The "ride" of a carbon fork is BETTER than that of an aluminum fork ...

BUT, if the bike has FAT tires where the max tire pressure is below 85PSI, then you may not notice a difference.

The "ride" of a carbon fork is the SAME/(no better than) as that a good steel fork BUT a carbon fork will make the bike lighter by about a pound (or, more).
