Lefty Ocho. Simply the most advanced and supple XC fork with sensitive response ever built by Cannondale. Built for challenges. Built for victories. Built for anyone who believes in their success.
The incredibly supple cushioning is created by the most frictionless fork construction ever developed. Precision resulting from rigidity designed for maximum control.
With only one fork bridge and only one fork leg, the entire material concentrates where it is needed to make the fork sturdy and stiff. That's how one of the lightest forks in the world is made - 250 grams lighter than the previous Lefty. With less unsprung mass than conventional forks, it has better cushioning and suspension performance. The tapered steerer provides lighter weight and full compatibility with many frames. A fork bridge is everything you need.
Float over the bumps. Overcome the obstacles on the ground that would lift you over the handlebars. Get you where you want to go. In terms of suppleness, the Ocho leads all rankings. Less frictional bushings and seals than any other fork. The sleek new Chamber Damper and the evolution of the revolutionary needle bearing design of the Lefty - Delta Cage. All this makes for one of the smoothest forks ever built. No jerking, no shaking or hesitation, no matter how hard you ask them. Only pure and supple responsiveness for ultimate control on the trail.
However, rigidity, like many other qualities, is a double-edged sword: Too soft and you get a fork that does not lead you to where you want to go. Too stiff or stiff in the wrong places and the suspension strikes and bounces instead of hovering and gliding. The unique construction of the Ocho with only one clevis and triangle in the triangle leg provide engineers with unprecedented possibilities to perfectly match the rigidity of the fork. Stiffness to move forward and to slide so you always stay in flow.

The newly developed and self-venting high-flow damper with heat compensation and externally adjustable tension and compression provides smooth performance and shock-free damping in all conditions.
Externally adjustable pressure level
The easy-to-reach knob offers six clicks for perfect adjustment of compression
Sidecar air valve
Easily accessible to adjust your setup at any time in seconds.
Simple and reliably functioning lockout with operation via Bowden cable.
The needle bearings on three sides inside the standpipe secure the dip tube against twisting and thus give you an incredible steering precision.
StopLock brake socket
The self-adjusting brake base with PM standard can be disassembled with a 180 ° turn of a 5 mm Allen key and a push of a button. So nothing stands in the way of a quick and easy wheel removal.
Protects the lower leg and leads your brake line clean and without rattling upwards.
NOTE: there is no lockout lever included with the Lefty Ocho. But since the fork works according to the push to unlock principle, it is absolutely necessary. Recommended is the OneLoc lever from Rock Shox or a comparable with 10 mm train access path. Please choose from the dropdown menu if you want to buy the Ocho without lockout lever or with a OneLoc lever at a special price.
