Strengths: Price, I paid $325 for a used one here on MTBR in near new condition (knob lockout), then found an amazing deal on Speedgoat for a new one for $349, free shipping (remote lockout)!
Easy to adjust/dial in, easy and relatively cheap to get serviced, and they work.
Weaknesses: Seems like the lockout slowly stops working after a while. I locked out one of mine to get use to riding with a rigid fork, the fork still had a slight give to it (normal), but then it had a bit more, then a bit more...till eventually there was no lockout. Paid $20 for shipping to have the fork fixed (under warranty) and now it works fine.

However, it appears the lockout portion is always on. Even with all the air out of the fork, it's still very difficult to compress it. Do I ha ... Read More »
Hi guys, I can get either of these forks second hand (Fox for 200 euro, RockShox for 220 euro - 260 and 285 USD respectively). I will be replacing my Suntour XCT V2 on my Panther mountain bike. Now I wonder which one will provide a smoother ride and eliminate those small bumps better? Both are in ... Read More »
