I test rode a Ridley CrossWind with the renowned 4ZA fork. Carbon steerer, flexed more than I thought a cross fork should.
Most carbon steerers flex a little bit. The ones that dont have staggered bearings size (madone, SL2).
Carbon is designed to flex in a designed direction and be stiff where needed. Have a good shop check it out.
But its probably the nature of the beast.
