Kinesis Maxlight XLT Forks

Totally updated and lightened, this fork is in a class of it’s own. The Maxlight XLT provides the ideal, lightweight alternative to suspension forks and is designed to work with 100mm suspension geometry frames. We have lightened the dropouts and steerer is now 7075 alloy, saving 160g over the original version. The unique crown design and 1 1/8” alloy steerer make this a very durable fork, the tapered legs tune out harshness and there are canti. bosses

Kinesis Maxlight XLT Forks Specification:

  • Steerer: Alloy, 1 1/8”, 300mm 
  • Wheel: 26"
  • Rake: 45mm
  • Weight: 880g
  • Crown Height: 437mm
  • Colour: Black
  • Wheel Size: 26"
  • Material: Alloy

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kinesis Maxlight XLT Forks отличная вилка Купил эту вилку с целью снижения веса велосипеда. До этого стоял дешёвый амортизатор. Боялся, что будет, как некоторые пишут, мозготряс. Оказалось совсем нет. В эксплуатации эта вилка достаточно комфортна. Может быть конечно это потому, что я в основном езжу по городу, а не по горам и лесным тропам, но тем не менее. Покупка полностью оправдала первоначальные ожидания - вес велосипеда снизился на 1,5 кг(старая вилка была просто чудовищно тяжёлая). Накат также стал гораздо лучше. Могу смело рекомендовать Kinesis Maxlight XLT Forks людям имеющим аналогичные требования. 01 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great forks Used these to replace some stock suntour suspension forks. Had someone fit them for me as i wasn't interested in cutting the excess tube down myself. I have disc brakes so the v brake posts were removed for me as well. apparently achieved just with spanners and elbow grease. These forks have saved about a kilo and a half in weight and handle supurbly. Much sharper steering and although you can feel the rigidity, they don't become unmanageble on rough track. Easy to fit a front mud guard to if you use the type that insert a block into the centre hole from below. They look well made as well. really happy with them. 18 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Прекрасный выбор для города и плоскача Легкая, стильная вилка. Правда, чисто эстетически не очень смотрится тонкий выход из рулевого стакана, что, впрочем, никак не отражается на качестве. С этой вилкой и достаточно жесткой рамой велосипед изумительно разгоняется за счет отличной передачи усилия педалирования. Само собой, вилка не предназначена для быстрого спуска по достаточно крутым грунтовым дорожкам, но в городском цикле, а также при поездках по относительно плоскому грунту - лучше не придумаешь. Ну, разве что карбоновый ригид. Надо учесть, что жесткая вилка, вообще говоря, требует привыкания и небольшого изменения стиля езды. 12 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Отличная, крепкая вилка за приемлемые деньги Купил недавно данную вилку, очень доволен, хоть и смотрится на первый взгляд не очень эстетично с MTB рамой, но функцию свою отрабатывает на все 100%. Поменял свою пружинно-масляную вилку на эту, в результате уменьшился вес велика на ~1,2 кг, в следствии чего улучшился накат и разгон, стала лучше маневренность. Для города самое то и не только...Рекомендую! 10 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ребятки, подскажите, насколько объемные покрышки сюда лезут ? Конкретно интересует - Холи Роллеры 26*2,4. Спасибо. 26*2,4 street tyres fits with this fork ? Thanks. 07 July 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by good fork Вес (шток не обрезан) ~ 880 гр. Внешний вид отличный. К сожалению на вилке не предусмотрены углубления для снятия шайбы, упирающейся в подшипник. Для удобства можно купить к ней якорь, (устанавливается внутри штока вилки) чтобы не мучится с изъятием якоря из старой вилки. В остальном все хорошо. Задумался над приобретением циклокросс рамы от кинезис. 04 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Езжу практически только по шоссе, поэтому эта вилка стала для меня находкой. Велосипед стал гораздо более накатистым. На спусках, при нормальном давлении в шинах "укатываюсь" от всех одноклассных велосипедов с амо-вилками. И резко разгонятся стало намного легче. Вес тоже порадовал - 880 гр. против 2500гр. старой вилки разница ощутимая. Всем кто хочет сделать свой MTB более пригодным для езды по шоссе рекомендую эту штуку. По крайней мере, это лучшее что я сумел найти из не карбоновых вилок. И с эстетической стороны привлекательная. Качество отличное. 22 June 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by nice keeps my bike nice & light there not bad on hard Terrain wished they would flex a little bit more but for the money I have spent I can not complain 19 March 2012

I'm looking to replace an RST Gila, and on RST's website they state that the maximum disc diameter the Gila can accommodate is 160mm. I was hoping to upgrade to Avid BB7s with 180mm rotors, and was wondering if that would be possible with this fork?

Answer: 
We cannot find a manufacturer restriction for the size of rotor that can be fitted to these forks, however I would recommend that you do not exceed 160mm.

Answers

Answer: 
To ensure this fork will be ok for your bike you will need to measure you Suntour's axle to crown height.

The Kinesis has an axle to crown of 437mm. You measure the axle to crown by measuring directly from the center of the wheel axle to the center of the fork crown.

If this measurement is similar to the Kinesis you will be able to use the fork.

Answer: 
The drop in the front fork can have an affect on the overall handling of the bike and put additional pressure on the frame. We would suggest you first contact the frame/bikes manufacture to first ensure the drop will be OK.

In regards to the steerer, it is standard practice to have the steerer cut to length during installation. This will have to be done with the new Kinesis fork.
