Stratos S-8 2003 Front Shocks

5/5 (2 Reviews)
MSRP : $999.00


Product Description

A work of industrial art and MTBR.com Choice Award winner, the S8 is the king of inverted forks! Beefy, jet-black 35MM stanchions give 7 or 8 true inches of oil-bath, buttery-smooth travel with a virtually bottomless feel. A 3-spring stack in each leg gives the S8 nearly infinite tuning possibilities for both your weight and riding style. Crown design offers a full 90-degree turning radius.

Strengths:    EVERYTHING. looks, i have the older model which is gold and it looks so nice with the fork guards and new silver seals. it preforms however you want it to. i use the same settings for big hucks as i do for my downhill riding. Very plush, is completely tunable just by adding or taking away oil. SIMPLE! im 15 and i can rebuild them in about 1 hour flat.

Weaknesses:    the bottom axle mount is cracking from extensive amount of times of taking the front wheel on and off. pf. nothing else.

Bottom Line:   
this fork is extremely amazing. so amazing that youl just have to go out and buy one. super strong. i voided my warranty of my frame so i could put these forks on. yup. super cool. i would buy another pair in an instant if i was buying another dh rig. yup. super cool.
