Lightweight ‘winter’ forks such as these are becoming a regular sight on fast commuter and audax bikes.
The integrated crown makes this one especially well suited to a modern carbon frame that has been pressed into service during the winter months. In most respects it is identical to the ITM fork, but employs an aluminium steerer-tube instead. These forks have a cutaway on the inside edge of the crown to provide sufficient room for a 25mm tyre and a mudguard, and so needs to be partnered with long-reach 47mm callipers available from Tektro or Shimano. They feel a little harsh over poor surfaces but we aren’t complaining at this price.
