Published December 21, 2018

MILWAUKEE (BRAIN) — Fyxation has expanded its Sparta carbon fork lineup with the new Sparta FCR (Full Carbon Race) and Sparta QR (Quick Release) models. The new models open up the Sparta fork to a much larger audience, Fyxation stated in a release.

"We realized early on that the versatility of the Sparta would fill the needs of many riders, but the adoption across so many models has been exciting to see," said Nick Ginster, co-founder of Fyxation Bicycle Company. "The Sparta was exactly what people were looking for and allows many riders to upgrade their existing bike with a lightweight and versatile carbon fork with gear mounts, thru-axle and flat-mount brake standard.”

The Sparta QR takes the original 1⅛-inch aluminum straight steerer carbon fiber Sparta fork and makes it compatible with 9-millimeter QR hubs. It retails for $299.

The Sparta FCR is made entirely of carbon and weighs 500 grams, compared with 747 grams for the original Sparta All Road Carbon fork with an aluminum steerer. New features on the Sparta FCR include triple gear cage mounts for more bottle placement options and compatibility with the Salsa Anything Cage, and internal routing for clean dynamo hub routing. A new thru-axle design features a removable lever on the axle that gives riders the ability to remove the lever for lower weight and a cleaner look, or keep it on for access to a 5-millimeter hex wrench at the end of the lever. The Sparta FCR retails for $420.
