Question on the 2008 Bacchetta Giro 26 Alloy-Disc Brake Fork

This is the alloy (aluminum) bladed disc brake fork with no canti-studs.
Are there any concerns I should have about the fork?  The bike sees a lot of fast descents and hard braking.  Just want to be sure it's all good.
 
Thank you.

    I’ve used that fork on many bents. Always had confidence riding Bacchetta sourced frames and parts and never an issue in 16 years.

    This is good to know.  I believe it uses a steel steerer and that gives more confidence it will hold up.
     
    My post was inspired by a video of a Gold Rush's carbon fork failing during a ride.  Ouch.
