DT Swiss One Piece Mag Federgabel

Totally new for 2014, the One Piece Mag lower is a high tech, injection-molded, magnesium piece of engineering. Optimized through FEA (Finite Element Analysis) it is an engineering feat. that employs material only where needed, yielding super low weight with high stiffness. The One Piece MAG forks are available with 100mm up to 150mm of travel. While there are three versions for all wheel-sizes for the 100mm and 120mm forks, the 140mm and 150mm models are suitable for 26″ and 650B wheels.
