Strengths:    consistent even after 35mins harsh enduro downhill like, taking jumps after jumps after jumps, or whatever you can do. compression adjustments really do the work. very noticeably light (if you come from zocchi's). very stiff=control tuneable, fit cartridge is very predictable so at 30mph downhilling it feels very, very reliable.

Weaknesses:    some would say pricey, i would say "you get what you pay for"

Bottom Line:   
coming from an era of openbath tech, tested this awesome fork for about 9 months, i throwed everything at it, bikeparks at 30mph, jumps after jumps after jumps, uphill pedaling, and it always behaves in the same way. hard to bottom it due to its hydraulic bottom out circuit, really tunable and serviceable unlike marzocchi (sorry, it's the truth), easy to maintain. it's stiffness is what you notice a first when you go donwhill, and that it's just pure control, i loved this fork, it is a reliable product.

Strengths:    Smooth and consistent. The best riding 160mm fork I've ever ridden.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
This fork rocks. Kashma and the new seals make it smoooth. Dampening is effective and the compression adjustments make a noticeable difference. Air springs can't compete with coil for small bump with consistent mid stroke. Get it while you can, it's discontinued in 2013.
