Submitted by Bill a Cross Country Rider from Iowa, USA

Date Reviewed: October 4, 2009

Strengths:    Road and trail chatter, small to medium bumps, when locked out allows bike to rocket up climbs, and the preload setting is nice for a light rider like me (122 Lbs).

Weaknesses:    Poor at taking big hits and when it gets cold the travel decreases and it gets more rigid.

Bottom Line:   
Great value for beginners that performs quite well for riders looking for a cheaper fork that can still take a beating and keeps on performing. Dont buy it if you are doing downhill, freeride, dirt jump, or expecting a Rockshox SID or other high end fork.

Those that have worn the the Omega X1 neck brace for a while...

Any feedback after wearing it for a while? I picked mine up today, been playing the adjustments and I think I got it set more or less right. I'll have to wait until I actually ride with it. My only issue: From what I've read, most neck and spine injuries in MX or DH riding are from the head ... Read More »
