Despite the thinness of the fork blades the Wing TT fork has enough lateral stiffness for light roadies so it is quite a versatile fork.
This is the most basic model in the Motivation range and is outwardly similar to the Comp version, instead using some fibreglass with the carbon to save costs.
While Californian based Reynolds Composites have a Lite and Aero version in the Ouzo Pro range this is the standard model. Reynolds forks are very popular at the high end of the market.
Like the Acor Winter and Bontrager forks, the 4Ever is aimed at mudguard users and has correspondingly longer fork blades to provide clearance for mudguards and race tyres up to 25mm in section.
First generation generic carbon forks (using carbon blades and steerer) such as this would have been spec'd on high end bikes about five years ago though they have been usurped by the next generation of 100% carbon forks...
Ike Tseng produces a full carbon fork but this is the base model and uses an aluminium steerer tube, crown and carbon fork blades of unspecified grade that are profiled to give a very minimalist appearance.
Kinesis has developed this fork as a companion for its highly rated training frame of the same name. There's a full carbon steerer on an alloy crown, with the legs finished in an attractive wide weave pattern.
