Whisky Parts Co. 2013 Preview @ Saddle Drive ’12

Monday, August 6th, 2012

tf-img_1939 Showcased at the front of the Whisky booth during Saddle Drive was the new no. 9 fork. The no. 9 is Whisky’s innovative new disc carbon road/cross fork that uses a shortened version of Rock Shox’s 15mm Maxle system. The new thru axle design will help stiffen up the fork and give riders more confidence in descents and during out-of-the-saddle standing efforts. The Maxle will also help reduce the stress on the fork caused by disc brakes. Whisky forks are built in a three part layup that is purpose built to offer stiffness and structure near the thru-axle, compliance and absorption in the center of the blades and an extra solid crown design for durability and added stiffness.
