Strengths:    -Remote Lockout
-Works Nicely
-Looks Nice

Weaknesses:    -Rebound adjustment is in a hard to reach place

Bottom Line:   
I rebuilt my 2001 Giant NRS with this shock and it has been working very nicely.
I've been riding on it for about a year now. It holds air great and has not given me any trouble.
There are not many controls to dial this shock in like you might find with other more expensive products (eg. Fox, RS Monarch). The Ario RLR gives you control over: air spring, rebound, and lockout.
I'm a cross country rider who does not stray from some technical downhill sections. For cross country and singletrack, this shock has performed wonderfully. It has made steep and bumpy descents much more managable. It also performs well when landing after small jumps, stumps, and logs.
Overall, this shock performs nicely. Adjust it once and ride :)

Ario RLR on my Trance?

I have an 09 Trance X3 with the fox float R. I love the way it feels when riding over bumpy terrain but it doesn't have pro-pedal or lock out for long extended climbs. The new ario RLR has a remote lockout which would def come in handy. Would swapping the float R for the ario RLR be a big mistake ... Read More »
