Forks! Federal Drop v2 or Demolition Elite

Create New Tag

3/31/2015 4:26 PM

My stock fit forks are bent, and I'm going to buy either the Federal Drop v2's or Demo Elites. Not to be a weight weenie but the Elites are 9oz lighter, and that makes a difference since my bike is already 26.5 pounds. A majority of my riding is on a ledge or rail so my forks take a beating. The federal ones look a lot thicker and stronger, so I'm leaning towards those; unfortunately they are a lot heavier. Any one here that has had either of these forks please leave some information for me (did they/are they holding up well? any problems with them?)... any advice is appreciated

I don't have ether one of those, but if you are looking for a pair of forks that can take a beating and is light i would highly recommend the odyssey R32's, they are only 4oz heavier than the Elites and have a true lifetime warranty.


Anything with 2 wheels and a seat will do.

And now we await the "Get something other than Odyssey forks" comments.

Talk to the shop you bought your bike from about a warranty.

Fit will probably offer you a crash replacement discount on their aftermarket Fit or S&M forks. They are usually quite solid about this.

From Fit's website:

Lifetime Warranty Upgrade
If you damage a FIT product while in use, you can purchase a replacement or an upgrade at discounted Warranty Upgrade prices for the life of the part. Products purchased at Warranty Upgrade prices directly from FIT will be covered by our 30-Day Warranty against Manufacturer’s Defects only.

The following warranty policy applies to ALL FIT complete bikes if you are the original owner and can provide proof of purchase. This warranty does not apply to handle grips or tires.

Get Cult Sect IC forks!!! Cult has been stepping up their game.

They're street as fuck...

i've never ridden them but they come in flat black, so they must be... street as fuck.

Pitchforks or Odysseys

Don't fuck with forks. People get really fucked up when forks break.
