Rock Shox Recon Silver TK Solo Air Forks MID-LEVEL PRICE, HIGH LEVEL PERFORMANCE The master of the weight, price and performance equation. Recon is available in two models: Gold and Silver. Recon Gold features a stiff aluminum crown married to lightweight 32mm aluminum upper tubes, while Recon Silver with steel upper tubes is unparalleled in its class for stiffness. Solo Air Technology: An extremely durable spring system. The positive and negative air spring chambers are simultaneously filled to equal air pressures through a single Schrader valve, simplifying suspension setup while retaining the light weight and plush ride quality of Dual Air.

With this patented RockShox blowoff design, the ride stays smooth due to the small-bump compliance where unexpected hits are absorbed immediately even while locked out. TurnKey is compatible with PushLoc and PopLoc remotes. MTB Solo Air Fork Features: Weight: 2069g
Strengths: Very dependable and able to put up with abuse. very plushy feel. I have them on my 2013 Giant XTC2 and love them.
Weaknesses: well, I assume with all non-high end shocks, they are not light.
I think for the price you WILL get your moneys worth. I did my research when buying my bike and shocks were a big part of the decision. I think the RockShox Recon Silver TK Solo Air shocks are a great mix of value and reliability. I have had my bike and these shocks for almost a year now and they have been putting up with the rocky, downhill abuse on the slaughter pen and blowing springs trails in Bentonville and Bella Vista Arkansas. No problems, still plush and going strong.

I want to upgrade to a Motion Control damper in my fork. I have had different advice on what will work, should work, etc. I have been told to get the Argyle MoCO damper and it will pop right in, the one listed on Sram's site as the upgrade for the fork appears to be out of stock everywhere (discon ...
