Rigid and suspension forks for road, MTB and cyclocross riding. Forks essentially help connect your front wheel to your handlebar, via your stem, enabling you to navigate corners. The majority are manufactured from alloy and carbon, although a few steel models also exist. My forks section caters for everything from lightweight stiff carbon forks to heavy duty downhill MTB suspension forks.

RockShox are one of mountain biking's most iconic brands, primarily known for suspension forks and rear shocks, but in recent years releasing suspension seatpost and dropper posts too. Founded in 1989 in the boom of the mountain biking scene, their first fork was the RS-1, which was followed throughout the nineties with the RockShox Mag, Quadra, Judy and Indy ranges. This success continued in 1998 with the lightweight SID models, and the heavy duty downhill Boxxer ranges. Due to competition from Fox, Marzocchi, RST and Manitou, sales slowed, and the company was taken over by SRAM in 2002, and has since thrived, with the Reverb Dropper post a common sight on mountain bikes worldwide.
