The construction of the Fluid is is still totally CNC-machined, and even with a reinforced steerer and crown, the Fluid is the lightest of the batch of long-travel forks we tested. Despite the skinny crown it’s impressively stiff.
The nitrogen damped stroke is the nicest we’ve ever ridden from White Brothers. It’s smooth and consistent from the box, and we’ve had no issues with previous White Brothers long-termers. You can control ramp up/compression by pressurising the damping circuit – great for big stuff.
The 100-120mm (3.9-4.7in) version costs £575 but either way, the unique build means extra expense.
White Brothers are now part of the same company as MRP and the link up seems to be doing them good.
