Stratos S-8 2003 Front Shocks

S-8

A work of industrial art and MTBR.com Choice Award winner, the S8 is the king of inverted forks! Beefy, jet-black 35MM stanchions give 7 or 8 true inches of oil-bath, buttery-smooth travel with a virtually bottomless feel. A 3-spring stack in each leg gives the S8 nearly infinite tuning possibilities for both your weight and riding style. Crown design offers a full 90-degree turning radius.

Strength:

EVERYTHING. looks, i have the older model which is gold and it looks so nice with the fork guards and new silver seals. it preforms however you want it to. i use the same settings for big hucks as i do for my downhill riding. Very plush, is completely tunable just by adding or taking away oil. SIMPLE! im 15 and i can rebuild them in about 1 hour flat.

Weakness:

the bottom axle mount is cracking from extensive amount of times of taking the front wheel on and off. pf. nothing else.

this fork is extremely amazing. so amazing that youl just have to go out and buy one. super strong. i voided my warranty of my frame so i could put these forks on. yup. super cool. i would buy another pair in an instant if i was buying another dh rig. yup. super cool.
