With its stout Mad Max swagger, ENVE’s new $625, adjustable 29er-only rigid mountain fork attracted much attention at Eurobike last week. The suspension-corrected fork is designed to maintain frame geometries and has an axle chip system that can be toggled to create a 44mm rake offset with a 470mm axle-to-crown length, or a 55mm rake offset with a 472mm axle-to-crown measurement. The fork also features a clever brake hose clip that can be swapped out for a short molded carbon fender. It comes with adaptors for running either a 160- or 180mm rotor as well.

ENVE's Adjustability

The fork’s chip system (top left) can be flipped for either a 44- or 55mm offset. The molded carbon fender (bottom left and top right) clips on to the fork and includes a slick, integrated brake hose guide (bottom right).

The sub-700-gram fork features continuous fiber construction, with strands of carbon running uninterrupted from the top of the steerer tube to the bottom of the dropouts, which results in a strong yet light structure, according to ENVE Marketing Manager Jake Pantone. The Mountain Fork comes with a tapered 1.125- to 1.5-inch taper and has 3.46-inches of tire clearance.

About the author: Don Palermini

Chicago-born Don Palermini became a cycling-based life-form in the sixth grade after completing a family road bike tour of his home state. Three years later he bought his first mountain bike to help mitigate the city's pothole-strewn streets, and began exploring the region's unpaved roads and trails. Those rides sparked a much larger journey which includes all manner of bike racing, commuting, on- and off-road bike advocacy, and a 20-plus-year marketing career in the cycling industry that landed him at his current gig with Santa Cruz bicycles. Now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area, his four favorite words in the English language are "breakfast served all day," together in that order.
