The 2013 EPICON X1 is the long travel, AM, premium model fork from Suntour. Following its successful launch last year, the fork has been upgraded in several ways. Features, such as, "HOLLOW CROWN" and super light damping cartridges have been upgraded to offer better performance and more adjustability. The LO RC cartridges have also been updated to provide much better compression and rebound characteristics and new dust seals give reduced friction and improved sensitivity. The air spring has been completely reworked and, as a standard feature, the fork is now equipped with a 15mm Titanium Qloc axle. Travel lengths are available between 120 and 140mm and steerer tube options can either be 1 & 1/8th or tapered. Moreover, the fork will be available in 27.5" ( 650B ) for next season.
