The Futura carbon fork range is the new premium from Columbus. Designed specifically for gravel riding the Futura Gravel is tough, but without adding any unnecessary weight.
Here's what Columbus say
"On-Road, Off-Road, All-Roads! Futura Gravel is the newest solution to the growing hybridization of roadrace and outdoor worlds, merging urban with nature, for all those cyclists in search or an all-round fork strongly declinable in contexts and uses. From white roads to single-tracks, from unpaved paths to city-scapes, Futura Gravel allows a very wide range of possible uses, thanks to its specific geometries and features. 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 perfectly 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."
