Good to know

There’s a summary of all the key terminology and tips to make sure you’re familiar with the vocab: FLEX, OFFSET and TRAIL…

Care
Fork bridge cleaners should preferably have a low pH value, since alkaline cleaning agents can encourage corrosion. After cleaning, we recommend rubbing down the fork bridge and other aluminium parts with a cloth and neutral preservative oil.
Trail
The distance between the wheel-to-ground contact point and the projected steering axis is known as the ‘trail’. The greater the offset – the smaller the trail, making the bike easier to handle. The more the offset is reduced, the greater the trail becomes – keeping you in your lines.
Material
In general, fork bridges are made of aluminium. At XTRIG we use a high-strength alloy especially made for XTRIG.
Steering head angle
The steering head angle is the angle of the steering axis to the ground. It is a result of the geometry of the frame and cannot be adjusted. The steering head angle can only be altered if the frame has been constructed specifically for this purpose.
Steering set-up
The range of options for adapting a bike is limited. This is of great importance to particularly tall or short motorcyclists. Bike balance is also influenced by the steering set-up as it shifts the biker’s centre of gravity.
Flex
Flex describes the blend of stiffness and flexibility permitted by the fork bridge. This is a key factor determining the way the forks work. 
Starting torque
Starting torque is measured in Nm (newton-metres). Adherence to stipulated guidelines is obligatory. Too much or too little torque can have a marked influence on the performance of forks.
Travel
It is necessary to differentiate between static and dynamic suspension travel.
Static travel refers to the distance the bike rear travels from full extension to its natural suspension limit under its own weight. According to manufacturer stats, for bikes with swing deflection the distance should be between 25 and 40mm.
Dynamic travel is measured with the mounted rider. The manufacturer recommends travel from full extension to a natural suspension position under the weight of the rider of 102mm.
Balance
The balance of a bike is all about the weight distribution between the front and back wheels.
Offset
Offset is the term used to describe how far the front axle is ‘offset’ from the steering axis. Bikes with a large offset are easier to handle. Smaller offsets guarantee steering precision.
