Submitted by Rey B. a Weekend Warrior from Alajuela, Costa Rica

Date Reviewed: April 4, 2005

Strengths:    Lightweight, Good performance when full pressure on it, looks, rigidity, 3.5' of travel, aluminum stachions and steerer tube

Weaknesses:    Looses air too fast, after a rought ride it has to be pumped up again, if not, ride is too soft, response is lost and the pre-load adjustment for the spring just can't keep up (215 pound rider).

Bottom Line:   
Good for the budget minded, superior than Judy SL previous tryied. Main Flaw is the air pressure lost, but if you have a pump handy, you can always put this fork tunned up for performance every time. Will give good performance for the average XC rider, but don't even think of going BIG on this fork, and do not consider it for the everyday rider unless you have a pump handy.
