Strengths:    Light, stiff, smooth, looks great in black

Weaknesses:    Remote works great but a little bulky, quite expensive

Bottom Line:   
Just as stiff as my Tora SL yet weighs well over a pound less including the remote, and has far superior action. Looks great into the bargain. This is my first fox fork and I'm impresssed. The remote is a little bulky on the handlebar but so far its action has been flawless. The fork eats up bumps with aplomb and remains torsionally stiff even at high speeds under hard braking with a 203mm rotor, remarkable considering the low weight.

Strengths:    Stiff, smooth love air adjust springs.

Weaknesses:    Lockout remote.

Bottom Line:   
Remote lockout takes up a lot of handlebar space. My lockout
remote quit working during the first couple of rides. I cut it off my bike and am going to see if I can get a standard version RL top piece using the existing cartridge...

Strengths:    Buttery smooth travel, Stiff Chassis, Useful Adjustments

Weaknesses:    The remote lockout interface to the top of the fork is designed in such a way that it cannot easily be removed. Unlike other remote lockouts, this will not work without the trigger attached.

Bottom Line:   
This fork is amazing, when paired to this bike in particular it creates a great cross country package. I haven't used a fork with this amount of travel for xc racing before, but the smooth ride and light weight of this fork have changed my mind.
