NS Bikes RNS Forks
The RNS fork is a product for riders that don’t accept any compromises & build. Riders with one purpose in mind: street. It’s not a lightweight park fork with a limited warranty that will end it’s life quickly under hardcore street riders. Function & safety over fashion. A perfect fit for the Capital frame.
Designed around a slightly higher 428 mm axle-to-crown height, which gives the perfect balance between aggressive geometry and not too low front end. The updated forks features short but still stable 28mm rake (offset) which makes front end tricks such as nose manuals so much easier.
NS took the high end spec from RNS and reinforced main some main areas. The blades are made from custom triple butted tubing and are tapered at the bottom. Strong and very light. The steer tube is very thick in the places where it needs the additional support. The lower part of the 1-pcs steer tube is CNC'ed to the max to save additional weight with bigger cut-outs. The bottom of the tapered blades are connected with revised slightly bigger and thicker 5mm trick dropouts. Although it looks like there is peg mounting clearance, we still describe this fork as not designed to use with the pegs.
The RNS fork comes with a 190mm steer tube and cool looking and functional compression device. This 7075 alloy top cup will still work w/o any modification even after you cut your steer tube. The top cup looks really clean and features 8mm & 6mm Allen hex sockets. After being welded the fork is fully heat treated & prior to painting covered inside and outside with a thin, weightless layer that protects it from corrosion.
Note that this fork is often used also by fixed gear riders looking for a minimalistic fork with bmx background!
