Strengths:    I put this on my Tallboy LTc build, and have been thrilled. The fork floats over small bumps and ruts without ever becoming mushy --and really comes alive at higher speed and in big rocks and rough terrain. For a longer travel 29er fork, the 20mm axle keeps things stiff and tight, and the steering stays precise all the time. The fork seems comfortable in slow, technical terrain, or blasting over huge ruts, through rocks and off big drops. No matter the speed or terrain, the fork stays comfortable and precise. I leave it full-open in full travel, and it climbs fine on the Tallboy.

Weaknesses:    Sram could provide a bit more info on how to tune the thing. I like knowing how to take it apart and what all the parts are, but how about info on the initial set-up?

Bottom Line:   
A great fork, and has been solid through close to 500 miles of riding.

Strengths:    Low stiction, good small bump absorption, very plush through the first 4 inches of travel . A lot of adjustability on this fork and it seemed easy to get dialed in. The 20 mm Axel helps it feel stiff considering the travel.

Weaknesses:    None that I've noticed so far.

Bottom Line:   
This came stock on my Santa Cruz tallboy LT. I was skeptical at first and was going to get the Fox 140 with 34 mm stanchions I'm glad I stuck with this. I hate to say it but this thing is much more plush than the fox 120RL that I've run for three years on my Trance 26er.

Hi all Have got a 2014 Rockshox Revelation that until 3 weeks ago was performing flawlessly. I did have one issue in which the compression piston unwound itself from the bottom of the RCT3 Damper, lost all compression adjustments and found the piston and screws sitting in the stanchion. But the ... Read More »
