Invert is the World’s First Gravel Fork. 

Invert smoothes your ride and gives unbelievable control of your bike on rough roads, loose turns, and steep descents. It’s surprisingly lightweight, easy to use, and strikingly attractive. Until this point, no fork made for drop bars has been able to combine the smooth ride, lightweight, simplicity, and good looks into one complete package. 

Riding beyond the pavement can be rough, physically taxing, and unpredictable. Invert goes straight to the source of this problem to offer a smoother ride with more traction, both uphill and down. With Invert, you’ll be more efficient, more relaxed, and have confidence to glide over gravel like you’ve never experienced before.

Invert CS (Climb Switch, 40mm, 1113g): $1,199.99
Invert SL (No Climb Switch, 30mm, 990g): $1,099.99

Rider Benefit Focused


Invert gives your bike unbelievable amounts of confidence and control & makes Gravel more enjoyable.



Only 990g, or 2.2 lbs for Invert SL and 1113g for Invert CS.

Good Looks


Striking, sleek looks integrate perfectly with the simple lines of drop bar bikes.

Easy to Use 

Intuitive, single click Climb Switch is easy to operate while riding – even with gloves. No other complex tuning necessary.



Carbon fiber and premium aluminum construction.

Two Travel Options


30mm SL Model and 40mm CS Model.

Invert CS


Climb Switch that engages a firm setting for out of the saddle pedaling.

Invert SL



Shorter travel and no Climb Switch for a more minimal and lightweight option.

Single-Step Set Up


Just set air pressure using shock pump and RIDE. Adjust to desired level.

Inverted Design

smoothest possible operation, lightest weight, & cleanest visual integration by using a layout opposite to conventional suspension forks.


Tuned, progressive air spring balances traction with the right amount of support and is fully adjustable for rider weight.


In Fletcher, NC.



Invert CS comes with 40mm of fork travel and a Climb Switch button that when clicked, dramatically reduces the amount of fork movement for pedaling out of the saddle. The Climb Switch button is inspired by the simple click of a pen, and is as satisfying to click as the feature is to use.  

Invert SL is a more minimal and lightweight option. It forgoes the Climb Switch mechanism to reduce weight even further and comes with less travel — 30mm. This shorter option may also be preferable to some riders that want to keep their stance on the front of the bike lower.


Invert is upside down relative to the layout of traditional suspension forks. This unconventional design offered us the chance to build the lightest gravel fork possible. The main body of the fork is made with a novel, hybrid carbon and aluminum structure that is noticeably lighter and far better looking than the alternative.  

Invert SL tips the scales at less than one kilogram. That’s about 2 pounds.   

This is not a mountain bike fork.

Invert is everything you need, and nothing you don't.

"It legitimately offers improved comfort and control, and certainly expands the fun factor of a good gravel bike. It also helps that it’s a lot lighter than most of the competition and less visually obtrusive."

-James Huang, Escape Collective

Q & A

How much sag do I have to expect? Dennis asked on May 13, 2024

Hello, sag is dependent on riders set up - we recommend starting out by pressurizing the fork to 95% of the riders weight. From here, one can adjust to there liking.

Is it possible to fit a fender to the fork? Will the fork only be available in the black carbon finish and the lower legs also in black? Jason asked on May 4, 2024

Hello, we currently do not have a fender option, however, we are sure one would be able to fit! Yes, currently the Invert will be a black carbon finish.

Conventional mountain bike shock forks have a bridge between them to prevent independent compression of one side resulting in wheel/tire rub. Besides the thru-axle no such connection exists between the two legs of the invert fork. A common air chamber or connection between the two sides for the air to flow would only cause the compressed (higher pressure leg) air from one side to flow to the other and extend the leg resulting in potentially more rubbing. Is that why the maintenance frequency is so high because of the close tolerances to prevent unequal compression? Joe Schneider asked on April 24, 2024

Hello, Invert forks move the bulk of the mass of the fork to the static CSU. The only moving parts are relatively small legs and a thru axle is more than sufficient when coupled with the stiffness of the CSU to prevent fork flex. Same with a single sided air spring. In fact, most forks have the spring on one side and a damper on the other side. For the Invent SL, we have simply removed the damper system completely and still only need a single-sided air spring. A 50 hour oil service is standard for open bath suspension components like our Invert and HELM forks.

How much should it cost to rebuild this fork? Will you sell an affordable service kit? At suggested service intervals of 50 hours for fluid and 100 hours for full a rebuild, that means the fork will be out for service of some type at least once a month! That could get expensive! Joe Regier asked on April 22, 2024

Hello. Inverts 50 hour service won't involve replacing anything other than oil. Full service intervals and costs are still being determined with long term tests, but this service will be far less complicated and cheaper than any of our other suspension products. Full service info will be available once orders start shipping.
