Looking For A More Compliant Fork.

I'm riding a 2019 Niner RLT RDO. I find that the rear of the bike and front of the bike are out of balance. By that I mean the back of the bike feels much more compliant than the front. I guess that is to be expected when the fork has no rider wt. limit and I weigh 155 lbs. I've replaced the stem with a Redshift Shock Stop stem and that has helped. I'm wondering if there is a more compliant fork out there? I'm also looking for a fork with more rake/offset. I have some minor toe overlap with a 38 mm tire on the front which will be more marked with a bigger tire. Forks under consideration include ENVE's G series gravel fork, Parlee's gravel fork and the 3T Luteus II Team Stealth fork. Do any of you have experience with these forks in comparison to the Niner fork? Any other forks you might recommend for my consideration?
