Enve just announced the Adventure Fork, a rigid carbon fiber fork designed for bikepacking and gravel bikes. The fork features an axle flip-chip (Enve is also calling it a drop-out chip) that take the fork’s rake and axle-to-crown measurement from 49mm and 398mm, respectively, to 55.5mm and 406mm, depending on which works best with the bike’s geometry. Enve released a very similar fork in May for rigid MTB enthusiasts.
In the 55.5mm rake configuration, the fork can fit 29er tires up to 2.3 inches wide, and 27.5″ tires up to 2.6 inches wide. For those on the gravel side, tires up to 700×58 should fit. In the 49mm rake setting, tire clearance is reduced by about 0.2 inches.
Enve doesn’t skimp on accessory mounts, running three bolts down each side. The fork features built-in wire routing for a dynamo to run lights and charge electronics while on the move, and can fit 140mm or 160mm disc brake rotors. Like recent fork releases from other brands, the Enve Adventure fork also includes mounting points for a fender.
At 575g, this is a lightweight fork that should make both ITTs and weekend excursions faster and more comfortable. Enve says the fork comes with “lifetime incident protection and 5-year factory warranty.”
The Enve Adventure Fork will ship starting on October 15, 2020 and retails for $625.
