Air Bike is delighted to announce the release of the XC32A HLO mountain bike suspension fork with straight steerer tube, shoulder hydraulic lockout and 140mm of plush travel. The XC32A HLO comes with a 1 1/8 straight steerer or tapered steerer (please add a steerer tube adapter to your order for tapered or drop me a message).
Our fork is designed by us, a group of cycling fanatics, specifically for the UK MTB scene and is built to our specifications by a world-leading fork manufacturer. We are positive that you will be blown away by the build quality as it really is second to none and is covered by a ‘no quibble’ 30-day money back guarantee.
The XC32A HLO fork features 140mm of playful air-adjustable suspension, offering a buttery smooth ride and the ability to tailor the spring stiffness to the rider’s weight by adding or reducing air pressure in the air chamber. The advantage of an air spring over a coil spring is that the air spring dramatically reduces the overall weight of the XC32A HLO fork, leading to a jaw dropping total weight of 1670g.
Note: The fork technology has about 10-20mm of sag from factory which helps prevent bottom-out.
The XC32A HLO fork is fully rebound-adjustable. Rebound adjustment is critical for cornering control as it ensures that the front wheel remains in contact with the ground as much as possible, bolstering traction when things get slippery. Finding your sweet-spot will also reduce wrist, elbow and shoulder fatigue by controlling fork bounce over the rough stuff.
The XC32A HLO fork features our *Hydraulic Gated Lockout System so you can progressively tune the fork’s stiffness. Now you can ride uphill fully locked-out with no bounce, reducing effort and making your ride that bit more enjoyable! This clever Lockout system also reduces the overall fork weight by roughly 350 grams.
