Strengths:    Buttery smooth travel that's adjustable. Unlimited settings. Excellent finish and super stiff.

Weaknesses:    need a tool to take the axle off. Myriad of settings can be kind of confusing.

Bottom Line:   
I'm blown away by how good this fork is. It is just super smooth. Previous to this I had a Marzocchi 55 and before that a Fox RLC. I liked them both, the Fox was bullet proof, the Zoke buttery smooth but fragile and constantly broken. The X seems to be the best of all worlds, I can't even find a plastic part on it anywhere. Plus I got the 1.5" head tube version with a 20mm through axle so it tracks about as straight as can be. Great fork.

Strengths:    -Top tier fit and finish and controls
-Respectable weight at ~5lbs
-Dampening adjustments make readily noticeable ride changes and make for easy tuning
-Stiff
-Competitively priced
-Fantastic right out of the box


Weaknesses:    -2011 model has no tool less 20mm axle
-2011 model has a higher axle to crown height compared to the competition(ive been told 5mm higher, not much).


Bottom Line:   
The Vengeance has absolutely blown me away.The vengeance is super smooth and plush right out of the box, adjustments make a big enough difference to be very effective tuning tools, the fit, finish, and controls are fantastic.

To sum it up, the Vengeance has been a disgusting value, and as far as my experience goes, the least amount of sticktion, the best dampening, and the best overall ride ive ever experienced in a long travel air fork. A++

As far as im concerned, i just purchased the best long travel air fork on the market for the least amount of cash. Really glad i got turned onto the Vengeance.

Opinions on 2013 Vengeance HLR DLA?

Hey everyone, For the last year i've had a 2011 Fox 36 Talas RLC on the front of my Chili. I have an opportunity with X-Fusion to get a brand new fork for a really great price. I'm considering getting the Vengeance DLA (travel adjust) version which is 140-170. Would it be weird to ride trails ... Read More »
