Strengths:    low maintenance, good working, lots of set-up controls and look lovely on nearly any bike you put them on.

Weaknesses:    I wouldn't really say there is a weakness. people say they are expensive but with a name like fox you can expect pure quality.

Bottom Line:   
I've got a set of these forks on my flow myth 4x bike and they are superb! I've had no problems with them and they seem to just soldier on through the ruff stuff. I use them for 4x/dj/xc and I've also done some light dh and they've handled really well and from the reviews that I have read they all sound the same. Overall great fork and Value for money!

Strengths:    Consistency in performance, low maintenance, seals are fabulous, Light and responsive.

Weaknesses:    Wish it came with a remote lookout lever

Bottom Line:   
This fork complements the Spez Brain Fade rear shock set up perfectly on my Epic. It is a great XC fork. Some of the complaints I've read are from mtb'ers using this for crazy all-mountain apps... Hey, like they say, you need to get the right tool for the job. If you want to race/ride fast, traditional XC, this fork is perfect.

Strengths:    Nice and light for racing and super plush for techy descents, also, it has a great lockout.


Weaknesses:    Nothing!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bottom Line:   
All you people who don't like this fork are wrong, and it's probably because you don't know how to set it up properly! The easily adjustable rebound is great and the lockout is really easy to use. It performs really well on everything from smooth, fast, open sections to tight, rooty, techy, sections and I would recommend it to trail riders and XC racers alike!

Strengths:    Gives me full travel, light, everything works on the fly with a quick flick. Stiff, relatively lite.

Weaknesses:    Lacks the "C" of the RLC. Only available as OEM. WHITE. The proposed Air Pressure rates and SAG is way off course..needs much more experimentation.

Bottom Line:   
A very good fork...certainly heavier than the SID Race/teams, but gives me 20mm more travel and no flex. It can handle aggressive XC duties with a smattering of AM. The Scott Spark's head angle adjusts with the rear shock's SAG via tracloc @ Lockout-80mm-110mm...thus making the fork SAG change. AS an OEM..it's great, when you wear it out..get the RLC, I will.

Strengths:    Stiff, good finish, rebound adjustment works fine

Weaknesses:    Adjustability, uses effectively only about 40mm of travel, dire damping characteristics.

Bottom Line:   
Horrible Fork. My 2005 Skareb did a better job.
Problem is, that I can't figure out a setup below 30% SAG which does't kill my wrists in fast downhill sections, although under normal conditions 10% SAG would suffice by far...

by the way, the defualt pressure values given by Fox are a poor joke.

Will be replaced by a reba dual air sooner or later.

Strengths:    Stiff
pretty light
New post mount disc


Weaknesses:    Lack of adjustability
brake dive
Not that light


Bottom Line:   
As a first time Fox owner I am not impressed. I think that I would like the RLC because of the adjustable compression and lockout blowoff. As this is an OEM only fork if you are thinking of getting on off of ebay spend the extra money and get the RLC or spend less and get a manitou. If you are thinking of getting a new bike and this comes on it see if you can talk your way into having it upgradded with the purchase.
