Our suspension-corrected fork, complete with mounting points, so you can carry more on your next off-road adventure.
Our SEEK 480 fork, originally titled BP15, was built to complement the original GMX and our UpRock MTB. It has been tested heavily in bikepacking races, including Race to the Rock. The SEEK 480 is suitable for hardtail 29ers with a head tube that allows tapered steerer forks. Or any drop-bar all-terrain monster X bikes.
Featuring 3 x 12 mm M5 mounting points on each blade, the SEEK 480 can accommodate anything from extra water bottles, our Rocket Pooches, or any other micro pannier or fork-specific bag. However, please keep in mind that it is designed to carry a max weight of 6 kg (3 kg/ blade). In addition, the SEEK 480 can accommodate a 29 x 2.0-2.4” tyre.
The SEEK 480 axle to crown measurement is suitable for replacing a 100 mm 29er suspension fork, saving you weight when the suspension isn’t required, and without compromising handling on rough terrain. The skewer comprises a simple and easy 15x100 mm bolt-up thru-axle design with a rotatable locking nut to ensure optimal clamping force.

|Will the Seek 480 fork work with my frame?||The fork has a tapered 1 1/8th"-1.5" (28.6-39mm) steerer, we use this steerer type on all of our forks and 44mm head tubes on all Curve frames. It may work with your frame, but you may have to change your headset or headset bearings to make it work. Please have a professional bicycle mechanic fit your 29er BP fork.|
|What hubs can I use with this fork?||The Seek 480 fork is designed for 15 x 100 thru axle disc hubs. It also fits 12mm hubs with 21mm OD when used with a 12-15mm expander.|
|Can I run a front rack?||Yes, but please have it installed by a professional bicycle mechanic and ensure some of the rack weight is taken by the handlebars. ie: a Wald basket mount.|
|What is the maximum recommended spacer stack I can put under my stem?||We don't recommend any more than 30mm below your stem, and suggest putting a 3-5mm spacer above the stem to ensure precise compression and ample clearance of your stem cap.|
