Description of SR Suntour SWINGSHOCK 30mm 28" Trekking Suspension Fork - black
The no-suspension look!
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and for a
significant group of bikers the rigid fork is an
object of beauty. They adore the sleek looks and
simple lines inherent in its design. They accept the
rock-hard riding feel just to preserve the look
of their bikes (not because they're masochists).
SR Suntour's design team set themselves the task of
winning these 'hardliners' over. They had to create
a suspension fork which would convince the rigid
fork fans with a sleek and slim design coupled
with suspension comfort. The result was the
award-winning Swing Shock fork. The 30 mm of
travel absorbs the main hits from cobblestones,
sidewalk curbs, little stairs and potholes. The rigid
construction allows better acceleration whilst
pedaling and the fork weight of about 1400 g
is 200 g under the lightest standard telescopic
suspension fork in category. The low built-inheight
allows rigid fork replacement with minimal
change to the original bike geometry.
