Suspension forks on gravel bikes are no longer a rarity, so it’s not surprising that industry giant FOX have also launched a model for bikes with drops bars in the form of the 32 Taper Cast suspension fork. The suspension fork is aimed at all those who are looking for more trail performance and comfort on gravel bikes. Logically, many proven technologies from the mountain bike sector have been adopted and thus the 32 Taper-Cast comes up trumps with FIT4 and GRIP damping. The high-quality suspension fork offers large clearances for tires up to 40 mm and thus allows mounting tyres with a larger contact patch. Those who ride their gravel bike in bad weather or commute to work every day will be happy about the integrated mounting points for mudguards. On the trail, the FOX Factory 32 Taper-Cast fork increases front-wheel traction and thus offers significantly more security and confidence in tricky situations. It noticeably expands the range of use of a gravel bike thanks to the increased off-road performance without compromising too much on the road. The jury was thrilled!
