Our Mini/Jr fork is not as light as the alternative material forks out there. But we believe we're pushing the limit while still producing a safe fork for BMX Racing. We would rather be an ounce or two heavier and know that the forks will hold up to anything than have an ultra-light fork with the looming risk of failure.
They are full seamless post-weld heat treated 4130 cro-mo.
The 20" version weighs in at 16.5 ounces on our UPS calibrated scale (weight subject to variance due to the amount of Powder coat or weld rod used)
The Dropouts on our Mini/Jr forks are thinner than those found on other Carbon or Aluminum forks. With certain hub models, you'll need to use additional axle washers to make up the difference.
Dropouts are made from 1/8" laser cut cro-mo that's post-weld heat treated. An extra step to ensure these dropouts are ultra-strong!
Currently available in 20" and new 24" versions.
( Note even though it is a 1" steer tube, we recommend the use of a 1 1/8" star nut or the Speedline Expander Wedge for your compression device as the heat-treated cro-mo is super tough, and the 1" star nut will slip out )
