Searching, but can't come up with anything. It's not a cannondale fork, I can tell you that much.

Looks like a Alpha Q CX fork
Success is how far you you bounce back up after being knocked down

It is no AlphaQ.
That fork looks like a 4ZA from the decals
(that's Ridley's in house brand).

it is a ridley (4za) python fork, ridley has bought the license from alpha q to make a straight fork(because one season before every pro had alpha q forks on their bikes).
franzoi bought the ridley forks because his cannondale ones were damn heavy(around 8,5 kg the complete bike)

So what you're saying is the 4ZA forks are ridley made copies of the Alpha-Q's? Anyone seen a price on them? Is there a big difference?

Samu, any ridley dealer should be able to get you one of these as they come with their cx framesets. I don't have an online source though. It doesn't look that impressive in person but it works good and all the pro's seem to use it. (You even get this fork with a C50 cross frameset :? )

It would be nice change for ti-fork because I have had them so many. But new ti-fork looks also slimmer now....price will tell ti or carbon... :D
