All ENVE forks and components are designed and engineered to capitalize on the inherent strengths of carbon fiber. This guiding principle equates to parts that are both simple and highly functional. The ENVE Road Fork encompasses the entirety of ENVE design. Because carbon is strongest when fibers are run continuously without interruption or abrupt changes in direction, the ENVE Road Fork uses continuous fibers from the top of the steerer tube to the bottom of the drop-outs. The brake bolt hole is simultaneously molded into the fork’s crown. This construction method produces a fork that is free of bonding and drilling and consequently saves a lot of weight while at the same time creating more strength. The ENVE Road Fork has expanded over the years and is available in disc brake models as well as a variety of rakes and steerer tube diameters. Regardless of the configuration the design principles remain the same and each model is tried, proven, and validated to produce the best riding experience.
When everyone was turning away from the fork aftermarket, we focused our efforts on creating the best aftermarket fork we could. By following our mantra of functional simplicity, we developed a manufacturing process that allows the fibers in an ENVE fork to run continuously from top of the steerer to the bottom of the drop-outs. The ENVE forks are a hollow one-piece design free of bonding or drilling. Additionally the brake bolt hole is molded into the crown allowing for additional weight savings and strength. You can literally put an ENVE fork on a bike within minutes of it leaving the mold. While this manner of construction is novel, the real win is that the majority of artisan frame builders and customers choose ENVE as their fork of choice due to its confident on road performance and handling characteristics.
