Suspension of Disbelief Lefty Ocho

Simply the smoothest, most advanced, most precise-handling ultralight XC fork ever made. Built to challenge. Built to win.

The world’s first and only single crown, single-sided suspension fork. Lefty Ocho is smoother and stiffer than any other ultralight XC race fork on the market. Which means more control, more pinpoint accuracy, and more point and shoot, lay-off-the-brakes confidence, for more speed, in more places, more of the time.

SMOOTHER. STIFFER. FASTER.

The Best XC Fork in the World.

So precise

More Info

Ocho is the stiffest lightweight XC fork you can buy. Better yet, its unique design gave our engineers unprecedented control over exactly how and where the fork flexes, for the ultimate in precise-handling, take-it-to-the-limit control.

So light

More Info

With just one leg, Ocho is one of the lightest XC suspension forks you can buy. Climb faster. Accelerate quicker. Fly higher.

So smooth. Rather than sliding on bushings like all other forks, Ocho rolls smoothly on three connected sets of needle bearings to keep the inner leg from rotating within the outer leg. No friction, no stiction, just the smoothest suspension action available anywhere.

Chamber damper
A self-bleeding, heat- compensating, high-flow damper, with external compression and rebound adjustment. Smooth, supple, spike-free damping in all conditions.

UNIQUE DESIGN. PRECISE ENGINEERING.

Single crown design

Ocho’s one-of-a-kind single leg, single crown design not only saves weight in the most obvious way possible; it also delivers uncanny steering precision and control. By combining two legs’ worth of material into one leg, our engineers could overbuild certain areas for stiffness and strength, and reduce material in areas where a little flex is desired. The result is a fork with the stiffness to go, and the give to flow.

The right choice for any bike - if you’re serious about XC, the Lefty Ocho will take your performance to a whole new level. Its tapered steerer and single crown design make it an easy upgrade for virtually any modern XC bike. All you need is a compatible front wheel and an appetite for speed.

“You probably want to know if ''pretty good'' means that it's better than a Rockshox SID or a Fox 32, right? Well, I think it is. The damper and air spring are both top-notch, the chassis is as stiff (or maybe a touch stiffer) than other weight-conscious forks and, most notably, the action in those awkward, clutch situations really is better. ”
