Running Forks - this is a small but successful manufacturers from Iceland, which produced the probably lightest suspension fork in the world! Under the use of carbon and glass fibers running Forks could push the weight to a sensational 950g. For a fork with 60 mm suspension travel that is an optimum. From the Icelandic translates as "running" Journal of 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. Running Forks aligns the fork clear from the Marathon 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 60 mm travel are provided. The characteristic is thereby progressively.
With no moving parts, the corresponding maintenance disappears. The fork is thus maintenance-free.
