Strengths:    Stiff and simple, Looks good, Doesnt top out and i havent bottomed out yet. Plush when the thick oil has been cleaned off...

Weaknesses:    Not much adjustibility. 20mm bolt through can ring out at the slots where you put the 8mm allen key in easily. The paint coating has peeled off around the left stanchion, now the seal is leaving a thick black oil on the stanchion and making the fork feel dead but i guess i may have accidentially scratched it.

Bottom Line:   
If i found a cheap set of them in good nick, id personally get them again. If you get a bike with them on... Ride the life out of them then upgrade. I ride xc and a bit of dh and they feel up to it. If you are a beginner and dont care about a big
name, id reccomend. If you are wanting loads of features and mega performance.. Look elsewhere..

Strengths:    Tough as nail, easy to adjust, simplicity rules and it works.

Weaknesses:    If the spring rate isn't right for you, good luck. Might be cheaper to have one custom made.

Bottom Line:   
Great fork for the price. It works, it's strong and it takes tremendous amount of punishment.

Though if you are looking for adjustments, fine tunes, look away.

Also this is not exactly a light fork, but that's not what I was after anyway, so it's not a weakness to me.

Strengths:    looks mint! action works fine and feels pretty stiff

Weaknesses:    straight off any fork that bottoms out easily when riding off a gutter has got the wrong spring in it.im aveage weight too. Ok so where do you get a spring form? searched the net and found nothing . distributor has no spare parts so ill be doing my best to send them back.
Also it mentons different levels of travel but give you no instructions on how to make the changes not even any tech manuals on the website.
Ive not had chance to ride them so my review is really limited.


Bottom Line:   
Overall i dont have a problem with the fork other than that i cant fix a simple problem or find any backup informaion of any kind . Im most likly gonna end up sending them back.

if anyone can help sort some of these issues out contact me at : mikeandlouise(at)paradise.net.nz
