Alpaca is our rigid steel fork - Rugged and long for mountain bikes and adventure bikes

Bikepacking, gravel, dirt

The Alpaca fork was developed for our Cascade drop bar dirt bike (read more about that here). It's a long, steel rigid fork that's perfect for bike packing missions, or just simplifying your ride. It's made to Cotic specifications with heat-treated cromoly tubing, taper steerer and is based around replacing 29er 100mm suspension forks.

It has lots and lots (and lots) of bosses and mounts. It's thru axle and short 44mm offset for steering accuracy, and flat mount +20 brake for proper size disc rotors up to 180mm.
