Spy Shot! Prototype ENVE Carbon Rigid 29er Mountain Bike Fork (UPDATED!)
This ENVE rigid carbon mountain bike fork prototype shows off a big new item for the Ogden, UT, based manufacturer.
Details are sparse, including pricing or production date, and this one is only a prototype. The thru axle design uses a flippable insert that lets you adjust the rake between 43mm and 52mm.
There’s a semi-integrated mud fender that’ll clip onto the arms in the same way their current disc brake hose clips work, and it builds in the disc cable routing as well.
It’s suspension corrected and will only come with a 1.5″ tapered steerer only.
UPDATE: ENVE’s rep told us it’ll even fit a 29+ tire with the fender in place and that it’ll be at least as light as the lightest rigid fork on the market now.
Lots more pics below!
Some features and deigns may change, there’s no official word on this yet. Stay tuned!
