The Wound Up fork designed for cyclocross competition.
Cyclocross. Off-road with no suspension. Prepare to be destroyed. Unless, of course, you're riding Wound Up's Team X filament-wound carbon fiber fork. This beast is in a league of its own.
Team X for CX. A natural selection.
For the brutal demands of a CX course, why wouldn't you choose the Team X cyclocross fork? Naturally, you're going to want Wound Up's round fork leg geometry and the crosswoven composite matrix created by the Advanced Composites Inc. filament winding process. You're going to love the way that this fork handles rough terrain. The Wound Up Team X fork is, after all, designed and manufactured by a company that makes critical aircraft components for several high-profile aerospace and defense projects involving companies such as Boeing and Airbus. We build the Team X on the same equipment, with the same precision, using the same manufacturing technologies, as we do our aerospace structures. If we can craft a component that meets and exceeds ultra-stringent aerospace requirements, we should be able to make the world's most durable, best-performing cyclocross fork. And we do.
Rough sport. Smooth fork.
Cyclocross is unforgiving, but your fork doesn't have to be. The filament wound carbon fiber composition of the Team X fork endows it with optimal strength and torsional rigidity, giving the Team X superior resistance to deformation. Its supreme lateral rigidity stabilizes your turns and channels your kinetic output into your drivetrain instead of leaching it into the ground. This translates into more steering control, more power out of the saddle, and less jarring from the rough terrain. With your skull considerably less rattled, you may even form a lucid thought or two as you charge some hellish descent. For example, how glad you are to have the Team X working for you, instead of for the guy getting his brains jellied behind you.
A CX fork like no other.
Wound Up's Team X cyclocross fork is the only filament wound CX fork on the market. The Advanced Composites Inc. filament winding process involves overlaying continuous carbon fiber filaments under high tension in a crosswoven matrix designed for maximum stability. Other cyclocross forks, created with other manufacturing methods, lack the specific material profile that only filament winding can create.
Top of the cyclocross food chain.
Because of its unique formation, the Team X has an evolutionary edge over other cyclocross forks. Its brute strength and agility create an advantage that almost seems unfair. But, hey, nothing is fair in the history of evolutionary competition, either. In cyclocross, just as in nature, you always want to race—and win—another day.
