All Box One forks are engineered and crafted using our Oversized Technology. These forks are the single most important component in the quest for bike control. We’ve moved carbon from areas of low stress to areas that handle high load. Those muscular shoulders aren’t just for looks as they are integral to achieving superior steering stiffness. When combined with Box’s other Oversized components, you’ll experience heightened responsiveness and reduced latency.
Key differences: This particular model fork is tailored for smaller racers and therefore includes a lighter weight 1 inch 7000 series aluminum steerer tube and 10mm cold-forged dropouts.

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.
