    4ZA carbon MTB fork... nice!

    Has anyone had the oppotunity to use the 4ZA "Lynx" carbon fork? It really looks sweet. Claimed weight is 740g and it is V-brake only.

    Comes as stock equipment with the Ridley Cobra. Frame weight = 1290g = nice squared!

    very similar to the winwood it looks like. one of the local shops here is a ridley dealer, i'm almost afraid to ask them what that fork would cost. they tend to mark things up way to much.

    Yeah but the Winwood is over 100 grams heavier with disc tabs.

    yeah i don't run discs so id probably go with the 4ZA, the disc mounts look tacky as hell if you're not using them.

    Isn't 740g quite heavy for a high end MTB rigid fork? I have a cheap aluminum fork that weighs about 30g less with brake studs. Years ago I found my dad a Ti-dye Titanium rigid fork for about $100 and it weighs roughly 650g. Im sure the carbon gives a nice ride but the weight and price wont be great.
