    Don't know exactly which one you mean, but i found this one.
    Not an WCS version, but a PRO.

    I know you probably already have purchased your fork at this point, but if not hold off. Syncros has an all Carbon version coming out. It's claimed at 580g for the weight.

    Or the Niner carbon fork at 550g...

    I just happen to have installed one on my 26 inch singlespeed this week...

    Oh,in the niner's case, it's post mount.

    I think ritchey does sell 29er carbon fork but at a pro level not WCS. I was going to buy the niner but have now decided suspension due to the rocky terrain on where I ride the most. Plus, I'm thinking of doing enduro and marathon races. I have been testing rigid steel fork for the past 6 months now and its been really good, fun and challenging but since I'm going to try long distance races I have opted for suspension fork. I know its not weenie but its ok.
