    lightest 27.5 100mm travel fork?

    I am looking to build a weight weenie build starting w/ a 27.5 hardtail frame and am trying to sift through the information and searching for a weight weenie 27.5 100mm travel fork. It doesn't look like RS or DT/Swiss make their lightest forks in a 27.5 size. I also prefer to avoid a lefty. I really want to build a 27.5. Thanks in advance.

    You're likely looking at a SID XX or the DT Swiss in the 1525gm range in conventional forks. The Fox Float 27.5" is around 1600 with the 15mm axle.

    Not sure why you wouldn't consider a Lefty in the 1350g range.

    I have a Formula 33. Mine is straight steerer, but without the axle (50g) and a full, uncut steerer it weighs 1495grams on my scale.

    WR Compositi has one in te 1270g range. They make MX suspension stuff, so supposedly this fork is pretty dialed.
