Strengths:    Solid and stiff. Very progressive dampening with huge range on adjusters. No need for two step Lyric if bike built for 6 inches. This ones cheaper and lighter. No leaks and very low pressures in air chamber.

Weaknesses:    none, it even has post mount brakes now.

Bottom Line:   
Perfect for a 6 inch heavy duty trail bike. Floodgate only good for road climbs, but good if you forget as it will blow through. Set up very fast (give it a few runs then pump the pressure up 15 odd psi) adjustments have huge range like marz forks. very stiff, light enough to still flick around, heaps of mud clearance, and maxle axle so easy and now you can put the lever in any position

Strengths:    Strong,stiff,light for what it is. Maxle 360 is cool

Weaknesses:    none yet

Bottom Line:   
This fork is great, tracks well, stiff,strong, not to heavy. After I took the time to set it up I loved it. If you are going up something steep I found it climbs better to keep the fork active. When the MotionControl is on the fork wants to deflect up off of rocks. The dual air would not have this problem. Other than that it is great, money well spent as far as I am concerned.

What's the deal with my Lyrik Solo Air?

Hi there, I've got a Lyrik Solo Air that I'm sussing out some problems with, so I'm just after a bit of wisdom. As far as I know, it's a 2009 170mm Lyrik Solo Air. It apparently was rebuilt a couple months before I bought it, with the usual upgrade to 2010+ dampers. The guy I bought it off got hi ... Read More »

Solo -air Lyrik and Avalanche cartridge - any thoughts?

Hi all, I recently installed a 2012 Lyrik RC2L (solo-air) on my 5Spot...and I hate it. I took off a Revelation RLT-Ti (dual-air) that was butter smooth, just not very stout. The Lyrik feels like garbage in comparison. It's stiff, but requires a ton of sag for small bump compliance and will neve ... Read More »

Rock Shox Lyrik Solo Air lowered to 150mm - on which model years can this be done?

Does anyone know exactly which model years of the Lyrik can be lowered to 150mm by adding the 10mm spacers to the air spring? I think 2010 and 2011? I know 2012 couldn't since you had to swap baseplates to change the travel. Looking to buy one but need to be sure. Thanks!Read More »
