ENVE Launches Gravel Road Fork with Integrated Carbon Fender | New Products

Posted by Elite Custom on

February 25, 2016 – Ogden, Utah, USA The ENVE Gravel Road Fork (GRD) which was first previewed at the North American Hand-built Bicycle Show in 2015 as a prototype, is now shipping to customers world-wide. 

ENVE’s GRD Fork is a purpose built road fork specifically optimized for the gravel, adventure, and all-road market.
The new GRD fork features a 382mm axle to crown length and offers tire clearance for up to a 38mm tire without a fender and 35mm with fender.  
The removable carbon fiber fender weighs roughly 150 grams and offers full coverage with simple installation and removal. 

“Creating a road fork with an integrated carbon fender system that offered tool free installation and removal is something we’ve wanted to do for years.  We wanted a fender that was so simple to install that you wouldn’t avoid riding in nasty conditions just because the fender was overly challenging to quickly install. Additionally, once the fender is on the bike, we wanted fender removal to be equally simple.  The rapidly emerging adventure, all-road, gravel road market provided the perfect platform for a fork with this functionality,” stated Marketing Director Jake Pantone. 

 “The Gravel Road Fork is a truly unique design for custom frame builders and their clients who are looking for performance road bikes that aren’t confined to concrete and asphalt road surfaces where larger volume tires, ample clearance, and disc brakes are the name of the game,” stated chief engineer Kevin Nelson. 

ENVE’s GRD Fork will be on display in ENVE’s booth and ENVE’s partner builder’s booths at the 2016 North American Hand-built Bicycle Show in Sacramento, California. The ENVE GRD Fork is now shipping to custom frame builders and ENVE’s distribution channels worldwide. ENVE’s new GRD fork will retail for SGD 1,125.
