Strengths:    light

Weaknesses:    hard to tune with delicate air psi. factory settings as described on leg are way, way wrong. and only so smooth, no more than my 2006 tora it was supposed to upgrade.

Bottom Line:   
it is a fine fork. i am disappointed because i expected it to be better than the tora and it is about the same. cannot tell much difference.

Strengths:    light weight, tapered steerer is rigid, super smooth travel, remote lockout, and comes in 26/29, QR/15mm maxel

Weaknesses:    it goes through the travel fast. i have it at 15% sag and it sends the o-ring sag adjuster just shy of the crown every ride.

Bottom Line:   
its the reba's twin sister that grew up hotter and thinner. great bang for the buck
