SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF Lefty Oliver
Why Oliver? It’s simple, really. Gravel riding has evolved with different demands than any other discipline on two wheels. It requires the stiffness and tenacity of a road bike, the strength and suppleness of bikes built for life beyond the tarmac. Oliver isn’t simply a mountain bike fork in a petite package. Oliver is built by gravel, for gravel, engineered to evolve with its ever-growing demands. We engineer Oliver with its own unique structure and damper and just enough travel to reduce fatigue in the rough stuff, without sacrificing support for snappy acceleration — this means no diving or wallowing under pressure.

Ride All Over
Purpose built from the gravel up. Where others pare down their bigger forks for gravel, we start from scratch and engineer Oliver purely with the intention of riding, all over. We achieve multi-surface ready ride quality by starting with a gravel-specific air spring that eliminates sag to keep you high in the travel for true bike geometry and pairing it with a damper built just for Oliver. On smooth surfaces Oliver sits high and provides snappy acceleration, but as soon as things get rough it quickly opens for smooth-flowing travel that reduces fatigue, boosts traction, and elevates comfort.
