Kaisei “Continental” Fork Blades


Kaisei fork blades are strong and elegant. This is a no-nonsense fork blade that also works great on bikes that always carry a large front rack. In that case, you don’t want the fork blades to flex independently of the rack, because it tends to loosen the rack bolts. The “Continental Oval” shape fits most fork crowns available today, but not Rene Herse and Grand Bois fork crowns.

Made in Japan.


The performance of steel bikes has been perfected to such a degree that even today, steel is the material of choice for the bikes that take us on our adventures. Kaisei makes the best steel tubing in the world, widely respected for its consistent quality and perfect roundness. Long reserved for the track bikes of Japan’s Keirin professionals (who race on steel bikes), Rene Herse now offers Kaisei tubing in custom-drawn dimensions for modern allroad and randonneur bikes.
