Strengths:    Excellent finish, high quality paint. Adjustments have a decent range unlike other companies models, weight is spot on. Rebound works effectively, PSI is abit high for their weights we've noticed across the range of bikes we have them setup on.

Weaknesses:    Traditional axle, take something like the manitou QR 20 axle and they'd be set.

Bottom Line:   
Been preforming above and beyond my hopes, is up there with the higher fox talas 36 but without the stupid price tag, hopefully we shall see more of these around!

Strengths:    The fork is very, VERY stiff. Stiffer than my Lyrik has ever been. The travel is plush and smooth. The adjustment is easy and spot on. There's not a million clicks of adjustment like on some forks. Seals clean the stanchions on each compression, and everything worked perfectly on my aggressive test rides.

Weaknesses:    Maybe the axle. I'd like to see a Maxle on these forks, but that's a small issue.

Bottom Line:   
Bottom line is that the fork does exactly what it's supposed to do, it's durable, and it's much, MUCH cheaper than the competition. It's highly adjustable. Furthermore, I can't fathom having any issues with the fork, but if you did I know that X-Fusions customer service is spot on. How could you NOT pick up a Vengeance HLR? I gave this fork a 4 overall instead of a 5 because that's all I can give it without having more time on it to dial it in. I'm sure that I would give it 5 Flamin' Chilis if I had a few days of riding on it, and could more properly adjust the fork to my weight and riding style.

x-fusion vengeance HLR long term review

it's a 2013 Veng HLR coil lowered to 160mm Good plush since day 1 and nothing is changed after a year with no service taken. I only ride once a week tho. It filters anything from small to big and sticks to the ground with good traction. You can feel the difference especially when you are applyin ... Read More »

Marzocchi 55 CR or X-Fusion Vengeance HLR Coil ??

Hi everyone, I'm ready to pull trigger for a new 150-160mm fork and my choices are either Marzocchi 55 CR or X-Fusion Vengeance HLR Coil. Anyone with riding experience on both forks and recommendations on one vs the other? I know there are many other choices out there, but I am somewhat limited ... Read More »

X-Fusion Vengeance HLR

I'm choosing between an X-Fusion Vengeance HLR air and a RS Pike 650b 160. It'll go on an heavy duty AM bike, 650b front wheeled, 7" rear suspension 26er. I'm leaning toward the Vengeance because of its presumed stiffness advantage and 20mm axle, can someone compare the two? I'm not thinking the ... Read More »

X-Fusion Vengeance HLR: Damper rebuild and maintenance

Ok guys I'm sure it's been covered, but here goes! I can't find anything on their website with regard to volumes and weights, although I did find something on PB that referenced 7.5w x 75mL. Can anyone confirm or deny this? I purchased this fork second hand from a friend who admittedly had it se ... Read More »

Vengeance HLR coil issues

I own a Vengeance HLR coil for 3 months. I love it very much but I have the following problems Damper consistency After few mins of DH, the damping force is lost, you can compress the fork very fast with minimum force. The damper, however, becomes normal again after taking a 10 mins “rest”. Tur ... Read More »
