Hi all,I`ve been racking my brain for a while trying to remember the name/maker of a particular suspension fork from the 90`s.
They were an upside down design with canti mounts that stuck out through a machined slot in the uppers/outers.
They were black and had a rubber gator covering most of the fork lowers.
The fork got good reviews in the mags because the canti mounts helped to make the fork steer and track better than most of the flexi forks around at the time.
I,may be wrong but the fork may have been made in Holland.

Any ideas?

Yep thats them.
Many thanks for the replies.
I nearly bought a pair when I was looking around for my first suspension forks but went for Quadra`s instead.
