Strengths:    Stiff
Easy to set up

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
For now this has to be one of the best air forks ever made. For a 36 160mm fork it's light, but still stiff. It's easy to set-up 100% and adjusting to trails is just as easy. Have a 2010 Solo Air Lyrik on its way so I'll see if this fork can hold on to its crown as the best 160mm air fork out there

Strengths:    Easy to set up. Stiff. Plush. Great through technical root and rock sections.

Weaknesses:    Bit tall on EXTREME steep climbs (but i knew that would be).

Bottom Line:   
A perfect fork for all types of trail around here. Can be pushed as hard as you like - and much harder than I'm prepared to go.

Strengths:    stiff, plush, very adjustable, easy wheel removal. Good hard hitting fork. light.

Weaknesses:    None yet.

Bottom Line:   
From day one this fork has been great. It has been the most responsive fork I have had yet. It almost seems like it works better than the older vanilla 36 I had. About a month ago I scratched the hell out of the left stanchion. I ended up sanding the rough edges and filling it in with clear nail polish. It leaked a little but seems to be holding up great. It still feel out of the box new and it has been a year. I would recommend this fork to any all mountain riders and DH riders. This fork is very capable in rough terrain.

Strengths:    AWESOME - 160mm of useable travel. Plush, fully adjustable, and stiff where it needs to be (I have the 20mm through axle).

Weaknesses:    None so far, other than once you get used to this fork - body armor is a good idea.

Bottom Line:   
Awesome fork, I can't say enough good things about it. This fork makes you lazy though, meaning you won't be pulling up to go over those bumps anymore. Just point and shoot, no extra effort required. And all those drops you were afraid of, not anymore..

Would I recommend it? Yeck ya!
