Description:The XC 480 was created to compensate for the growing amount of travel in 29er mountain bikes. At 480mm, this fork will correct for travel of up to ~100mm which can eliminate the head tube angle steepening that is present with most rigid fork conversions. This fork tips the scales at a very respectable 570g uncut. |
This fork has full carbon dropouts, which means that it can be very easy to crush the dropout lawyer tabs with an imprecise clamping of a quick release skewer, whether on a hub or on a roof-mounted rack. Be extremely careful when clamping anything to the dropouts, as damaged lawyer tabs through improper clamping are not warrantable.
