From the first time we chased down the dusty podium, we’ve been hooked on XC. We’ve spent countless hours dreaming, engineering, and testing forks for the best cross-country performance on the singletrack, resulting in our flagship forks – Lefty Ocho.
Ocho is the culmination of all our cross-country desires. Its anatomy is tuned to perform with a lightweight feel, razor-sharp precision, and enviously smooth travel for taking the inside line, roasting the climbs, and closing the gap between you and the podium.

Ocho vs. Ocho 120
With the evolution of cross-country riding, racers demand more from their bikes than ever before. Some crave the lightest ride that money can buy, others favor more travel for railing the descent. We don’t think anyone should have to make compromises.
Ocho offers 100mm of super-smooth travel catered to the featherweight racer looking for the most progressive XC fork on the market. It features intensely smooth travel with advanced engineering for precision handling, even when things get loose.
For those craving a little more, Ocho 120 is purpose-built for progression. We elevated stiffness in Ocho’s chassis and tuned it for aggressive XC riding, so you can toe the line between the tape one weekend and cover serious down-country miles the next. It offers 110-120mm of adjustable travel to fine-tune to your needs.
“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."

Intensely responsive ride. We engineer Lefty Ocho with its own unique self-bleeding damper that acts as the heart of the fork. Its high flow capacity and speed-sensitive valving keeps oil moving through smoothly even when the trail gets rowdy, so the fork maintains a lively and responsive feel. The damper is crafted with heat compensation that prevents inconsistent performance caused by boiling oil when you’re riding with serious speed over challenging terrain. Compression and rebound adjustment are easy to tweak externally allowing you to tune Ocho to your exact needs. Smooth, supple, spike-free damping in all conditions.
