Has anyone got/ridden a Kinesis Pure CX fork? I can only find press releases rather than reviews.

I'm looking for a light(ish) cx fork to replace the stock Cannondale fork on my CX9.

On paper, it looks ideal. 480g and with a hole in the crown to mount a brake hanger.

Grateful for any opinions.

Road it with a csix2, great fork, but when a friend had one in an 4t it was shocking for break judder, weather or not that was his break set up? He was using cheap canti's and I was running trp mag euro x's.

It may chatter without a fork mounted cable hanger, but it works chatter-free with one. I just bought a pair for my second 'cross bike this spring and so far very pleased. At least with the Kinesis you have the option to fit a fork mounted brake hanger, wheras most light cross forks don't have the option :cry:
