The Columbus Futura rigid fork is the latest response to the growing hybridization of the on- and off-road worlds. Merging urban with natural, for riders looking for an all-purpose fork that is highly customizable in context and application. From straight roads to narrow trails, from dirt paths to urban scenarios, the Futura Gravel offers a wide range of possible applications, thanks to its specific shape and features.
Oversized clearances allow the use of lugged tires up to 40mm, which can handle the most demanding off-road conditions. When it gets wet, adventurers and commuters benefit from Futura's ability to accommodate mudguards, still with enough room to run tires up to 35mm. Whether on, or off road, wet or dry, the disc brake system guarantees reliability: the Futura Gravel has been designed around the latest flat mount brake and thru axle systems, fitting brake discs up to 160mm for powerful braking performance.
The 1-1/8 - 1-1/4 inch tapered steerer optimizes riding stability, combining the advantages of oversized lightweight sections with the ability to level even the roughest trails, while at the same time, in terms of aesthetics, it harmonizes perfectly with both modern carbon frames and steel, aluminum, or titanium frames. Last, with its installation height of 382mm, it ensures a lower center of gravity, which improves stability and proportions with a wider range of frame heights and geometries.
