In 2011 when Federal introduced the Liquid fork it was one of the first bmx forks to use the investment cast manufacturing technique, and proved to be one of the most popular forks on the market. When it came to revising the design we wanted to keep the aesthetics of the original, whilst making the design more contemporary.
The brief was to make the fork slimmer and reduce the rake to 30mm, whilst allowing it to accommodate 2.4” plus sized tyres. This resulted in us using a smaller diameter crown and fork legs with a fully revised investment cast dropout. We also reduced the top cap from an H25 to an H24 thread to increase the strength of the top of the steerer tube. The end result is a modern looking, lightweight fork, perfect for street and park use.
