Strengths:    Weight, demping of shocks

Weaknesses:    Not very stiff

Bottom Line:   
It's an amazing fork. My quake air weights 400 gram more, and I can feel the difference. My bike is much lighter than before the SID. Only weak point is the stiffnes, but it works for me, because I get used to it.

Strengths:    Very very light, looks good, several ajustments to get the perfect ride.

Weaknesses:    No lock out. Takes several rides to adjust settings. I'm a light rider (175lbs) and I get a lot of forward flex from the stem down, but not a huge problem.

Bottom Line:   
This is an awesome racing shock, can't beat the weight. If your a heavy rider you may want to consider another shock, due to it's forward flex.

Date Reviewed: October 26, 2005

Strengths:    Light adjustable and stong

Weaknesses:    after 2 months of use it started losing travel

Bottom Line:   
its a bit tricky to dial in but once set its good to go after 2 months I lost about 20mm of travel, tore it appart and put new oil in the dampener and put it together agian. after that it was fine. aparently you arnt supposed to let the air below 20 psi in the pure delite, EVER. something about the IFP (internal floating pistion)will get pushed up limiting the total travel. any ways dont let the pressure get below 20 psi in the pure delite and youll be good to go.

Hi all, Im looking to put a new CSU assembly on my 2004 RS SID team. I would like to know if I can buy the CSU for the Pilot instead of the SID with no problems of compatibility.

Anthem Advanced SID fork pressure?

Got to ride my new Anthem today for the first time. I ran the rear shox at 175 psi and started with the fork at 80psi. I weigh 185 in riding gear and had sag of a little less than 20% on the fork and 30% on the rear shox. I noticed after warming up on the first trail I had used all the available tra ... Read More »
