Date Reviewed: September 1, 2014

Strengths:    Very light and stiff with reasonable dampening for price point. Solo Air trumps a coil spring fork. Reliable so far with no issues in the first 1000 miles.

Weaknesses:    The quality of dampening is where they made up the cost of good materials on this fork. Also lacks the travel chart on the upper tube, so you have measure it to see if your bottoming. Plastic rebound adjustment knob instead of aluminum.

Bottom Line:   
Overall an excellent entry level air fork. Setup is easy with an air pressure chart on the fork. Has 5 clicks for dampening control and have mine on the forth stiffest. I originally had this fork on a 2012 Trek Wahoo and was an extreme improvement over the Suntour fork in stiffness and ride quality, but it's 3x the price so that's to be expected.

Rebound Adjustment Knob Barely Moves - 2014 RockShox 30 Gold TK SoloAir

I'm hoping that I'm just missing something obvious here.. but the adjustment knob barely moves on this brand new fork. Maybe 1/8" or so. Have any of you encountered this? I purchased this via amazon from an overseas seller... so I guess I'm SOL when it comes to LBS or Sram support.Read More »

Rock Shox 30 Gold TK Solo Air or 2014 Marzocchi Corsa LR Fork

A friend suggested that I post this on MTBR. I have a older 26 inch hardtail and would like to know what people think about the above mentioned forks. Both cost approximately the same, between $340 to $370. Opinions and comments on these two forks appreciated. Thanks.Read More »
