Bearclaw Bicycle Co just announced the Ramhorn Gravel+ fork designed for big-tire 650B bikes, drop-bar 29ers, and “high speed exploration,” according to the Michigan-based company. Adding to that, “it’s built to withstand extreme bikepacking adventures,” which seems appropriate considering it can fit wide trail 29er tires or monster 27.5″ semi-slicks. “We designed it to be 35% stronger than test standards require. Most importantly, it maintains a [standard gravel] 405mm axle-to-crown length while clearing 27.5 x 2.8 and 29 x 2.4 tires. It also has plenty of clearance for low knob 27.5 x 3 and 29 x 2.6 tires.”
We have a review of Bearclaw’s Thunderhawk in the works; our test model had a Ramhorn on it which stood up to Miles’ long and rugged test, including the Julian Bikepack Challenge. Find the full specs and photos below.
