Today I got a Fox Float 34 Factory CTD... fork that is 2000g + 15mm axle. 2000g is too much for me as a weightweenie and I'm planning to change it for next year. But to what?

It's a Trek Remedy 9 27,5" bike that now is at 11,7kg with Sram XX1, some Tune parts and so on. Will change the wheelset too and want to save at least 1kg on fork and wheels.

Looked at DT XMM 140 27,5", anyone know if it's good? Or is there any other light options?

Lefty? My EXM 150 TS 26", and XMM SS 120 29" are both great forks, too. Can't go wring with either brand.

SID is not available in 140mm 27,5".

Lefty isn't so light in that size either.

Formula and Magura forks are in 1650g range + 50g for the axle.

Other one is DT Swiss that's on your list.

Personally I'm a big fan of DT Swiss forks, and they are generally very good weight vs stiffness.
Do it Cerro
