We’re stoked to release our new carbon fork – an ideal upgrade for the Kepler Disc frameset. It features carbon blades matched to alloy crown, steerer and dropouts – saving weight and adding stiffness to the front end. We’ve also drilled the crown and added eyelets so you can still run mudguards if you wish.
The fork retails at £149, however if you purchase it along with a Kepler Disc frameset you get it at a reduced price of £129. You’ll still receive the original steel forks, so you can swap between the two depending on what type of riding you’re doing.
This season we’re experimenting with our notorious Swift track frame – to see what improvements we can make on this product going forward.
Earlier in the year we put together this one-off prototype, which is basically our original Swift on steroids. We’ve used raw stainless steel which, as well as looking awesome, is far stronger than normal steel allowing us to save considerable weight on the design. We’ve then used a 44mm headtube and tapered carbon forks to stiffen up that front end.
To test the product we’ve given this frame to Marlon from the Defi Collective – a London based fixed and road crit team that we support. He’ll put this product through its paces this season and give us the feedback we need to finalise the production model. Follow them on Instagram @deficollective to see how they get on this season.
