Title says it all.. does anyone knows what is the lightest lockout fork available which will work on a Fox Fit4 fork?

This means, a lockout that can make 3 positions: open, trail, lock! Stock lockout isn't lightweight nor reliable. Scott has those twinlock lockouts but from what i've heard they're not any light either. So who knows of a better opportunity to save a few grams on a fork lockout?

thanks!

Do you mean remote lever and cable or totally new cartridge?

Yes, the remote lever only! Sorry, wasn't clear!

I don't think there is much options for that 3 position lock out. Maybe someone else could know.

Just use an old Shimano friction thumb shifter and mark the settings positions?
Or maybe an indexed one and note the 'gear' you need to use?

About 65g should get you one.

Or I have seen a road bar end shifter made into a thumby using a cut down bar end but suspect that may be no lighter or even heavier.

A bit lighter and look OK

What about DT Swiss Two in one? It is about 27g. Works with Fox as well.
