VORSPRUNG LUFTKAPPE COMPATIBILITY

Last update: October 2020

Important: "Model-Year" is always the year a fork was sold; for instance "2020" forks were sold as of 2019 and then were still sold in 2020 and will probably still be on the market in 2021, in the meantime "2021" forks were released in 2020 and will go the same way.
