What they say: from Vojo Magazine,

"KS ENTERS THE GRAVEL MARKET WITH A SUSPENSION FORK!
This KS fork truly impressed us with its effectiveness. During descents, you can clearly go faster and, more importantly, with greater confidence. We also noticed a real benefit from the suspension when climbing, making it easier to choose the right lines. Verdict on the Trail: 40mm of Pure Bliss. KS has successfully diversified and entered the gravel market with mature products right from their first version.

  • Compatible with up to 700x50c tires
  • Flat mount disc brake compatibility

Technologies:

  • Unparalleled Stiffness-to-Weight Ratio: The carbon arch brings forth exceptional stiffness while minimizing weight. By leveraging the strength of carbon fiber, the fork achieves incredible rigidity, ensuring precise handling and improved control over varied terrain. You’ll experience heightened responsiveness, allowing for quick and precise steering inputs, translating your every move into effortless maneuverability.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: The carbon arch adds a touch of elegance and sleekness to your gravel bike’s front suspension fork. Its visual presence elevates the overall aesthetics of your bike, turning heads on the trails and reflecting your commitment to high-performance equipment.
  • TAILOR YOUR SUSPENSION’S RESPONSE TO SUIT YOUR PREFERENCES AND THE SPECIFIC CONDITIONS YOU ENCOUNTER.
  • Customizable Ride Experience: By tweaking the rebound speed, you can achieve the perfect balance between control and comfort. It’s your ride, your rules.
  • Adaptability to Changing Terrain: Gravel riding often involves diverse landscapes. Fine-tune the fork’s response to soak up the bumps, maintain tire contact with the ground, and stay in control, no matter what the trail throws at you.
  • Improved Handling and Stability: A faster rebound provides a snappier feel, allowing your bike to recover quickly and maintain optimal contact with the ground. On the other hand, a slower rebound ensures better traction, reducing the risk of losing control on loose or slippery surfaces. Achieve the perfect balance to conquer technical sections with confidence.
  • Enhanced Efficiency and Speed: Fine-tuning the rebound speed helps maximize your pedaling efficiency and overall speed. This translates into efficient power transfer and smoother rides, enabling you to reach new levels of speed and performance.
  • On-the-Fly Adjustments: The external knob placed at the bottom of the lower offers the convenience of easy, tool-free adjustments.
  • WANT TO PUSH THE LIMITS? THERE IS CLEARANCE FOR 700x50c TIRES!
  • When it comes to gravel biking, having a front suspension fork that can accommodate tires up to 50c width opens up a world of exciting possibilities and benefits.
  • Unmatched Comfort: With wider tires, you’ll experience enhanced comfort during your rides. The increased tire volume allows for lower tire pressures, effectively absorbing vibrations and bumps on rough terrain.
  • Enhanced Traction: Wider tires provide a larger contact patch with the ground, delivering superior traction on loose gravel, dirt, or uneven surfaces. This means better control, improved stability, and increased confidence while tackling challenging terrains.
  • Versatility at Its Best: Whether you’re exploring backcountry trails, conquering rocky paths, or commuting on rugged roads, these wider tires enable you to handle a wide range of surfaces and conditions. Adaptability becomes your greatest asset, empowering you to venture further and explore new horizons.
