CANNONDALE suspension fork 29 "Lefty Ocho Carbon | 100 mm Remote 2021
The Lefty Ocho. Quite simply, the most advanced, smoothest responsive XC fork that Cannondale has ever built. Built for challenges. Built for victory. Built for everyone who believes in their success.
The incredibly smooth damping is created by the lowest-friction fork construction ever developed. Precision that comes from stiffness designed for maximum control.
With just one fork bridge and only one fork leg, all of the material is concentrated where it is needed to make the fork robust and stiff. The result is one of the lightest suspension forks in the world - 250 grams lighter than the previous Lefty. With less unsprung mass than conventional forks, it has better damping and suspension behavior. The tapered steerer tube ensures lower weight and extensive compatibility with many frames. A fork bridge is all you need.
Float over the bumps. Overcome the obstacles on the ground that would lift you over the handlebars. Take you where you want to go. In terms of suppleness, the Ocho leads all the rankings. Less friction-generating bushings and seals than any other fork. The sleek new chamber damper and the advancement of the revolutionary needle bearing construction of the Lefty - Delta Cage. All of this adds up to one of the smoothest forks ever made. No jerking, no trembling or hesitation, no matter how hard you challenge them. Just pure and smooth response for ultimate control on the trail.
However, like many other properties, rigidity is a double-edged sword: Too soft and you get a fork that won't take you where you want to go. Too stiff or stiff in the wrong places and the landing gear will bounce and jump instead of hovering and gliding. The unique construction of the Ocho with only one fork head and the triangle in triangle fork leg give the engineers unprecedented possibilities to perfectly adjust the stiffness of the fork. Stiffness to move forward and to glide so that you always stay in the flow.
OppO air spring
A robust air suspension system with a self-adjusting negative spring. Perfectly balanced. No mechanical parts - a new level of reliability.
The newly developed and self-venting high-flow damper with heat compensation and externally adjustable tension and compression level delivers smooth performance and jolt-free damping under all conditions.
Externally adjustable pressure level
The easy-to-reach rotary knob offers six clicks for perfect adjustment of the pressure level
SideCar air valve
Easily accessible to adjust your setup at any time in seconds.
Simply constructed and reliably functioning lockout with an actuation via Bowden cable.
The needle bearings on three sides inside the standpipe secure the immersion tube against twisting and thus give you incredible steering precision.
StopLock brake sockets
The self-adjusting brake base with PM 160 mm standard can be removed with a 180 ° turn of the quick release. Nothing stands in the way of quick and easy wheel removal.
Protects the lower fork leg and guides your brake line cleanly and without rattling upwards. A SAG indicator is printed on the inside so that you can adjust your setup perfectly.
If you want to install the Ocho in a Cannondale FSI up to MY 2019 or a Scalpel with an OPI frame, you need the adapter 42199 and a fully integrated headset of your choice such as 27276 from our shop.
