Trialtech Sport Lite 26"

Superlight Trialtech Sport Lite forks! Now with updated brake mounts for 2016!

- Extensively tested and used by Trialtech team riders Kenny Belaey, Thomas Remvik Aasen, Neil Tunnicliffe and World Cup regular Andrei Burton.
- Tapered and internally butted fork legs save weight compared to competitors models, but still maintain a good level of strength.
- A thick, butted 7075 aluminium steerer tube (3mm wall thickness at the stem clamp area increasing to 6mm at the crown) is pressed and bonded into the fork crown for a secure join.
- Neat forged dropouts keep weight down but offer good weld contact area onto the fork legs, increasing strength in this vital area. Please note: The Sport Lite forks use an industry standard 9mm dropout, so some hubs like Echo TR may need a small modification to fit into the fork as they have a 10mm axle.
- Disc Only model: IS disc mount has a unique feature to the Trialtech Sport Lite fork range - an extended weld path that wraps around the fork leg reduces stress build up to help prevent cracking at the end of the disc tab.
- 4-Bolt Only model: Updated for 2016, 4-Bolt mounts (94mm spacing) now use repositioned brake mounts that sit more in board and greatly reduce stress on the fork legs. Please note: Due to their lower profile position, certain brake clamps such as the Racing Line Clamps will not work without spacers between the clamp and the fork leg. To check if your brake clamps will work without placing washers under them, the measurement shown in this image must be 3mm or less.
- The forks are shot blasted and then given a tough anodised Black finish, which is complimented nicely by the latest Trialtech logo design.
- Available in IS Disc Only or 4-Bolt Only braking options.
- The forks are NOT supplied with a star nut as standard. The Large TartyBikes Star Nut fits perfectly.
- Weight - Disc Only: 750g. 4-Bolt Only: 741g.

Fork Dimensions

- Axle to Crown length: 405mm
- Axle Offset: 30mm
- Steerer tube length: 200mm

Additional Information

Please note that due to the design limitations of 4-Bolt forks, they are always less durable than the same model without the 4-Bolt mount fitted. The stiff section where the mount is located causes a stress riser, and this makes the fork more likely to break. We therefore advise that forks fitted with a 4-Bolt brake mount will always fail earlier than the same fork without this mount attached.

Questions

Tom Evans

Hi as far as strength and stiffness is concerned, how do these forks compare to the tnn and trialtech sport forks?

Hi Tom - as for strength, these forks are stronger than both. Several riders doing very large riding have been running them for a long period of time, and they have outlasted the Sport forks (by a factor of 6) on the test rig too. They have gained this strength by adding a little flex in the lower part of the legs where there is relatively little stress. This moves stress away from the shoulders and crown where there is more stress and breakages usually occur. They also feature an extended weld from the top of the disc mount which does a similar job; it leads the stress away from the top of the disc mount and in to the side of the leg where there is far less stress. In short - they aren't as stiff as the TNNs or Sport forks (but they're about as stiff as most other forks), but this increases strength. Hope that helps! Thanks, Flipp.

What Hope adapter would I need for 180 mm rotors?

Hi Andy - thanks for your question. That would depend on what brake you are using. If you are using a post-mount brake you would need Hope Adaptor F, if you have a #5 caliper, you would need an IS to IS +20mm adaptor, and if you have a #3 caliper you wouldn't need any adaptors at all. All sizing variations are explained on the adaptor's product page in the "Additional Information" tab if you need further information. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.
