I am in the process of building up a new light weight 1 X 10 fully rigid MTB and would like to see what others have done with their hardtails.

Not sure what fork I will be getting for the build but really the Trigon Disc only seems the way to go.

I had my Pedal Force MT down to 13.13 lbs with the Trigon fork before but this was as a single speed. I am thinking that I will be doing the same sort of build once again but this time with a 1 X 10 instead and with disc brakes. Mabye XO discs if I can find them for a good price.

Well I think the fork debate on what to get is settled.

I have the build down to 23.5 lbs currently with shocks. I am thinking that the Trigon is the way to go. Just installed my carbon cranks with carbon spiderless 32t chainring and new X0 11/28 cassette (going on road bike for Gran Fondo this weekend), X0 rear shifter and X0 rear derailleur.

So there are some good weight savings still to go.

Have to find a source for some good light weight disc brakes.
