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.
Selling apart my Pedal Force 18lb XC bike so Magura During SL up for grabs. Figured I'll stay on gravity oriented side of the sport.
Give me reasonable offer and save on shipping with local pickup.

what would you recommend: Should I choose Fox RLC or Magura Durin SL? Which of these is stiffer?
I'm an 85kg rider and would prefer reliability over some extra weight reductions.
Many thanks.Read More »
