    lightest 140mm fork on the market-- not lefty

    Im putting together a new Knolly Endorphin build and looking for the lightest possible 140mm fork that I can find for a long distance XC/AM bike. Any suggestions? I already have a lefty and I do love it but don't like some of the excess baggage involved in a lefty so I am looking to switch back to a more traditional fork. Any good options on the market that come reasonably close to 1400g or so? My lefty is 1315g and I'd like to add as little weight as possible to this build.

    Thanks

    Not a lot of options in 140mm compared to 150mm forks.

    Rock Shox Revelation World Cup 140mm should be around 1450gms

    Revelation World Cup | SRAM

    Fox 32 Float 140mm is going to be around 1750gms

    32 FLOAT 140 FIT CTD w/Trail Adjust Bike Fork | FOX

    Magura TS8R 150mm fork is going to be around 1675gms

    TS8 R 150 Fix 26"*| MAGURA

    DT Swiss XMM140 fork with carbon steer tube is around 1650gms

    That Lefty is light! The Fox FIT RL125 on my Trance X has been extended to 140mm. It weighs 1600g with starnut and crown race but without the axle. I would go with Rev WC.

    lefty is light, true. But if you don't have a cannodale frame you probably need to add the adapter weight...
    I was interested in a Lefty too, but adding the adapter brought it over the sid for me.
