Lauf Trail Racer 29 fork

A truly light, ugly-ducking of a fork. But is it a functional swan?

Rock Shox Lyrik Solo Air

Standing in the queue for the bike-park gondola I compared my Solo Air to a triple-clamp fork on someone else’s late 90’s downhill bike. With 35mm stanchions the single crown Lyric made the other fork look weedy. To have a fork that is as strong as Popeye, literally bulging in the fork lowers to accommodate big bushings, while staying relatively light (2313g) is just fantastic.

Magura Durin

Looking around at the number of dedicated XC forks you’d be forgiven for thinking fork manufacturers had decided that the market was dead and that we all need 160mm forks on all our bikes. Admittedly the need for 80mm forks isn’t what it was so it’s nice when someone, in this case Magura, comes along and makes one. And does a good job of it too.
