Rigid forks and suspension forks for mountain bikes
MTB forks for off-road cycling
Mountain bike forks serve as a cushioning of impacts due to unevenness at the front wheel and are therefore beneficial for your riding comfort. With the right fork damages on both the wrist joints and arms as well as the spine can be prevented. In general, there are two different kinds of mountain bike forks. The stiff fork weighs between 750 and 1200g, whereas the suspension fork is heavier. Also the suspension forks are more costly than the stiff kinds. However, suspension forks offer a much better riding comfort.
