The Sweep is the latest addition to X-Fusion’s 34mm line of forks. Joining the Slant (26inch) and the Trace (29inch), the Sweep is a dedicated 27.5inch wheel fork. What sets it apart from other forks as a dedicated 27.5inch fork is the offset. It’s 46mm offset provides precise, yet smooth handling characteristics matching the trail found on the 26inch and 29inch forks. Inside the Sweep is the highly accredited RL2 damper system with Mid-Valve technology. This damping system gives the rider rebound adjustment with an on-the-fly lockout lever. Helping control the fork when the terrain gets rough is X-Fusion’s secondary compression circuit, the Mid-Valve. On top of the chassis and high-quality sealed damping system, the Sweep is also first to see X-Fusion’s Nvolve custom seals. Nvolve seals improve the seal life and reduce the friction and breakaway force by up to 150% over custom stanchion tube coatings found on the market.


The Sweep is set to deliver the industry leading performance and quality riders have come to expect from X-Fusion. It will be an early 2014 model year release and available for purchase in June 2013.
