The crown of the Falz Fork resembles the design of flat-crown steel forks in order to increase the length of the fork blades and therefore the comfort. Particular attention has been paid to tire clearance. The Falz will accept tires of 28 mm width. The fork utilizes monocoque construction and is made of a single piece without gluing the sleeve to the dropouts.
In order to match the stiffness of oversized tubing, the fork must have a high degree of lateral stiffness. This is something we have found lacking in several of the works we have examined over the last few years.
The Falz fork was designed with more lateral stiffness than virtually any other fork while retaining the compliance derived from the flat-crown design. This makes it the perfect match for the ride our steel frames are noted for.
Our design starts with the traditional arc of the fork blades and continues with an updated flat-crown design. The entire process of concept and design was done in-house through the evaluation of different models and solutions. The name Falz is taken from dialect for “scythe” as the side profile closely resembles that of this ancient tool.
The Falz fork is available in two versions – 45 mm and 50 mm rake and has a standard 1-1/8” steerer tube which will work with any standard headset.
