Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Montée sans problème pour remplacer la fourche droite acier de mon vieux DKT Triban Road 5. Gain de poids notable, absorbe mieux les chocs et me permet de m'affranchir du frein à disque inopérant.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous I got these to replace the stock forks on my cyclo cross bike. I've got mixed feelings about them as they major good point is also the cause of the bad point.
First the good:
Riding off road with these is like having suspension. Really smooths out the trail (within reason). Also good on the current pot-hole ridden roads.
Now the bad:
When riding on the road, moderate to firm braking causes a very unnerving stutter. If you're going in a straight line and in the dry then this isn't much of a problem but in the wet and/or on corners the tyre actually bounces on the tarmac. (braking off road gets the same issue but is less of a problem)
If you regularly need to stop quickly (as I do commuting in hilly Sheffield) then these forks are probably not for you. For touring or real x'ing then they would be a good, budget choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Everything you need in a basic fork. Light enough, sturdy and inexpensive. If I get the 'cross bug I'll splash out on carbon but this is plenty good enough for now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Very soft and comfortable. Stable in high speeds also.
But then braking hard, the fork flexes and that results in vibrations than reduces the braking power and control. You can actually see how the fork bends while braking hard (it bends several centimeters).
But it's damn cheap, so I guess that you get wath you pay for. If you want top performance, you need to pay more, simple as that. I will replace my fork for the next season...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous I bought this fork with my cyclocrossframe Kinesis crosslight pro 4. I ride to my work on dirtroads and better roads mixed. The fork is light and it swallows bad conditions and keeps the bike calm. I am surprised how good the comfort is.If you brake extremly it can be feeling a bit soft, but it doesn't bother me. I'm very satisfied

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous I've had these forks on my commuter for 2.5 years now and nothing can touch them for solid reliability. I recently hit a car (turning across my path) at approx. 25mph. The forks are completely undamaged.
I don't find them too flexible at all. They can handle V brake power without any problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous I fitted this fork on my 7500 Trek after finding the suspension fork unnecessary and too heavy for touring. I have done several overseas and local tours since fitting the fork and it has been first class; very tough and light. Thanks guys.
