#!markdown I believe it. The area of the fork that would be the crown-steerer tube interface (except that it is a one piece unit) is heavily machined/relieved. The lowers are also sculpted to maximize stiffness:material. That said the crown stanchion interface is definitely beefed up and the stanchion tubes are fairly thick (see tear down photos). Please note that this isn't a complaint/concern. The RXF 34 isn't close to being the lightest fork in its class but the performance is excellent, build quality out of the box was some of the best I've seen, and I have no complaints about stiffness. If reinforcing the crown/stanchion interface resists creaking at the press fit and performance longevity continues to be excellent I'd gladly pay the very small weight penalty.
