G Series Gravel Fork
ENVE created its G Series Gravel Fork to meet the needs of all-road adventurers wanting to break free from the constricted guidelines of road or cyclocross-specific fork options. With clean, flat-mount disc caliper attachment, ample tire clearance, and internal cable routing, this fork is more than ready to tackle all the gravel, cobbles, and otherwise rough-surfaced roads you can find.
ENVE opts for a 12mm thru-axle with this fork to increase stability and stiffness compared to forks with quick-release dropouts, however, it isn't as harsh as those overbuilt using 15mm thru-axles. This serves to improve braking and front end tracking for a more responsive and confident ride on everything from sweeping, autumnal descents over leaf covered roads to clay baked bumpy fire roads in July. As an added bonus, the thru-axle system means the wheel is always aligned when installed, eliminating the power-sucking and annoyingly noisy rotor rub that often plagues quick-release designs.
Never one to ignore durability and weight loss, ENVE fashions the entire fork as a whole from unidirectional carbon fiber from the steerer tube to the dropouts. This one-piece construction not only results in exceptionally clean lines but allows for uninterrupted carbon fiber layup which increases strength while also reducing weight by getting rid of redundant materials. You can ride with confidence knowing that this fork will provide a light, snappy ride for miles and miles over the years.
ENVE understands that gravel and all-road adventures often require a beefier tire than your standard 33mm cross fare, so it constructs the Gravel Road Fork to accommodate tires up to 50mm wide in 700c and a 2.25-inch tire in 650b for some extra cushion and traction over loose and bumpy terrain. You can run that narrower rubber on smoother days and when speed is a priority, and rest assured the clearance is there when you need to bring out the burly treads.
The ENVE Carbon Disc Cross Fork is available in a 1.125-inch to 1.5-inch tapered steerer tube and is compatible with flat-mount disc brakes with 140 or 160mm rotors.
