This is a big one for us, and a product that we couldn’t be more excited to see these finally hit shops very soon. Introducing our new Storm Fork, the end result of over 2 years of extensive R&D into how we can make the strongest BMX fork possible. After years of work, and countless hours of laboratory and real life rider testing with the PRO team, we have reached a new benchmark in BMX fork strength.
Don’t let the Storm fork’s subtle appearance deceive you, this fork is a well-calculated balance of tubing thickness, material specification and our own heat-treatment process, ensuring that it can hold up to more abuse than any fork before it. Despite the huge increase of strength in this fork, we used a clean and simplistic design which keeps the weight down, making it much lighter than you would expect.
The Storm fork was a chance for us to really spend a lot of time looking into the welding process. We experimented with different welding rods to find out how we could ensure the strongest possible welds, since that’s one of the most critical areas on a fork.
We’ll be giving you more insight into the design process and showing the testing that went into the fork very soon to show just how strong this thing is, but until then take a closer look at the new pride and joy of the 2017 eclat product line.
