The RG1 fork is Ryan Gould’s signature fork and represents a contact of delicate magnificence because it paves the best way for the way forward for fork design. Ryan got here to us with the thought in Summer 2013. He spent months with our elements designer Nick Darger engaged on many various variations till they discovered the right end result. November 2013 we had our first prototypes, a few of that are nonetheless being ridden by our group right now in June 2014. Here at EPIC, we don’t accept much less, so we now have been thougholy testing and revising the RG1 forks to deliver ahead the most effective product attainable.
The RG1 Forks characterize many key options that a rider reminiscent of Ryan Gould appears for in a pair of forks. Most essential, they’re manufactured right here in America with the very best high quality supplies and craftmanship. They are CNC’d from one strong block of T6 6061 Aluminum, a cloth recognized for its nice strenth to weight ratio. The fork tube is tapered, its thickest half is available in at zero.23″, permitting for strenth have been wanted and chopping weight as nicely. The backside is countersunk and features a inbuilt cap for ICS. The prime permits for the set up of the usual 1″ starnut required to work with HIC and SCS. There is a machined lip inside to catch the tooth of the starnut and maintain it as a substitute.
Another nice function is the Fork Legs. The three legs are boxed and really thick to permit for top power. The small bridge between the legs permits them to work as one, additional growing the strengh. They have a slight downward taper for asthetics and weight discount, thinning the fork decrease down the place much less materials is required. At the underside they embrace inbuilt machined spacers, a should for any excessive finish forks nowadays. The countersunk space for the axel is simply large enough to suit a socket wrench. This means no extra preventing to get that peg tight sufficient.
