Hell yes. If you’re looking for a way to lighten up your hardtail for expedition-style riding, check out the ENVE rigid 29′r fork. When my hardtail shows up, I’ll be trying one of these out for sure.

Out of all the new tech we got to ride in Moab at SRAM’s Trail House, the RS-1 was my favorite. Later this week I’ll go into a more in-depth review, but for now, check out this press-release on this innovative suspension system:
“When it came time to best our XC platform, it meant reevaluating every element that defines the most winning XC fork in world cup history. A ruthless approach to material optimization, an ultra efficient energy saving lockout and quite possibly the world’s lightest air spring – all designed to enable riders to find their next line.
The outcome was something unexpected. A fork that ushers in a new-generation philosophy to XC rider efficiency, packaged in a chassis design never before seen by RockShox. RS-1 harnesses 25 years of creativity, refinement, and the courage to tackle the biggest engineering challenge of mountain bike suspension to date: the inverted chassis.”

David at Death Spray Custom does it again! This killer neon fork looks great on Marco’s Cinelli with ENVE and SRAM Red. Head over to the Death Spray Custom blog for more photos.
David at DSC just posted this bit of radness for sale on his new webshop. If you’re into it, you better act now, because there will only be one made.
This is amazing. Sorry for the Instagram pic but it’s all that Death Spray Custom had! It’s going on the Hunt‘s prize bike.
