Product Description If you’ve ever had your headset come loose on your threadless fork, then you’ll see the benefits to the new Phoenix TLC Phorx (Thread, Lock, Compression) scooter fork. Phoenix Pro Scooters designed TLC (Thread Lock Compression) to address those riders’ complaints about SCS and HIC. This new design is unbelievably simple and easy to use, it’s very light and it doesn’t come loose, according to the guys that designed it. Threads on the inside of a Top Cap engage with the threads on the fork. When you tighten the clamp on the bars, the threads "Lock" together.
Phoenix TLC Phorx, a unique pro scooter fork made by Phoenix Sports (a leading pro scooter company based in the US), is an ultra strong yet light-weight, one-piece, solid T6 aircraft aluminum fork. The Phoenix TLC Phorx comes with a top cap and an integrated (built-in) starnut machined into the top of the fork, so it’s easy to use with SCS and HIC. This Phoenix threaded lock compression fork is designed with a 10mm off-set that for many riders, “feels just right!”
Phoenix TLC Phorx Specs:
• CNC Machined from solid billet 6061 T6 Aircraft Aluminum
• Built-in machined starnut, so you can use with any SCS or HIC system.
• Anodized and Laser Etched
• Available Colors: Gunmetal
Tom Floyd, owner of Phoenix Pro Scooters says, “The TLC system is simple; We took our existing 1 1/8” threadless Phorx and simply threaded the top ¾ of an inch of the steer tube. Then we created a Top-Cap that has internal threads and an outer shoulder so the cap applies even pressure to the headset top-cover and to serve as a stop for the bars to seat against. To install you put the headset crown race on the fork, install the fork normally and screw the TLC top-cap onto the steer tube of the fork. The TLC top-cap has a full 1 ¼ OD so it is big enough to grip with your hand. You simply screw it on and tighten to set your headset adjustment. Most riders can put enough tension on the headset bearings to make the fork spin slow (tight). The TLC top-cap also has 4 slits in it so you don’t have to worry about aligning them to the bars. Once you have the TLC top-cap on and tight, you put on the bars and tighten the clamp. This
is where the cap becomes Locked; The slits in the cap run up through the threaded section of the cap and when you apply clamping pressure to the threads they become fixed (Locked) in whatever position you have them in. The only way for the headset to come loose is to unthread the cap, which would mean your bars would have to turn counter-clockwise. You don’t have to
constantly re-torque the clamp bolts and you don’t have to tighten them like a gorilla to keep the cap Locked.”
