Fyxation has released two new editions to the Sparta fork line-up, opening the fork use up to a larger audience. First, is Sparta QR, which takes the original 11/8″ aluminum straight steerer carbon fiber fork and makes it compatible with 9mm QR hubs. The Sparta QR retails for $299.
Second is Sparta FCR, a full carbon version of the original Sparta that weighs just 500g and comes with a few extra features. The FCR features triple gear cage mounts for more bottle placement and is compatible with the Salsa Anything Cage. There is also internal routing when running Dynamo Hub and a new thru-axle design which features a removable lever on the axle, offering the ability to remove the lever for lower weight or keep it on and utilize the 5mm hex wrench at the end of the lever. The Spart FCR retails for $420.
We have not had a chance to fondle these two items or put them to the test, but you can find them at a local bike shop just head here.
