Quality Forks When You Need Them
Only fully tested and approved materials are used in the manufacture of Cascade forks. Guaranteed materials together with fully controlled processes result in forks that meet or exceed all national and international standards (such as ISO2328 and ISO2330 and ANSI ITSDF B56.11.4) with regards to mounting details, load-, fatigue- and impact-tests.
Every Cascade fork is crack tested on all welds and in the critical heel area, while our global quality system offers full traceability throughout the entire production history of each fork manufactured, from raw material through to final inspection. Each fork is stamped with manufacturer’s identification, specified capacity and load centre, week of manufacture and production works order number. This traceability together with our strictly controlled processes, ensure that only forks of the highest quality reach our customers.
