From the bogs of SeaTac to the tundra of Poprad, the Team X has clawed out some of the sport's most impressive wins, including the National Championship and World Cup podium placements.
The Wound Up Carbon Steerer Team X Cross Fork is now made to order and has a 3 week turnaround time
Cyclocross is unforgiving, but your fork doesn't have to be.
Like all Wound Up forks, the Team X is made in the USA of filament-wound continuous carbon fibers embedded in a resin matrix. The fibers are crosswoven for optimal strength and torsional rigidity, giving the Team X superior resistance to deformation. Its supreme lateral rigidity stabilizes your turns and channels your kinetic output into your drivetrain instead of leaching it into the ground. As the only filament-wound carbon fiber cyclocross fork on the market, it absords shocks and vibrations better than its competitors. With your skull considerably less rattled, you may even form a lucid thought or two as you charge some hellish descent. For example, how glad you are to have the Team X working for you, instead of for the guy getting his brains jellied behind you.
Because of its unique formation, Team X has an evolutionary edge over other cyclocross forks. Its brute strength and agility create an advantage that almost seems unfair. But, hey, nothing is fair in the history of evolutionary competition, either. In cyclocross, just as in nature, you always want to race—and win—another day.
LAUGH IN THE FACE OF MOTHER NATURE
Off road racing with no suspension tends to beat you up, which is why some of the best U.S. Cyclocross riders rely on Wound Up to smooth out the bumps. The unique 'cross specific' design has been battle tested by Elite riders like Marc Gullickson and Ann Grande, from the primal bogs of SeaTac to the frozen tundra of Poprad. Wound Up forks have yielded some of the sport's most impressive results, such as a National Championship and Super Cup Overall titles.
That's why X-WOUND technology is the most advanced and automated composite manufacturing process on the planet. With X-WOUND they turn continuous filaments of carbon fiber into the highest quality composite cycling components.
To our knowledge, the Team X Cyclo-Cross fork is one of the lightest "Cross" fork on the planet.
