Strengths:    Light, stiff, absurdly plush, floodgate control, 9/15/20mm axle options, remote pushlock

Weaknesses:    none that I have experienced

Bottom Line:   
I bought this fork as a self-birthday present when my old 36 finally died, and as far as I'm concerned it beats the Fox AM/Trail fork options in every way. The published weight of 3.9 lbs with uncut steerer is no lie; I believe it is lighter than the 150mm Fox 32s out there.

In my experience RockShox seals and bushings are better than those on Fox forks, and this is no exception. There is no unacceptable play in the fork. Additionally, the improved seals help keep the fork from getting gunked up and losing smapp-bump compliance. I thought I had reached the epitome of small-bump compliance when I got a Totem coil for my gravity bike; then I got the Revelation XX.

The floodgate control is an awesome thing. The handlebar-mounted PushLoc functions hydraulically, so no cables to get gummed up and stiff. The floodgate control is a knob located on the Pushloc, and serves two positively-related functions: "lockout" stiffness and compression damping. And since the PushLoc is located wherever you want it on your handlebar, it is easy to engage and disengage it very often and at high speeds or in tech sections.

Admittedly, I do not have any experience with similar Manitou, Marzocchi, Magura, or DT Swiss products.

I give it 5 Flamin' Chilis for value since it is cheaper than similar Fox products for what is in my opinion far better performance.

I give it 5 Flamin' Chilis overall since it is strong, light, stiff, super plush, adjustable, easy to maintain, and available in all 3 standard axle options.

Strengths:    Light weight 150mm,Torsionally Rigid, Maxle Lite tool-less 20mm TA, Smooth action/lack of stickion from initiation of stroke/small bump sensitivity, Feel of fork action thru end of stroke is solid and predictable will no "wallowing". Flood Gate with remote.

Weaknesses:    Lack of coherent instruction manual for tuning various adjustment features on website or written. Flood Gate...is it very useful and the remote clutters the cockpit esp if you have other remotes in place. Needs easily removable remote

Bottom Line:   
Light weight, smooth action from top to bottom, adjustability, rigid, works good right out of the box!

Strengths:    very light, plush and broken in out of the box, XLOC hydraulic lockout is pretty slick

Weaknesses:    None yet....

Bottom Line:   
Fork has nice action right out of the box. Very tuneable and can be very small bump compliant if you run neg. air pressure slightly above the positive. Gets full travel. Blackbox motion control dampening is an upgrade overt he first generation MoCo. XLOC control works very well, and despite what SRAM will tell you, will mount up on any old bar. Granted it would work best with a complete SRAM/Avid set-up, but as long as you have a 1/2 inch of bar space, it will mount up with its simple clasp. 3.6 pounds honest with steerer tube cut at 8 inches.

RockShox Revelation Dual Air XX - Negative Air Leaking?

I just purchased an used Dual Air on FeeBay. I took it out for a ride today and need to readjust the settings, but when I checked the negative air chamber, it dropped 60psi. Positive air chamber holds air. So, what do I need to do to have it hold? This is why I hate buying used.Read More »
