SKU: N/A Category:


The Flanders Forte is a culmination of countless months our R&D department and race development program have invested. Resulting in some major changes from our previous Blade 3.0. Including a refined carbon lay-up shaving 200g and a new monocoque fork which has shaved a further 100g while maintaining stiffness and ride quality. Our 54cm frame weight is 980g and fork is 380g. Other major changes include switching to flat mount callipers which make for better braking and weight saving. We stuck with the 160mm rotor up front to maximise braking power while decreasing the rear rotor to a 140mm to increase control in slippery conditions. We have adopted thru axle 100x15mm front and 142x12mm rear to increase lateral stiffness and because of the safety benefits. Complete internal cable routing makes for a clean design and will maintain optimal gear shifting in adverse condition. Catering for the gravel grinders we have increased tyre clearance to allow a 45C tyre front and back. We have also increased our sizing option XS, S, M, L, XL . Along with all these changes we still offer a custom build which includes stem, bar and crank options at no extra charge. All of our build options come with tubeless wheel and tyres and SRAM 1x drive system.
