Twenty years ago, Wound Up released its road fork into an unsuspecting world.
Cycling hasn't been the same since.
Their manufacturing process revolutionized the industry in the nineties.
Wound Up designed the Road X to take whatever the road brings.
Shoot corners without a wobble.
Barely notice that rough patch.
Whoop with ecstasy at the responsive handling.
Laugh at other riders, secretly or with gusto.
Or not, depending on your propensity for schadenfraude.
Heck, we won't judge you.
It's normal to have difficulty containing yourself atop such perfection.
The Road X is sufficiently muscular for suave and confident handling, while still being as light as possible.
The optimally-oriented carbon fiber winding offers a higher torsional stiffness than other carbon manufacturing techniques.
The Road X isn't the lightest fork on the road, nor is it trying to be. It is, however, trying to be the most responsive, athletic, forgiving, rigid and stable ride available.
And safe: Wound Up refuses to endanger riders by competing in the arms race of ultralight design.
Their aim: engineer this fork to be substantial enough, without sacrificing performance.
Judging by our customer feedback, They hit the bullseye.
The Wound Up Carbon Steerer Carbon Road Fork is now made to order and has a 3 week turnaround time
THE QUALITY / THE COMPANY
So much of how a bicycle rides boils down to your choice of a front fork.
Wound Up's patented carbon forks combine unmatched lateral stiffness with plush fore and aft compliance.
What you get when you choose a Wound Up fork is precise steering and response coupled with lightning quick acceleration and power out of the saddle. Plus, the vibration dampening that's inherent in both the design and the materials used helps you conserve valuable energy throughout those long rides.
