So the idea is that the seals on your forks are rubbish. They are tight and all ‘frictiony’ and slow down the action of your fork – So says German startup company Dämpferklinik on their Kickstarter page.
They have no only come up with a new design that includes replaceable parts that work better than ordinary seals, but they’ve also added lots of colours. And if there’s one thing we’ve been hoping for over the last decade or so it’s coloured fork seals. Now, we can all invest in them and help these guys get the €85k they want to be able to start manufacturing their new super slick and coloured fork seals.
The planned retail price of the seals is €39 but for €19 up front now you get a set if they reach their target. Or if you want in at the top €999 gets you ten sets in a colour to match your ‘team’.
Check out the video and all he technical details here. Do that before passing comment, because actually, they may well be on to something. Whether it’s something worth €85k or not we guess we’ll have to wait and see.
