The simple white graphics of the Genetic Karyotype give this 360g carbon fibre road fork a stylish look. It's stiff, yet dulls road buzz and takes the edge off the big bumps.
Quality is up there with the best, and the low 43mm offset brings more stable handling, which could help stabilise the ride of a ﬂighty race bike. Steering stiffness is excellent; a little extra effort is required to initiate a tight turn, but once leant over the Karyotype holds on tight, and sweeping bends feel great.
