Fyxation just announced two new carbon all-road forks, the Sparta FCR (Full Carbon Race) with anything cage mounts, and the Sparta QR (Quick Release)…

We took a look at the original Sparta carbon fork in our 650b Conversion article. Today, Fyxation announced two more options in the Sparta lineup. “We realized early on that the versatility of the Sparta would fill the needs of many riders, but the adoption across so many models has been exciting to see,” said Nick Ginster, co-founder of Fyxation Bicycle Company. “The Sparta was exactly what people were looking for and allows many riders to upgrade their existing bike with a lightweight and versatile carbon fork with gear mounts, thru axle and flat mount brake standard. We have customers all around the world using Spartas on their Salsas, Surlys, Lynskeys, Konas… you name it.”

FYXATION SPARTA FCR FORK

The Sparta FCR is a full carbon, thru-axle, all-road fork with a 1 1/8″ – 1 1/2″ tapered carbon steerer. The fork features flat mount disc brake tabs, rack and fender mounts, and triple cage bosses for multiple bottle placement options or use with the Salsa Anything Cage, King Cage Manything cage, or Oveja Negra Bootlegger bags. In addition, the Sparta FCR features internal Dynamo routing and a new thru axle design with a removable lever on the axle to give riders the ability to nix the lever less weight and a cleaner look. Or, you can keep it on for access to a 5mm hex wrench at the end of the lever. The Sparta FCR fits up to a 700C x 42mm tire (700C x 40mm with fender) or 650B x 50mm Road Plus. It retails for $420.
