Intend

Edge 27,5

Are you interested to learn more about the technical background?

Frequency asked?

 

Do you offer stanchion guards?

 

No

 

Are you crazy?

 

No, my experience with that not covered lowers is: no problems at all. If you take "normal" care about your fork, there will not be more scratches on the lowers than on the uppers of a normal fork (there are no guards either and nobody gives a shit). If you are scared, there is a way: don't buy it ;)

 

Can I test the fork anywhere ?

 

No, unfortunately I'm to small too give the possibility to every customer to test a fork. I have 2 test forks which are always on the bikes of magazines like Cycleholix, Bike, Mountainbike, Pinkbike and so on. They should do the job of testing the fork and give you a neutral opinion if the fork works or not. Find out more at Press reports. In my opinion you can trust these magazines. They do not have a reason to give positive feedback to a bad fork.

 

Do you offer only black and blue color?

 

No. Black and blue are the standard colors which I prefer to sell. If you really want to have a special anodizing, I can do this for 300 euro additional due to additional costs for small quantity anodizing and the handling effort. The color can't be matched to some certain parts. I can't guarantee the resulting color for other colors, that's why I try to avoid doing special colors

 

 

 

 

 

Upsidedown is the new rightsideup.

 

An enduro fork which feels like a downhill fork. Only possible with upsidedown. Lower unsprung weight, higher fore-aft stiffness, better lubrication of the bushings, higher bushing distance. Combined with excellent air spring volumes, a reliable as well as service-free damping solution. Lots of advantages of this technique, so why not doing this ? 

The Intend Edge has oversized wall-thickness for precise cornering and indestructability.

 

Made in Germany, in small numbers. Assembled piece by piece in Freiburg - all by hand.

For all forks: It always takes a delivery time of about 3 month to get the fork ready. This is, because I can not afford to prepay all expensive parts of the fork to have some in stock. They always get made on demand. Sometimes I make 2-3 forks more as ordered, so sometimes it can be that the delivery time is shorter - please drop a mail and ask for it!
