Strengths:    Light-weight

Weaknesses:    Adjustability
Eats travel quickly
Pedal bob

Bottom Line:   
The Ario R is your bare bones, entry level RS air shock.
The shock only has rebound adjustment causing you to eat through your travel very quickly - even with properly set PSI.
It doesn't feel very responsive. Sometimes mushy even after tuning the rebound.

I will say in its minimalist nature, it's very reliable. I'm running a 2011 and have only done a seal overhaul once.
I would not recommend this shock after learning what works for me. I will be looking to upgrade the shock with something that has compression adjustment.
