Interesting, never come across them before. Not sure they are for me but maybe they'll grow on me...


They have the very nice upside down FLAME fork too, works extremely well on two of friends bikes.

Now those I like!

Not sure I'd spend €800 on them right now though...

Another alternative to the usual RS and Fox offerings but not really floating my boat. :D

Ive had a number of Pace forks (RC36 evo, RC40 and now RC38) they all seem buttery smooth in good conditions, but my RC40s suffer when they get wet, start to stiffen up (probably could do with a service and the seals replacing). I did have a set of USE XCR forks, these were an absolute gem to look at, the engineering on offer (to look at) were out of this world. They were pretty smooth for what they were! Im sticking with Pace, loving the carbon!
