Strengths: Amazing fork! Lightweight, Stunning, Plush and Doesn't dive while you climbing the narliest steep ascent you can find
Weaknesses: Low speed bump maybe is a tad bit stiff I am a lightweight rider so I guess that could be the issue too. Lockout isn't rigid fork feeling as maybe DT
Man oh man, I usually don't review stuff. I have tried all kinds of forks, believe me. I even got fixated on a Magura for a few years but when I made the change to this fork, wow I just felt I became a better rider because of it. My times sky rocketed and my confidence was boosted. This a pure racing feel fork, not bouncy or stiff but a good balance. I find the recommended pressure to be way over the top, I give it about 70psi for 140lbs and that works for me. It is plenty stiff while cornering and the XX damping feels good not as I imagined it to be at first, since the lockout is not 100% lock, there is a bit of bob but nothing major.
