Date Reviewed: April 12, 2007

Strengths:    Works well if you do light trails or ride on skate parks or if you do some dirt jumping. Very reliable for me anyway

Weaknesses:    After awhile they start to seize up a bit *i fixed this with some oil* and a small squeek when i pre loaded but after somke time this went away

Bottom Line:   
realy good i have done some pretty big gaps and drops on them and they have never failed me.*i am soon putting new marzocchi drop off 3's on my bike*
If you like a reliable and pretty capble fork then thay are for you
i wouldnt buy them if i downhilled all the time

Submitted by Joel Tree a Downhiller from Townsville

Date Reviewed: October 12, 2006

Strengths:    good fork for park and some dirt jumps,they are also good for light trails.

Weaknesses:    preload adjusters don't do anything so don't bother touching them. You can twist them as much as you want and they wont do a thing, oh and the preload adjuster nobs also sieze up and snap off really easy ( mine did anyway)

Bottom Line:   
they are a good fork if you want to do some park or dirtjump riding, but if you want to do some downhill or xc riding/racing you should look at somthing else.

Submitted by Peter a Downhiller from Woodbridge

Date Reviewed: September 2, 2006

Strengths:    Best Bang For Buck fork out there in my opinion, put hours a day on it, at skate parks, and local trails, got the 100 mm model and it hasent bottomed out yet, and it can take a lickin and keep on tickin' it good for dirtjump and moderate freeride (and im a heavy rider!)

Weaknesses:    STIFF! riding the light trails is like riding with a rigid fork, and there is no small bump absorption (but makes up for that when taking larger hits)

Bottom Line:   
if you are low on cash yet need a durable fork this is your best choice, it easily beats out all entry level forks from marzocchi, rock shox, and manitou and has impressed me so far, im going to stick with sr suntour for my next fork and pick up their extreme freeride fork the rux with 150 mm travel

this fork is for dirtjumpers and skate park riders mainly buy can be used on trails

xc riders and extreme downhillers would not benefit from this fork

Submitted by brian selmer a Downhiller from laramie, wyoming, usa

Date Reviewed: July 27, 2006

Strengths:    light, pretty cheap

Weaknesses:    crown, stanchion tubes

Bottom Line:   
i snapped the crown in half going really fast, kinda hard to enjoy forks you can't trust.
after that, i broke the warranty forks; snapped the stanchion tubes in half, (snapped forward, away from me) got knocked out. (18 ft wallride)
get this if you don't plan on feeling freefall, and stick to strictly xc, and don't go fast.
They were easy to get to the top of the hill, but if you enjoy going downhill as well; stay far away!
