Feature Articles Parts Video Wheels

Ben from Whisky Parts Co shows us some new 2013 carbon forks and carbon wheels. The forks use a brand new QR15 axle (taken from mountain bike technology) designed and produced in a partnership with SRAM for increased stiffness to run road disc brakes.

The Whisky No.9 road and cross thru-axle disc forks feature a Whisky exclusive optimized version of RockShox popular and easy-to-use Maxle 15mm thru-axle. It has also been modified to an easy-on-the-eyes width for carbon cross and road forks. The warranty is 5 years to the original owner and will be available around November 2012 in the U.S.

From the manufacturer:
“One tight corner is all it takes to feel just how our No.9 forks deliver a stiffer, secure connection for a more responsive ride. Add to that disc brake compatibility for stop-on-a-dime power even in the mud or rain, and the peace of mind that your front end won’t squirm when you’re bombing through sketchy turns – then you’ve got the kind of power, control and confidence usually reserved for rock stars and dictators of small countries.”
