nice looking forks.... reversed arch na rin siya tulad ng manitou.... matibay kaya to sir warlock?
Yeah..rad looking fork ;D
Dunno sir bok, seems the UK users are satisfied with it, and since they are not keen on selling it sa US kaya wla tayo naririnig na raves.
here's what i got from their site:
RC40-voted best 2004 long travel fork
The new RC40XCFR takes the top of the podium in 'What Mountain Bikes' Bike Awards. Written by the industry's most respected journo's this is an annual review of the latest equipment and is based upon their long term test results.
Broken into various categories the Pace RC40XCFR won the 'Best Long Travel Category', arguably the most prestigious and certainly the most technically active and advanced sector of the fork market.
Of course we're tremendously pleased at having beaten much bigger manufacturers than ourselves to the top spot, but as a company Pace are completely focused on making the very best suspension possible.
For the full review please check the September 2004 issue, however here are a few choice extracts;
WHAT MOUNTAIN BIKE AWARDS 2004 BEST FORKS Theres a whole lot of technology being thrown at forks these days. although our winners here are all proven and dependable performers..."super stiff, bomber strong 130mm travel carbon carcass RC40. A totally new fork from the ground up , it offers coil simplicity and smoothness with easy travel adjust and 'slap on -automatic off' lockout innovation for a superb price. It's only just been released, so long term production might yet prove us mistaken, but we're loving the forks we've got now, whether we're hammering the drops or just floating the singletrack."

this is mysterious stuff...isn't kevlar a pliable material...as in flexy? how did they use it to make a stiff fork?
Actually Ted, havent work on it directly (yet), but based from what I read it can be pliable or it can be stiff....same like the Carbon fibers. OCLV also are applied as sheets, once they stack up together they can be very stiff & strong.
Seems it wont be long till we'll start seeing Kevlar counterpart of OCLV ;D
