ENVE's Rim Brake Road Fork is in a class of its own, offering a level of durability and strength other ultralight carbon forks just can't touch.
This is made thanks to a proprietary molding process which allows ENVE to produce a fork that's composed of 100% molded carbon fiber. From steerer, to crown, to dropout, it's all one piece -- no co-molding, gluing, or drilling. The refined shape balances functionality and performance with structural integrity, meaning that the Road 2.0 is designed to deliver an outstanding ride quality and unyielding durability, all while maintaining a design that's easy on the eyes.
The ENVE 2.0 Road Fork is available with a straight 1-1/8" threadless steerer. Both forks feature a 350mm steerer tube length, 40mm, 43mm, and 45mm rake, and 367mm axle-to-crown measurement. Each will clear a 700c tire up to 28mm wide.
350 gram claimed weight. A compression plug is included.

I installed this fork on my Cannondale CAAD9 after a bad crash cracked the steering tube on the stock fork (which had a bit over 16,000 miles on it at the time of failure). While I was at it, I also took the opportunity to tweak the rake slightly (from 45mm to 43mm). I had heard lots of good things about the ENVE 2.0, and the price was right, so decided to give it a whirl.
It's been about 1.5 months and 900 miles since installing it, and I am in love with this fork. Every bike I build from now on will get this fork. It seems to have found the stiffness-to-weight sweet spot. The reduced rake, of course, means that entering a turn requires a bit more intent, but this fork holds even a hot turn with confidence, and descending at high speed produces not even the slightest bit of wobble.
My only complaint about this fork is the compression plug. I like this particular design for the most part (and I've used an essentially identical plug on a Ritchey carbon fork on another bike), but would like it a lot more if it ended further down into the steering tube to provide additional clamping support for the stem. In this particular installation, I ended up using my previous compression plug which does provide more clamping support, but I kept the ENVE plug in the parts bin for future use if the opportunity arises.
Bottom line This fork looks and performs fantastic. A, would buy again!
I purchased the ENVE fork to replace the fork on a 2006 Cervelo R3. It matched the specs of what I needed and is an upgrade in terms of performance and--unexpectedly--tire clearance. Everything is as you'd expect from ENVE: robust construction, great fit and finish. Everything installed easily and has been excellent on the road.
I'm commenting only on the build quality, as Michigan has been inhospitable to road bikes since installation of this winter purchase. But compared to OEM carbon steerer forks, the seamless, one-piece nature of this fork stands out. The absence of glued bits has to be insurance against unpleasant separations.
