To replace the B4SL changes include:

Alloy versus magnesium body, alloy bolts, etc etc... is 10 % stronger and doesnt need that maintenance like the sl...only 20 grams more weight.

...and it doesn't corrode (the main cause why Formula dropped the Mg calipers pf the SL).

Is this your bike? If yes, what fork is this?

I haven't heard of corrosion before just setting them up is a nightmare compared to say Hope....bleeding is a lot simpler but you pay for the weight.
Not my bike I would imagine its someones in the lovely country of Italy.

But the new Mono Mini from hope must weigh next to nothing now? And surely be lighter than this?
Not like other boys.....

I don't know moonshine I've not seen the new weights for the Hope yet.
Do you have any further info?

The new "mono mini" is supposed to be 10-15g lighter than the original although I haven't heard anything concrete. This makes them ~365g.

Still heavier than the formulas although I wouldn't be surprised if the weight of the hopes is actually lighter than expected.

.....can't wait!
.....but it still has to work!
