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 use.
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.
