Strengths:    Weight, large hit comliance

Weaknesses:    Fore aft flex , overdamped

Bottom Line:   
Purchased this when my Fox Prodeal was taking far to long. Intially fork felt lederhosen good until the speed picks up. I have tried all combinations of settings and can not this fork to remotely compliant. Turned up the threshhold and then the rebound to try and tune out the dive and front end chatter when on the front brake but still dives and vibrates like it had some fresh C batteries installed. It seems like the inherent fore/aft flex occurs before any damping. It chatters over high frequency bumps. I have 105 pos/neg air (dropped from 115) and it still feels way overdamped at my 180 lbs. Will try lighter weight oil to see if I can get the damping to work before the flex.

Upgrades for the Reba RLT?

I bought a (barely) used Reba 29er RLT Dual Air last summer to replace my XC32TK. The original fork was OK, but my girlfriend has a Reba on her 26" Rocky Mountain and I was so impressed by the feel of it that I found one for myself. I bought it with the intention of installing it for a trial, and ... Read More »

Help with sag on a 2013 Rockshox REBA RLT solo air on a Fantom team DS

OK I just bought a Fantom Team DS from BD. The bike came with a 2013 REBA RLT Solo Air. I'm new to having air shocks and I received no paperwork on how to set them up.
