2009 AFR Fork Owner's Manual - Specialized Bicycles

DETERMINING STRUCTURAL AND BRAKING WEIGHT LIMITS1. Find your bike in the Bike Model / Rider Weight Table.2. Lookup the cargo weight limit and the max weight per CEN braking standards of the bike model.3. Determine the rider weight, which includes all riding gear.4. Determine the cargo weight, which includes the weight of any additional accessories.5. .Substract the rider weight from the recommended max weight. The result is the amount the rider is allowed for cargo weight, up to the cargoweight limit prescribed for the bike model.EXAMPLE: HARDROCK PRO (Max Weight Per CEN Braking Standards = 300 lb / 109 kg.

All Mountain• CONDITION 4: Bikes designed for riding Conditions 1, 2, and 3, plus rough technical areas, moderately sizedobstacles, and small jumps.• INTENDED: For trail and uphill riding. All-Mountain bicycles are: (1) more heavy duty than cross country bikes,but less heavy duty than Freeride bikes, (2) lighter and more nimble than Freeride bikes, (3) heavier and have moresuspension travel than a cross country bike, allowing them to be ridden in more difficult terrain, over larger obstaclesand moderate jumps, (4) intermediate in suspension travel and use components that fit the intermediate intendeduse, (5) cover a fairly wide range of intended use, with models that are more or less heavy duty. Talk to your retailerabout your needs and these models.• NOT INTENDED: For use in extreme forms of jumping/riding such as hardcore mountain, Freeriding, Downhill,North Shore, Dirt Jumping, Hucking etc. Not for large drop offs, jumps or launches (wooden structures, dirt embankments) requiring longsuspension travel or heavy duty components; and not for spending time in the air landing hard and hammering through obstacles.• TRADE OFF: All-Mountain bikes are more rugged than cross country bikes, for riding more difficult terrain. All-Mountain bikes areheavier and harder to ride uphill than cross country bikes. All-Mountain bikes are lighter, more nimble and easier to ride uphill than Freeridebikes. All-Mountain bikes are not as rugged as Freeride bikes and must not be used for more extreme riding and terrain.Gravity, Freeride and Downhill• CONDITION 5: Bikes designed for jumping, hucking, high speeds, or aggressive riding on rougher surfaces, orlanding on flat surfaces. However, this type of riding is extremely hazardous and puts unpredictable forces on abicycle which may overload the frame, fork, or parts. If you choose to ride in Condition 5 terrain, you should takeappropriate safety precautions such as more frequent bike inspections and replacement of equipment. You shouldalso wear comprehensive safety equipment such as a full-face helmet, pads, and body armor.• INTENDED: For riding that includes the most difficult terrain that only very skilled riders should attempt. Gravity,Freeride, and Downhill are terms which describe hardcore mountain, north shore, slopestyle. This is “extreme” ridingand the terms describing it are constantly evolving.Gravity, Freeride, and Downhill bikes are: (1) heavier and have more suspension travel than All-Mountain bikes, allowing them to be riddenin more difficult terrain, over larger obstacles and larger jumps, (2) the longest in suspension travel and use components that fit heavy dutyintended use. There is no guarantee that extreme riding will not break a Freeride bike.The terrain and type of riding that Freeride bikes are designed for is inherently dangerous. Appropriate equipment, such as aFreeride bike, does not change this reality. In this kind of riding, bad judgment, bad luck, or riding beyond your capabilities caneasily result in an accident, where you could be seriously injured, paralyzed or killed.• NOT INTENDED: To be an excuse to try anything. Read Section 2. F, of the Bicycle Owner’s Manual, p. 12.• TRADE OFF: Freeride bikes are more rugged than All-Mountain bikes, for riding more difficult terrain. Freeride bikes are heavier andharder to ride uphill than All-Mountain bikes.Dirt Jump• CONDITION 5: Bikes designed for jumping, hucking, high speeds, or aggressive riding on rougher surfaces, orlanding on flat surfaces. However, this type of riding is extremely hazardous and puts unpredictable forces on a bicyclewhich may overload the frame, fork, or parts. If you choose to ride in Condition 5 terrain, you should take appropriatesafety precautions such as more frequent bike inspections and replacement of equipment. You should also wearcomprehensive safety equipment such as a full-face helmet, pads, and body armor.• INTENDED: For man-made dirt jumps, ramps, skate parks other predictable obstacles and terrain where riders needand use skill and bike control, rather than suspension. Dirt Jumping bikes are used much like heavy duty BMX bikes.A Dirt Jumping bike does not give you skills to jump. Read Section 2. F of the Bicycle Owner’s Manual, p. 12.• NOT INTENDED: For terrain, drop offs or landings where large amounts of suspension travel are needed to help absorb the shock oflanding and help maintain control.• TRADE OFF: Dirt Jumping bikes are lighter and more nimble than Freeride bikes, but they have no rear suspension and the suspensiontravel in the front is much shorter.KidsBikes designed to be ridden by children. Parental supervision is required at all times. Avoid areas involvingautomobiles, and obstacles or hazards including inclines, curbs, stairs, sewer grates or areas near drop-offs or pools.4
