LEFTY OCHO

The all-new Lefty Ocho. Simply the most advanced, smoothest, most precise-handling ultralight XC fork ever made. Built to challenge. Built to win. Built for Believers.

The best XC suspension fork in the world. Believe it.

See the Light

With its single-crown structure, the all-new Ocho is one of the absolute lightest XC suspension forks in the world.

The Smoothest. Period.

When it comes to smoothness, Ocho stands alone. Fewer friction-causing bushings and seals than any other fork. The supple new Chamber damper. And the new Delta Cage evolution of Lefty's revolutionary needle bearing telescope assembly. It all adds up to the smoothest fork ever made.

Race-Tuned Stiffness

Ocho is the stiffest lightweight XC fork in the world, tuned for unprecedented precision and control on even the nastiest World Cup courses

The world's first single crown, single-sided suspension fork, for singularly impressive performance. Rather than being spread thin over two legs and a full crown, Ocho focuses all of its material on just one side, giving our engineers unprecedented control over how and where the fork flexes.
Don't bind. Roll smoother than ever with the new Delta Cage version of Cannondale's legendary needle-bearing telescope assembly.

Where traditional forks slide on four sets of tight-fitting, friction-generating bushings, Ocho slides on three, smooth-rolling packs of needle-bearings. No sticking, no binding. Just incredibly smooth suspension action, no matter how hard you push it.
Ocho's three-sided needle-bearing system creates a triangle-within-a-triangle interface between the inner and outer legs, which prevents them from rotating relative to each other for crazy-precise steering. Traditional forks, on the other hand, have round tubes sliding inside other round tubes for, well, less steering precision.
All-new self-bleeding, heat compensating, high flow damper, with external compression and rebound adjust. Smooth, supple, spike-free damping in all conditions.
