Although it has been available to the public for over a year, the Dimond Superbike was always incomplete without its own fork. The company has been selling the bike with the 3T Funda since launch. Today, a new option has been unveiled, a 'Super Fork' for want of a better term, that integrates cleanly with the shape of the bike, hides the front brake cable, and was designed specifically to work with our own Omega X brake. A magnetic cover shields the brake and cable from the wind, and ensuring easy access to brake internals. The fork legs are exceptionally wide, far wider than anything else on the market. According to Dimond, this was originally intended to improve zero-yaw drag, but in fact ended up having a more noticeable effect on higher yaw. The fork will be available as a $1200 a-la-carte option for existing Dimond customers, and also available with new framesets. At $1200, it's a very expensive part for what is essentially a standard-construction fork (no external steerer, no integrated structural parts) plus magnetic cover. But Dimond owners will likely be thrilled at the chance for a faster and cleaner front end, heretofore a bit of an achilles heel for the bike. The cheaper 3T Funda build will also be available.
