Low deflection

Our quality fork arms feature very low bending and deflection

At a given fork blade design, lower bending (deflection) is only achieved by reinforcing the fork’s spine.

In conventinal production methods a steel profile is heated, formed, and finally heat treated. Therefore, the profile sections of blade and spine have to be the same. Only by a production approach where blade and spine are prepared sperately, a slim blade and a bulky spine can be achieved.

 

Result:

The customer receives an often needed slim fork but with less deflection. The difference is significantly visible in FE calculations.
