Strengths:    Light, plush and stiff for weight with great performing dampener. Easy to adjust and set up to preference. Great small bump for air fork.

Weaknesses:    None, other than you can't drop the travel for more comfort on long steep climbs

Bottom Line:   
Excellent performing shock as compared to my mod'ed 2-step that it replaced. Miss the no travel adjust for comfort on long, steep climbs, but gained so much on the descents with small bump, big hits and all other bombing performance that it is well worth it. Rock Shox replaced my 2-step no questions asked with this fork and could not be happier. Rock Shox custy care rules, so much better than other fork companies out there.

Strengths:    Lots of travel with a stiff cassis in a light package

Weaknesses:    Small bump performance

Bottom Line:   
For the weight this is a great fork. You lose a bit of small bump performance with the air spring but for the right bike it is worth it. I dropped 2 lbs by replacing the Marz 66 and for this bike it was a worth while trade. It isn't perfect for every ride, but if you are doing a lot of climbing but only because you love the decent this fork is worth looking at.

Strengths:    Plush, tunable, very light, smart maxle system.

Weaknesses:    slight back and forward flex with braking heavily. Compression dampening settings don't have a very wide range of adjustment.

Bottom Line:   
I'm quite impressed with these forks, they are plusher than the 66's they have replaced while being nearly a pound lighter. Still quite burly though. There is a slight flex back and forward when braking heavily but I'm probably only noticing that because the 66's had none whatsoever. The maxle system is great, makes taking the wheel off very easy. The high and low speed compression settings don't have the widest range of adjustment but they are in the sweet spot. All other adjustments are perfect and work very well.
