Intend Bicycle Components is entering what they term “The Green Age”. That’s not a reference to environmental issues as it may suggest; rather, it indicates Intend’s switch to the use of higher-end fork internals for the Hero All-Mountain/Trail Fork and the Edge Enduro Fork. Without increasing the price of either of those USD forks, Intend is upgrading the seals, shim stacks, damping pistons and crowns to make the aforementioned forks lighter, more sensitive, more durable, and more tuneable to a wider range of riders. Plus, with the addition of the Linearizer, adjustment of the forks’ air spring curve is also on the table. Intend Green Age Fork Internals

“The special shim stack configuration allows us to have sensitive damping in all positions of the external adjuster, so no matter if you ride it firm or soft, you will always benefit from a sensitive supple damping” – Intend BC. From now on, all Intend Hero and Edge forks will be sold with the Green Age seals and internals at no extra cost to the customer. Cornelius Kapfinger and his team have spent the last 1.5 years developing a new shim stack for their long travel forks, the goal being to “find the sweet spot for comfort riders and racers”. The external adjustment now offers a wider range of damping characteristics, allowing the rider to find a soft setup or a firm setup, without having to strip the fork down and install a custom shim stack.

The piston itself is updated, too. […]
