Go e-bay. Plenty tasty carbon forks for low price and will save you many oz

I bought Trigon for £115, 500 grams The front of your mtb will be so light after removing those susser forks you will not notice the rough ground

Another vote for the Salsa fork, it's a nice looking bit of kit and would go well with the Duster's skinny tubes

Steel as well so keeping it real :D
