The new RC38 AirForce fork uses the proven design of the other
RC-forks in Pace’s range, but instead of steel coils or elastomers,
has an adjustable air spring hidden inside one leg. The weight is expected to be around 2.5lb.
Pace’s new fork for the year 2000 looks set to take them back to the top of the cross-country tree. Though many racers praise their RC36 fork, this new model, the RC38 AirForce has everything that the hardcore racer wants, with non of the associated weight.
Using an air spring system with positive and negative springs adjustable to give the ride you want, Pace have added a thumb operated lock-out lever, crafted out of fine quality aluminium.
Pace call it “unrivalled performance and quality for the dedicated cross-country racer”
