XS forks have narrower legs that accommodate smaller wheel and tire sizes than XE forks. They are also lighter than XE forks, which are potentially designed for a rider racing on a Junior-Expert XL/XXL frame.
Cutting a steerer tube is optional, but typically not required.
No. You must use the stem lock provided with the fork, or an equivalent expander plug (i.e. Box One Carbon Headset). Use of a star nut is prohibited and voids the warranty for this product.
Forks are exactly what my son wanted. Light durable and makes the bike look amazing.
