Carbon Fork

After an accident in October, and the news my mate's carbon steerer catastrophically failed on him at speed whilst in the middle of a busy high street, I've decided I should replace my carbon forks (4 year old, 12,000 miles Reynolds Ouzo Pro's).

Question is, what would you recommend as a replacement? Obviously my budget is for a like for like replacement and I mainly use the bike for fast group rides with the (very) occasional road race, therefore I err on the side of comfort over stiffness.

Are the Ouzo Pro's still my best bet?

Thanks everyone.

  • Ouzo pros are decent forks but you should consider the alpha Q GS10 i have them on my best bike and i think they're excellent - a good balance between stiffness, comfort & weight.

    Thanks Mike, I must admit though, I much prefer curved forks to the straight bladed variety Alpha Q seem to do. Might be all in the mind but they do tend to feel less harsh.

    Someone at work suggested the Easton EC90 SL's anyone used them?
