Invert

$1,099.99 - $1,199.99





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

TWO MODELS

INVERT CS & INVERT SL

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.

LIGHTWEIGHT

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

I’ve got a Niner MCR 9 MCO frame without a fork. Will it fit on it? John Carothers asked on July 19, 2024

Hello, yes, looks like your Niner MCR 9 MCO will work with our Invert Gravel Fork as a 52mm lower headset bearing which allows a tapered fork to be used.

Does the fork have a max weight limit? I'm thinking of bikepacking (eg. Tour Divide) where bike/gear/rider might be 230lb. Any issue? Also, the service interval of 50/100 hours. On Tour Divide, that is going to be full service every 6 days. Would you recommend not using for Tour Divide for 300+ hours without service? Carl Gable asked on May 18, 2024

Hello, thanks for reaching out, maximum rider weight is 250 pounds on our Invert. Please email us at support@canecreek.com and we can answer your Invert Servicing question in more detail as a number of factors play a roll into this.
