Strengths:    Everything, has adjustments for everything more than really needed. It jumps really well and then can climb back up the hill.

Weaknesses:    only that it is white

Bottom Line:   
Awesome fork, great for downhilling and freeriding, but if you lower the travel it is a great dj fork. The adjustment knobs are easy to grip and the stickers show what they do and how to adjust.

Weaknesses:    fork comes up very slowly when changing from 115mm travel to 160 mm travel

Bottom Line:   
This fork came stock on my new enduro, its a $4,000 bike so i guess that kinda answers the question of how much i paid for the fork. So far ive been riding mostly freeride on the bike, havent had any issues with the fork so far. Takes big hits really well, travel adjust works fine, except when going from low to high travel the fork comes up really slowly, but i dont use it in 115mm travel mode so thats not that much of an issue. Definently feels more like a freeride fork than a trail/all mountain fork but i really like it, and i ride xc on the same bike that i ride fr/dh. Ive read other reviews saying it has issues with small bump sensitivity and some other stuff, but i havent had any issues so far. ive always been a believer that theres nothing like a fox fork, but this fork might have changed my mind. First time i used it, i overshot the landing on a 6 foot tall kicker and went from about 10 feet up in the air down to basically flat concrete, and to top it off i landed nose heavy, so the fork took 100% of the force from the landing. the fork took it like a champ, i was absolutely fine, didnt even fall off the bike, just rode away. that one jump basically switched me from fox to rockshox. if i have any issues, ill post again but as of right now, im loving the fork.
