Can anybody steer me in the direction of aftermarket road forks with wide clearance? (Non disc)

I currently have 3t funda forks on my titanium, bike. With 26mm tyres on ENVES, any rock that gets picked up is dragged on the underside of the fork.

Alternatively, my Allez Sprint has a lot more clearance.

I've searched the internet, but a lot of threads are old, and I'm wondering whether there are new players on the market.

The Ritchey forks used in the Road Logic have clearance for 28 (old) or 30mm (new version).

Enve 2.0 clear true 28mm (measured, not indicated) as well.

I used Deda Blackfin on my Colnago CLX - they took 28mm Conti GP 4 Seasons with PLENTY of room to spare for the mud of Paris-Roubaix. :D

Whiskey #7 fork (painted uncut 391 grams) will clear 35mm http://whiskyparts.co/forks/no7_rd_plus ... reach_fork. It's the same fork on http://allcitycycles.com/bikes/mr_pink
You don't even need mid-reach caliper. Standard Shimano 6800 or 9000 will clear ~35mm tires with BDop offset brake holders http://www.bdopcycling.com/BDop%20Offset%20Holders.asp

I think the new Columbus futura will have more clearance, maybe 27? I'll have one to look at hopefully soon.

This fork clear 28mm. This is far from being wide. If they introduced this ~ 10 years ago, then yes, we could call it "wide". 28mm clearance is standard on modern road bikes.
