Running Forks - this is a small but successful manufacturers from Iceland, which produced the probably lightest forks in the world! Under the use of carbon and glass fibers running Forks was a sensational 900g, with 30mm travel press the weight. From the Icelandic translates as orienta- Journal what a cover makes the spring system. 12 leaf springs made of a glass fiber composite absorb shocks from the ground. By fork blades from Carbon fork generates a good stiffness. The Grit is one of the few forks for Gravel or cyclocross use. Small to medium blows Schwalbeed sensitive and reliable.
The leaf springs are made of a fiberglass composite. This is produced by a military standard. Thus, the leaf springs are flexible only in the direction of the stroke.
From the fork 30 mm travel are provided. The characteristic is thereby progressively.
With no moving parts, the corresponding maintenance disappears. The fork is thus maintenance-free.
