Whisky Parts Co. No.9 Monster Cross MCX Fork

Whisky’s latest fork is their No.9 MCX “monster cross” fork which brings extra-wide tires, 700c x 51 mm or 650b x 61 mm (that’s 2.4”), to your corresponding frame. So how is this different than a MTB fork? Well, the MCX has a 415 mm axle-to-crown, minimizing the geometry effects. It’s also got 51 mm of offset, improving toe clearance with large tires or fenders. The MCX is within the Whisky CX fork family, with a 12 mm thru axle, and flat-mount brakes. There are also three-Pack mounts, dynamo cable routing, and fender mounts (700c x 45 mm tire clearance with fender) which add versatility for bikepacking and gravel riders.

MSRP $520.00

Sometimes technological advances hit a few bumps in the road. That’s the case for ENVE at the moment. They just issued a recall for their Tapered Road 2.0 Disc Forks, claiming up to 600 could be affected by a stress riser forming above the disc mount on the left leg of the fork. So far, a few have cracked, but no injuries have been reported. To see if your fork is part of this recall, head to Bicycle Retailer.

Rock Shox: Introducing the RS-1 Fork

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.”
