Our flat mount, carbon disc fork, complete with mounting points, so you can carry more on your next off-road adventure.
Ready For Adventure
Our Ride 400 fork, originally titled GXR fork, was built to complement the Kevin of Steel and titanium GXR frameset. Featuring 3 x M5 mounting points on each blade, the Ride 400 fork can accommodate for example our Rocket Pooches, or any other micro pannier, "anything" cages or fork-specific bags.
Tackle Tougher Terrain
The Ride 400 fork can run either a 27.5 (650b) or 700C wheelset; this allows riders to choose different adventures and tyre sizes. The design is optimised around 700C x 35-40, or 27.5 x 2.0-2.1, with similar effective rolling diameters. As a result, this fork is just as comfortable at the local cyclocross races as tackling rocky singletrack.

|Will the Ride 400 work with my frame?||The Ride 400 fork has a tapered 1 1/8"-1.5" (28.6-39mm) steerer with a 350 mm length. We use this steerer type on all of our forks and 44mm head tubes on all Curve frames. It may work with your frame, but you may have to change your headset or headset bearings to make it work. Please have a professional bicycle mechanic fit your Ride 400 fork.|
|What is the maximum recommended spacer stack I can put under my stem?||We don't recommend any more than 40mm below your stem and suggest putting a 3-5mm spacer above the stem to ensure precise compression and ample clearance of your stem cap.|
|How much can I carry on the fork legs?||
The M5 rivnuts can carry 3kg across all three mounts. Please use a mounting cage that utilises all three mounts. If attaching something to only two of the mounts, the weight limit is reduced to less than 1kg. We do not recommend attaching water bottles to the fork.
What torque should I use for the leg mounts?
Generally, you don't need to add a lot of torque to the M5 bolts to secure a mounting cage. The maximum recommended torque to attach a cage is 5Nm.
DO NOT apply threadlocker or use bolts with threadlocker already applied.
NOTE: If you're just putting bolts in the mounts to plug the holes - DO NOT torque the bolts. Only do them up finger tight.
|Can I use a front rack?||
Yes, but if running a front rack, please remember that the fork is designed to carry a max weight of 6 kg (3 kg/blade). We recommend using our Relaxle to securely fasten the struts along with a bracket that allows the rack to attach to the front and rear mount on the fork crown. If using a rack with struts that don't reach the axle, these can be attached to the fork, but we don't encourage this as a secure option.
