Fork Flex Inspiration
Posted by Clayton Keim on August 25, 2016
Pursuit Fork Flex rollerskis made of spring steel is a first where flex comes from the forks without pivot points. Back in 1981 Ski-Way had produced three-wheeled roller skis with suspension forks in front. Then in the early 2000's Dynasport Dynaskates of Norway invented by Rune Doennestad used pivoting forks with springs. This design was inspiration in achieving fork flex but removing the moving parts which over time can rattle and wear out.
