The World Trials Championship constitutes a highly important test-bed
for technical experimentation, where each single technical solution adopted
is required to be effective and winning, even in extreme conditions of
Paioli Meccanica, entering the segment in 1989, has always covered a role
as undisputed leader. In fact, it was the very first to introduce important
novelties such as the Upside-down version, the mixed hydraulic/mechanical
inner system, and all adjustment systems. A marked ability for innovation
so developed that Paioli Meccanica still remains the absolute number one
technical reference point, thanks to forks which can boast matchless qualities
of sliding, fine adjustment, and placing of the suspended masses.
Top of the range
Top-of-the-range fork in this segment is actually the traditional RSU
with diameter 38 mm, designed exclusively for competition.
This fork is produced in a limited series (25 units)
and has substantial differences with respect to OEM version. It is completely
machined from an Ergal solid block, with TiN-coated and lightened inner-tubes,
springs and hydraulic calibration coming from the experiences acquired
in 1998 races.
Its main features include: axle-bracket obtained by machining and screwed
on an outer tube; the floating oil seal bushing seat; carbo-hard treated
tubing; all possible weight lightenings, inside and outside, in order
to offer maximum reduction in overall weight.
