eXcentive, the unconventional fork
The fork is an alternative to the traditional telescopic fork. Composed of a deformable quadrilateral, positioned below the steering column, this unconventional system has the advantage of reducing the braking distance, increase the liveliness of the bike and optimize the steering precision.
“Our eXcent-TTS Team achieved a real performance at the 24H Motos. The eXcentive fork is stabilized. We must now optimize the bike to save time during pit stops. Bastian Morvan, eXcent R & D engineer
Building on the success of the 24H Motos du Mans 2018, Team eXcent-TTS is now showing itself in future competitions of the World Endurance Championship. In particular, the team must continue training and optimize stand time between each relay.
Next step desired by Team eXcent-TTS: The Bol d’Or, the legendary international 24-hour motorcycle race that will take place on the Paul Ricard circuit at Le Castellet on 14, 15 and 16 September 2018.
