Fork Geometry

A: Steerer Length: 165mm

This is the average-sized steer tube. A bigger steer tube will require spacers and make the bars higher. These forks don’t do that.

B: Offset: Adjustable (22mm, 25mm, 28mm) – Learn more about offset here

22mm for super tech and front-wheel stuff

25mm for street and park moves

28mm offset for high-speed trails and park.

C: Dropout Size: 10mm

For 10mm front wheel axles.

Conclusion

Honestly, I’m thinking about getting these next. It’s such a good idea to have the adjustable offset options. Now you can try out a certain offset and go back to something more comfortable if need be. These forks are super light, and make out of high-quality chromoly.
