Lightweight upside-down fork for Fat Bikes. The travel adjustment of the Flame is infinitely possible and is done at the bottom of the fork.
The upside-down system is used in high quality motorcycle forks already for a long time. Advantages: At the high stress areas directly under the yoke are the stronger Holme, with 44 mm diameter, inner legs of an upside-down fork. The underlying dip tubes with 36 mm have a smaller diameter are not so heavily loaded. The increase in overall rigidity causes the fork works better in all conditions because the telescopically guided tubes have lower tension and deformations each other. A significantly higher breaking strength of the fork legs is also the consequence.
INFO: The special construction 142 mm is the fork only with a Tune Fat King in 15 x compatible.
For this purpose the hub must be removed the axle. This will be replaced by special end caps of German Answer and an accompanying floating axle, which has 17 mm in diameter. The system thus receives a greater rigidity.
