Strengths:    none

Weaknesses:    ALOT

Bottom Line:   
This fork is by far the worst fork I have ever owned. It broke within days after buying my bike. There is plastic parts inside that break if too much pressure is used, or if the section one is riding is too rough.

It is flexy, and does not hold air well. I did not like this fork, nor did I like how answer delt with the problem. DO NOT BUY THIS FORK, THERE IS PLENTY ON THE MARKET FOR MUCH BETTER PRICES AND DEALS!!!!

Strengths:    Light, Strong, and fine Geometry. Price is reasonable.

Weaknesses:    Steerer tube is very short. Braking time period is long.

Bottom Line:   
THis fork is intended for purely on Cross Country only ( tolerable on mild trails ) and is not recommended for heavy drops. You will appreciate this fork on its intended use. Its very light, air bound, fluid flow, adjustable rebound. A nice choice for those who love to race XC and the price is reasonable.
