The 38 Factory long-travel Enduro fork is a marvel of engineering designed to elevate your riding experience. This exceptional fork features ultra-durable 38mm Kashima coated stanchion tubes, along with a range of innovative features like a floating axle, redesigned arch, and lower leg bleeders for pressure release.
The floating axle takes center stage, providing remarkable performance benefits by precisely aligning the width of the fork's wheel mounting surface with the front hub flange spacing. This meticulous alignment ensures optimal chassis alignment and eliminates any unwanted friction between the upper and lower fork legs. The result is a significantly smoother suspension movement throughout the entire range of the fork's travel, enhancing sensitivity and overall ride quality.
Equipped with a quick-release lever-operated floating axle system, the 38 Fork combines the advantages of a floating axle with the convenience of a tool-free quick-release mechanism, making wheel removal and installation a breeze.
The lower leg bypass channels play a vital role in alleviating air pressure by increasing the air volume within the lower legs. This ingenious design significantly reduces unintended pressure ramping, providing a more controlled and comfortable ride. Additionally, the lower leg bleeders allow for effortless atmospheric pressure equalization with just the press of a button.
Leaving no stone unturned, the 38's lower leg arch design prioritizes weight reduction without compromising the stiffness or strength required for modern enduro and gravity-style riding. Every gram is meticulously shaved off to optimize performance while maintaining the utmost integrity of the fork.
