OPENCYCLE Fork U-Turn Gravel fork
The right fork for the OPENCYCLE UPPER and New UP frame, of course in the right color.
For the light UPPER and New Up Gravel frames, OPENCYCLE has developed a new fork that does not require adapters for flat-mount calipers. So you can omit the supplied standard adapter for your Shimano or SRAM Flat Mount brakes and screw them directly onto the fork. This saves weight and increases the rigidity of the braking system.
OPEN realizes this by using the fork provided for 160 mm brake discs using the same fastening screws that are also intended for the rear wheel brake. The visible screw heads on the front of the fork end are an expression of the technically superior design and are therefore clearly visible. An internal cable routing in the fork ensures a clean look at the front and protects the sensitive brake line from damage. At the same time, air resistance is reduced.
At only 396 grams, it is the lightest fork that is suitable for GravelPlus tires. To save even more weight, it is equipped as standard with an extremely light 12 mm carbon-Ti custom axle .
