Company Profile

AME has been manufacturing alpha Q carbon forks for racing bikes since 1993. Alpha Steerers are used for the forks. The lower section of steerers are stiffened by high modulus carbon fibers (carbon butting technology) and the fibers are connectively placed (carbon rooting technology) to the main body of the fork crown. The inside construction of alpha Q forks is 100% carbon. Three carbon forks are available with chromo, titanium, and carbon graphite steerers.
