Columbus Futura Disc Carbon Forks FUTURA DISC
The Futura fork line is the pinnacle of Columbus Carbon Lab research & development. Taking advantage of the newest technologies and standards, Futura Disc was designed to meet the needs of riders seeking a road racing disc-brake set-up. Braking performance and feeling are significantly improved by the discbrake system: with the capability of mounting 160mm disc rotors, Futura Disc ensures unbeatable performance, even in the most challenging weather conditions, offering a braking capacity that goes above and beyond what standard caliper-brakes can provide. Futura’s unique design, with an 1-1/2” oversized steerer, has been specifically engineered to maximize stiffness and reliability during braking, providing a riding experience with increased precision and performance. The ultra-light monocoque carbon-fiber structure has been asymmetrically reinforced in the areas of major stress due to braking, as well as providing increased torsion control, both essential characteristics of a reliable fork. Finally, Futura’s curvilinear structure was developed and optimized to perfectly interact and compliment even the most modern carbon-fiber frames, as well as satisfying both the aesthetic and technical needs of new-generation high performance steel, alu and titanium bicycles.

Oversized clearances and spaces, grants the compatibility with knobby tires up to 40mm, able to face the most demanding off-road conditions. If used in wet conditions, adventurers and commuters can benefit of Futura’s capability to host fenders, thanks to its integrated hidden eyelets, maintaining enough clearance to roll up to 35mm tires even while using mudguards. Whether on-road or off-road, dry or wet, disc brake guarantees performance and reliability: designed around the latest flat-mount & thruaxle standards, Futura Gravel grants the possibility to host up to 160mm rotors, for a very powerful braking experience. The tapered 1-1/4” steerer optimizes riding stability, matching the benefits of oversized lightweight sections to the capability to absorb and map even the most impervious trails, while, in terms of aesthetic, matches pefectly both the carbon-fiber as well as steel, alu and titanium frames, with standard or oversized tubes and dimensions. Finally, the 380mm axle-to-crown fork height, ensures a lower center of gravity, enhancing stability and proportions on a wider range of frame sizes and geometries.

Columbus Mud Disc Carbon Forks MUD DISC
Mud, competition, adventure. Mud Disc is the fork Columbus designed for the advanced cyclo-cross racers, as well as for the gravel-minded adventurers, in search of the most extreme off-road conditions. As alternative, and alter-ego, to the Futura Gravel model, the Mud Disc has been developed for the riders that want to use a post-mount disc-brake solution, in combination with quick-release wheels. Important characteristic of Mud Disc is its enviable tire-clearance: with 397mm axle-to-crown air, Mud Disc allows the use of extra-wide tires, up to 42mm, even featuring ultra-deep knobby design, still granting relevant clearance and ability to get rid of the typical heavy-mud of CX circuits and untraced paths. The oversized and tapered 1.5” head is guarantee of stability and reliability even in the most demanding conditions; the T500S carbon-fiber construction enhances the lightness of its structure, and the strategic external-routing simplifies maintenance and assembly.

Columbus Hiver Carbon Forks HIVER
A tribute by Columbus to the epic Velodrome d’Hiver (winter velodrome), the Parisien temple of world-class competitions, this road fork is dedicated to the tenacity and commitment you need to train hard, every season. The Hiver is a fork designed principally for winter training, and/or for use in wet weather conditions. The geometry of the Hiver, developed with a solid racing attitude, has evolved slightly. The axle-to-crown distance has been increased, increasing vertical wheel clearance, allowing riders to use fenders or mount larger tires. These new options ensure you will be able to face all the atmospheric and grip conditions, regardless of how wet or uneven the terrain could be. In fact, Hiver can be equipped with many types of classic three-bolt fenders available on the market, this thanks to the threaded eyelets located near the dropouts. The Hiver is designed for use with long-reach caliper brakes.
