1" carbon forks with fender clearance

Does anyone know of any 1" carbon fiber forks available with fender clearance and eyelets?

I know that Wound-Up is available thusly, but what else is out there?

I see some 1 1/8" with fender clearance but I don't seem to find any 1"

Any information would be appreciated.

Sorry, I should have mentioned 49-57-reach sidepull brakes only.

It's funny, what with the current resurgence of lugged steel bikes, (and pretty much all the lugs out there are for 1" head tubes), and what with the resurgence of "constructeur" style bikes with fenders, that there aren't any companies (yes, other than Wound-Up) who make carbon forks with fender clearance. Some people do want the light weight of a carbon fork.

Check UK sites. We have loads of audax bikes. Using audax in your search will help; mudguards are compulsory a lot of the time. I'm sure that Alpina and ITM forks are available.
