Seven Cycles 5ECarbon / Road racing bike fork

Seven Cycles 5ECarbon



50 percent of a good bike frame consists of a good fork.

Seven Cycles offers its customers a customized carbon fork — the Seven Cycles 5E fork. To match the rider’s cycling characteristics perfectly, Seven Cycles selects one of 20 differently dimensioned variants when installing the fork ends on the 5E fork. Seven Cycles used state-of-the-art tools to engineer the fork: it is CAD-designed, FEM analyzed and optimized. The 5E fork is very lightweight and strong, and possesses excellent absorption characteristics. The designers also took aerodynamic and everyday factors into consideration. Despite its innovative appearance, the Seven Cycles 5E fork is also available in an inclement-weather version, with eyes for fastening the fenders.
