    Is it carbon vs aluminum?

    Is the Cannondale Slice Ultra All-Conditions fork comprised of aluminum or carbon?

    From the specs (390 gram!) and the fact that it seems to appear on frames from
    $1200 upto >$3000 and that cheaper bikes have aluminum forks, it would have to
    be primarily carbon, possibly with carbon steerer in the higher altitudes and al or
    steel steerer in lower price models. Oddly steel doesn't add a lot of weight to the
    fork, presumably because this is an area where engineering safety rules. If you
    want a lite fork you go to carbon steerer. Steve
