Im considering getting a pair from one of my friends and i know they have like 13mm offset. does it make a huge difference? For like 3years ive ride fit blades and odyssey classics which have 33mm offset and i mostly ride park constantly. Any input/experience with these?

I've ridden a set for a little while & then i switched them out back to "regular" offset forks. TBH they didn't make a huge difference to the way my bike felt. They did make it easier to get into the balance point on the front wheel, however it also A LOT easier to loose the balance point too.

im just worried about nosediving and flipping. i have my fair share of times where i air wrong and just come straight to my front wheel, or jump to flat and nose dive and i hate flipping over my bars.

That's just it, if you tend to go otb with 32 offset, you will get there more quickly with a steeper fork. If you are keeping your regular forks, get them. Can't hurt to try.... Well, it can, haha.

They don't change anything but how fast you get the balance point. I own a pair and they're nothing special.

get them, I've had mine for a while and i got used to them on my first sesh and now they feel like normal forks but when i hop on other peoples bikes they feel kind of sluggish in tow responsive they are and i ride trails street and park and i can say that they don't make much of a difference at all besides slightly more responsive

I cracked a pair of V1's on the dropout, but my friend rides the V2's and they have been brilliant, the offset initially feels different but after a few hours you can't feel it.

This, and i hope that doesn't happen to me, i've kept everything on my bike v1 hahaha even when the V2 is cheaper of something

V1's are usually the better bet, unless you're riding anything eastern, but you'd have to be a bit dumb to do that anyway. I've had tibia cranks since they came out with no problems, i know 2 people who've cracked the onyx'.
