Weaknesses:    -

Bottom Line:   
For this price it is light ( about 1700 grams ) and really good working, I waight about 70 kilos, so the pressure in my Epicon is 70 psi, if you want harder give it more pressure.

Strengths:    Plushness is superb when dialed correctly. Super stiff and sturdy. Can take our local nasty single track with 2 ft. drops
easily.


Weaknesses:    All I can think of is the graphic design. Sr Suntour should fire the one responsible for designing the graphics on this fork.

Bottom Line:   
0ne of the best fork out there regardless of amount.

Strengths:    Sturdy
Awesome built
Good looking


Weaknesses:    None at all

Bottom Line:   
This is possibly the best fork for the price. I don't really like the remote speed lock on the other forks because I don't want another lever on the handle bars, but this fork is really really spetacular. The feel of it is just to convincing that it will be able to handle 10 ft drops. It had no problem handling 5 ft drops and it's just so sturdy.

I recommend this fork to all the riders out there that loves a good ride of light-medium trails.
