Rigid mountain bikes have been around since the first fat tire hit the dirt. Not only do they offer excellent handling, but they're more reliable and lighter than their bouncy counterparts. The introduction of carbon fiber as a medium for building fames and forks has reinvigorated the rigid ride with newfound comfort alongside the rest of the benefits. When Niner fist released their Carbon Fork it was the recipient of multiple awards and extensive industry recognition.

What differentiates this fork from the rest is its monocoque design, which uses optimized carbon lay-up and weaves. The steerer tube seamlessly integrates with the lowers, creating a solid transition free of stress-prone bonds, unlike the more common three-piece forks. Niner dedicated extensive resources to optimizing the fork legs' weave to take full advantage of the damping characteristics of carbon. Impact energy is dispersed throughout the entire structure, suppressing trail vibrations without compromising steering precision.

The Niner Carbon Fork has a 470mm axle to crown length. For comparison's sake, an 80mm Reba has roughly a 490mm axle-to-crown length. Factor in 20 percent sag and the axle-to-crown is about 474mm. The Niner Carbon Fork will keep your geometry similar to an 80mm suspension fork. A 45mm offset provides excellent tracking and responsive turn-in. This fork can fit up to a 180mm rotor, and does not have a rider weight limit – reflecting Niner's confidence in their quality and design. The Niner Carbon Fork comes in ten colors -- Atomic blue, Hot tamale, Green, Licorice, Moondust grey, Nude carbon, Tangerine, Arctic white, Root beer, and Solid gold -- to give you the best match for your ride.

  • Monocoque carbon fiber construction is durable and damping
  • Keeps frame geometry similar to a 3in travel fork
  • Fits up to 185mm disc brake rotors
  • No rider weight limit

Does this fork have a tapered steering...

Does this fork have a tapered steering tube?

Best Answer

It comes with both tapered and non-tapered, but it would appear that the only size left in stock (in the dropdown menu under the price) is a 1.5 taper.
