This 470mm-long fork has a generous 47mm offset – 9mm more than the 26in-wheel version, which is the same price. The combination of a steep (70-degree or more) static head angle and long offset works well on most 29ers and the Ferrara is a nicely built alternative to more established fork brands.
Made from carbon fibre and aluminium, it's good looking and comes with a two-year crash replacement warranty. Weight is reasonable and there’s an option of bolt-on cantilever bosses. The ride feel is comfy and there’s very little flutter or flex under heavy braking.
