Fit bike co Blade 2 fork
New updated Blade forks from Fit.
Third version of the popular Blade fork. Fits goal was to design and produce an extremely strong fork with plenty of tire clearance. After 2 years of R&D and a lot of investment in tooling the Blade V.3 is available with a traditional 33mm offset. Here are a few features that make these forks so strong.
- Using left and right specific investment cast drop-outs instead of traditional Cr-Mo plate we’ve eliminated the weld gap on the inside of the drops and were able to thicken up the drops toward the top making a much stronger drop-out/leg connection.
- Seamless swaged legs provide more strength than welded or fused caps-especially if pegs are installed. The ends of these legs are formed not capped and welded so there is nothing to fracture.
- A longer 166mm CNC’d steerer tube with increased wall thicknesses wherever possible and a 24mm x 1.5 compression cap with integrated race. Tapered and butted legs provide tons of strength crown weld surface and peg clearance.
- Post weld 4Q Baked heat-treatment.
