Strengths: Almost as sensitive as Cannondale´s Head Shocks! Lighter and stiffer than Fox (how could they do that??)
Would be my first choice if I would not use a Lefty. I have tried many forks. I like Fox but Magura´s is just a bit better.

Strengths: Replaced a RocShox Tora on my Specialized and it is night and day. Shock is responsive and noticeably stiffer than the Tora. Just turned the rebound to fastest and charged down a trail with stepped ruts and it just sucked them up. Remote lockout with locked in Sag on uphills helps too.
Weaknesses: I snapped the clamp on the lockout lever and when I contacted Magura, they cheerfully put a replacement in the mail for me. I can't find anything wrong with the front fork/shock itself.
I love Magura. I have read complaints about customer service. It may have been true in the past but I have had remarkable response and care from them. Thinking hard about new MT4 brake upgrade. Because I can.
