So I had bought the Fit Blade forks when they were at the V2 version. (years ago) The reason that I bought them was that they were one of the lightest forks available. Ultimately they cracked on me and I had to get new ones. But they were really good while they lasted.
Price & Weight are comparative to how good the deal is.
Good deal = 5 Star
Bad Deal = 1 Star
Our goal was to design and produce an extremely strong fork with plenty of tire clearance. After 2 years of R&D and a lot of investment in tooling, the Blade V.3 is available with a traditional 33mm offset. Here are a few features that make these forks so strong.
|Steerer Length: 166mm|
|Wheel Size: 20"|
|Material: 4130 Chromoly|
|Dropout Size: 10mm|
|Weight: 1020g / 2.25lbs|
A: Steerer Length: 166mm
This steerer length is average sized. Longer steer tubes require more headset spacers or a frame with a longer head tube. They will also make the bars higher up naturally.
B: Offset: 33mm
This is a longer offset. A long offset will give you more stability and control. But less responsivness. So turns will feel slower and controlled.
C: Dropout Size: 10mm
Designed for front wheels with a 10mm front axle. If your front axle is smaller than your rear, its 10mm.
These are really light and affordable forks. The offset is designed for more controlled riding. Nose manuals will be harder with these forks.
