COLUMBUS FUTURA DISC 1-1/2” Fork (RTP - Ready To Paint)
The Futura fork line is the pinnacle of Columbus Carbon Lab research & development. Taking advantage of the newest technologies and standards, Futura Disc was designed to meet the needs of riders seeking a road racing disc-brake set-up. Braking performance and feeling are significantly improved by the discbrake system: with the capability of mounting 160mm disc rotors, Futura Disc ensures unbeatable performance, even in the most challenging weather conditions, offering a braking capacity that goes above and beyond what standard caliper-brakes can provide. Futura’s unique design, with an 1,5” oversized steerer, has been specifically engineered to maximize stiffness and reliability during braking, providing a riding experience with increased precision and performance. The ultra-light monocoque carbon-fiber structure has been asymmetrically reinforced in the areas of major stress due to braking, as well as providing increased torsion control, both essential characteristics of a reliable fork. Finally, Futura’s curvilinear structure was developed and optimized to perfectly interact and compliment even the most modern carbon-fiber frames, as well as satisfying both the aesthetic and technical needs of new-generation high performance steel, alu and titanium bicycles.
