All you care about is going downhill? You're a heavy rider? Your riding style is uber aggresive? When someone asks you about the weight of your bike all you do is shrug? You are paranoid about USD being not stiff enough? You are the Rocky Balboa of Mountain Biking? You only ride the nastiest, steepest and roughest trails out there? You are crashing like... alot?
If you answer one or more of the questions above with a "yes", you might be a candidate for the Flash.
With an even further reinforced upper part of the fork (in comparison to our already sturdy Edge model), you are getting the ultimate stiff & sturdy upside down fork, ready for anything you throw at it. This burly fork is made for riders who want the absolute upside down fork in terms of stiffness, stability and precision. It's also a valid choice for a big hitting e-bike rig. And no, freeride is not dead.
Our DH-ready damping and airspring provides an unmatched subtleness and a natural, predictable feel. In case you wish for more progression: A volume spacer which can be installed in 2 positions is included.
Our forks are especially easy to service and special tools are not required. Changing travel is also easily possible, no extra airshaft needed! Just open the fork with your regular toolset of choice and adjust travel spacers. For more information about service and travel adjustment check out the Tech section.
