Prolific composite manufacturer Enve has thrown its hat into the ring and fully committed to the use of disc brakes in cyclocross. The new format has met many challenges by alternate manufacturers, and Enve has answered with many clever, well engineered features. Rather than adapting the brand's cantilever designed fork and simply adding a post mount for disc brakes, Enve has implemented the versatility of a thru axle, as well as utilized a 160mm post-mount in order to capitalized on the larger rotor's better modulation and braking power. Additionally, the fork's left leg has a molded cable groove, and a cleverly included a composite clip which eliminates the need for any exterior form of cable management. This makes for a clean, elegant design, not broken up by unsightly zip ties or tape.
Separating themselves from other manufacturers, Enve's Disc Cross fork is hollow from one inch above the dropouts, all the way through the crown to the steerer. They also remove all bladders and molding devices after the construction process to ensure low weight. The fork is completely carbon besides the embedded aluminum post-mount studs.
Please note that this fork has a 1.5 inch tapered steerer tube, and thus is only compatible with frames accepting the format.
