Fork Geometry

A: Steerer Length: 165mm

This is the average-sized steer tube. A bigger steer tube will require spacers and make the bars higher. These forks don't do that.

B: Offset: 15mm

This is an extremely steep offset. They call it "modern". A steep offset makes nose manuals easier, while making the bike feel more responsive.

C: Dropout Size: 10mm

For 10mm front wheel axles.

Conclusion

When I went from 32 mm offset to a 26mm offset I noticed a pretty big difference. If I bought these 15mm offset forks, I wonder if it would be too responsive. It really just depends on your riding style. The 15mm offset will make it so responsive, so if that suits your style... get them! They also designed the r 15 fork to work well with pegs and hold up to grinds.
