CALCULATE

Vallée recommends the following easy procedure to assess the remaining capacity of a used fork:

  1. Indicate the initial capacity of the fork (1x)
  2. Identify the area where wear is the most severe
  3. Indicate the initial thickness at this specific area
  4. Measure the actual fork thickness at this specific area
  5. Input these data on the chart to obtain the wear rate and remaining capacity (see graphic)

Evaluate the condition of your forged forks
