A top-of-the-line aluminium aluminium fork has seen its prices jump to nearly $4,000 from $1,000 a year ago, making it the most expensive fork on sale at this time last year.
Cuisinart, the maker of the fork, said the stainless steel fork would be available for sale in India for Rs. 4,300 and the aluminium model would cost Rs. 1,600, but the latter price was lower than the Rs. 2,800 it is selling for in the US.
The stainless steel and aluminium forks are both made by aluminium manufacturer Alcoa, and they come with their own bespoke steel casing and steel teeth.
The aluminium forks have a lower price tag because they are designed to withstand the strain of an intense ride.
The aluminium forks from Cuisinart and the company’s aluminium fork are the most popular fork on the market in India.
Cuisex, the other aluminium fork maker, is currently selling its aluminium fork for Rs 3,000 and it is also the cheapest fork available in India at Rs. 3,400.
Aluminium is a versatile material that can be used to make almost all types of fork including forks, steerers and tyres.
In addition, aluminium is used for various automotive applications.
Aluminum is also used in the manufacture of aluminium alloy forks, but there is an increasing demand for aluminum alloy forks.
The price of the aluminium fork was driven by the increase in demand for aluminium forks, according to a report by the Times of India.
The report said the aluminium price of a standard aluminium fork is Rs 4,000 to Rs 5,000, while aluminium alloy fork is priced at Rs 3.50 to Rs 4.50.
This suggests that Cuisinet and Alcoas aluminium fork will likely remain the most affordable forks in the Indian market.
