Riding along hilly trails where some bumps and smaller obstacles, such as rocks, roots, or depressions, may be encountered. CROSS COUNTRY riding does not include jumps or “drops” (riding off rocks, fallen trees or ledges) from any height. These forks must be used with tires specifi cally designed for CROSS COUNTRY riding, and disk, rim or linear pull brakes. You should only attach generators and racks, if any, to the designated mounting points provided on the forks.
This riding style is for skilled riders, and involves steep, aggressive slopes, large obstacles, and moderate jumps. Freeride forks should be used only with disk brakes, and those frames, wheels and other components specifically designed for this riding style. The disk brakes must be attached to the designated mounting points provided on the fork. Never make any modification to your fork when attaching any equipment.
