Kaisei Fork Blades

Kaisei "Toei Special"
fork blades

  • Slender lower section for best shock absorption
  • Small-diameter lower section is easy to rake
  • Imperial Oval cross-section
  • Cromoly steel
  • Diameter at tip: OD 13 mm; ID 11 mm
  • Weight: 177 g (each)

Tests have shown that fork blades can absorb larger bumps that overwhelm even a 42 mm-wide tire. To combine comfort with sure-footed handling, a fork blade should be strong near the crown and flexible in the lower section.

The Kaisei “Toei Special” fork blade has been inspired by the Reynolds 531 “Super Resilient” fork blades used by the great French constructeurs René Herse and Alex Singer.

Made in Japan.

$ 50 Fork Blades (Pair)
