Fork Finding Mission - Carbon, disc brake, 1 1/8 head tube....

I have a frame with a 1 1/8" head tube and I'd like to find a fork that meets the following requirements -

1. Disc break
2. Carbon Fiber
3. Fender mount at bridge
4. Fender mount eyelets (optional)
5. I'll be running HED Belgium Plus w/ 23mm tries for approx 26.5mm tire width (measured)

Its pretty easy to find a fork that meets those requirements but all I've seen are for tapered head tubes.

Any recommendations for a fork that will meet my needs?

Here's a fairly non-elegant one that meets your criteria: https://www.bikenashbar.com/cycling/...ss-fork-ns-cyf

I asked a similar question a while back - a carbon disk 1 1/8" fork, and was given the following possibilities: Ritchey, Carver, Whisky, and Soma
Here you go: Carbon CX Disc - Carver Bikes
and here: https://www.somafab.com/archives/pro...el-carbon-fork
THere's a nice Ritchey fork but no fender mounts

I'm leaning toward the Soma All Road Fork - https://www.somafab.com/archives/pro...el-carbon-fork

There will be a surplus of space between the fork, fender, and wheel but its probably the best fit I'll find.
