Optimize your driving without emptying your wallet, with our forks at reduced prices.

Bicycle forks play a vital role in the rider's ride, stability and comfort by absorbing shock, providing precise steering and supporting the weight of the rider and the bike. Here is a description of their function, their characteristics, the standards and the different types of bicycle forks:

Function :

1. Shock absorption:

The forks absorb shock and vibration from the road or trail surface, providing increased comfort to the rider.

2. Management:

They allow precise and controlled steering of the bike, which is essential for maintaining stability and maneuverability.

3. Support:

The forks support the weight of the rider and the bicycle, as well as the forces exerted during acceleration, braking and cornering.

Features :

1. Material:

Forks can be made from steel, aluminum, carbon, or a combination of these materials. Each material has its own advantages in terms of weight, stiffness, comfort and durability.

2. Travel:

Travel refers to the maximum compression distance that the fork can absorb. Mountain bike forks generally have more travel than road bike forks, making them suitable for more aggressive use on rough terrain.

3. Suspension type:

Forks can be rigid (no suspension), spring (steel or air spring) or hydraulically suspended. Each suspension type offers different levels of comfort and control.

4. Wheel Compatibility:

Forks are designed to fit specific wheel sizes, like 26-inch wheels for mountain bikes or 700c wheels for road bikes.

Standards:

1. Swivel diameter:

The diameter of the fork steerer tube must match the diameter of the frame's head tube to ensure proper fitment.

2. Brake mounting type:

The forks can be equipped with either disc brake or rim brake mounts, depending on rider preference and bike type.

Different types of bicycle forks:

1. Rigid forks:

Without suspension, mainly used on road bikes, gravel bikes and some city bikes.

2. Suspension forks:

Found on mountain bikes, offering travel to absorb shock on uneven terrain.

3. Specific forks:

Certain specific disciplines such as BMX, cyclocross, trials cycling, etc., may require forks with particular characteristics adapted to their practice.

In summary, bicycle forks play a crucial role in the rider's performance, comfort and safety. With different characteristics such as material, travel and suspension type, as well as manufacturing standards, they are suitable for different types of bikes and cycling disciplines.
