Ritchey Carbon Fork review£350.00

This is by far the lightest - and most expensive - fork on test here. It makes for a pretty steep head angle and very lively steering on them too.

BikeRadar score3.5/5

This is one of the lightest - and most expensive - forks in its class. It's intended for race-bred machines that were designed for short travel forks, and it makes for a pretty steep head angle and very lively steering on them too.

However, a big offset helps keep handling stable and, we suspect coincidentally, makes it an ideal choice if you want to run a 29erwheel up front and a 26 out back - assuming you use disc brakes, because the canti brake bosses are for a 26in wheel. Construction is monocoque carbon, including the steerer tube (like the Merida fork) and the ride feel is light, lively and more comfy over bumps than virtually any comparable fork.
