The Xcite Zero is the latest addition to the lightweight Xcite telescopic series of german:A. With a fork weight of less than 1000g is this newest Xcite generation sets a new standard for lightweight forks in the lightest configuration. This is achieved by a consistent use of carbon fiber reinforced plastic and the newly developed ultra lightweight suspension system IIAS of german:A. The most prominent features of Xcite such as straight dropout design and the muscle design have been preserved and further improved. In addition, the latest Xcite version also contains the solid 36mm stanchions and the proven plain bearings.
