Just in at the Velo Service Course: Whisky thru-axle road disc fork.
We've been testing road discs in all sorts of configurations and the Whisky fork is the best yet. The thru-axle both stiffens up the front end and keeps the wheel from moving even a minute amount — that means the discs stay quiet, no annoying ting-ting-ting caused by a minute wheel shifts. We sincerely hope more manufacturers adopt the thru-axle for road bikes, as they have on the dirt.
Sadly, there aren't many road hubs currently available for 15mm thru-axles, which is why we're running a Giant PXCR carbon-rimmed mountain bike wheel up front, paired with a Zipp 303 carbon clincher out back. I'll post more on some excellent adventure-worthy tubeless tires to match the discs tomorrow. #cycling #roaddisc
