ENVE is launching adding a new fork for gravel riding and bikepacking. ENVE’s Adventure Fork features full carbon construction and all the mounts you need to carry water bottles and other fork-mounted cargo.
“Like all ENVE products, the Adventure Fork was inspired from time in the saddle and in this case, our custom frame builder partners. Our frame building partners needed an ENVE solution that was both beautiful and functional. Our endurance, adventure, and bike packing athletes and customers needed a fork with more cargo hauling options, greater tire clearance, and dynamo compatibility for when riding in the dark is not optional. The dynamo and brake hose routing is hidden to help prevent snags that could jeopardize the ride,” Jake Pantone, ENVE’s vice president of product, said.
The Adventure Fork features a three-pack of accessory mounts on each fork leg to carry water bottles as well as cargo. The Adventure Fork also features internal dynamo routing for lights and electronics charging.
Like ENVE’s carbon mountain fork, this new model features axle flip-chips to adjust the amount of offset to fine-tune handling for rider preference and wheelsize. The two rakes achieved by the flip-chip system are 49mm and 55.5mm. In the 49mm position, the axle-to-crown measurement is 398mm while the 55.5mm rake delivers a 406mm axle-to-crown measurement.
Tire clearance is quite generous and varies slightly based on the orientation of the trail-adjusting flip-chip. Maximum 700c/29″ tire clearance is 2.1″ in the 49mm offset position and 2.3″ tires in the 55.5mm position. Maximum 650b/27.5″ tire clearance is 2.3″ in the 49mm offset position, which grows to a massive 2.6″ in the 55.5mm position.
This full carbon fork tips the scales with a claimed weight of 575g. The ENVE Adventure Fork is available now at authorized retailers for $625.
