Strength:

light, tough, looks great, rides awsome

Weakness:

expensive

great fork, little pricy, AWSOME RELIABILITY. WARNING TO ALL THE OTHERS THAT adjust the supension YOU ARE MORONIC. YOU ALL SET TO 110% AND CASE THE LANDINGS AND YOU EXPECT THE FORK TO TAKE THE ABUSE.
this fork is by far the best ive ever used. even the pro's at whistler thought it was a dope fork

Strength:

Nice and light, and unlike previous boxxers I have tried, they ramp up well. I came from a Monster T, and this fork is almost as buttery, and way more responsive.

Weakness:

Stickers. Why does every boxxer have cheap stickers that peel and fall off. I also wish they would include an intergrted stem like marzocchi does

One of the nicer forks I have ridden. I was warned aout the turning radius being low, but found it to be fine. Ramp up is good, and very responsive. Only thing that I would change is a flat upper crown to lower the front end, but this is a personal pref.

Strength:

Light, 8 inches of travel, Sexy looks, axel functions well. Integrated stem optional. Easily adjusted.

Weakness:

I have bent two of them, and broke one fork lower. All in pretty extreme conditions though, and I am not affraid to ride it still. I choose performance and light weight because they have a good warranty.

Sick fork, If you race DH or just like to pin it at the resort or local hot spot, get one. The new team is very similar.

Condro   Downhiller [Jan 31, 2006]
Strength:

Easy to set up, Smooth looks, light weight.
Mine is supple over small bumps, and hardly ever bottoms. This fork makes me confident to try big lines.
Unlike previous years, mine has yet to blow a seal, even through race weekend after race weekend.
Direct mount stem capabilities is definately a plus as well.

Weakness:

I had a bad crash and twisted my fork, but after losening the clamps everything came back in alignment.

The 5th Element and the Boxxer compliment each other well. I have my shock at the recommend settings from Santa Cruz with my rebound opened just a bit, and my fork's compression is all the way open and about 45% rebound, other than that stock oil and springs.
I am right at the weight setting for the stock fork so it was a snap to set everything up. Maybe 3 minutes.
If you are looking for a sleek, light weight fork to be your racer's edge this fork is for you. If you aren't out trying to win world cups on your local trails, the price tag might be a bit high, but performance is valued on all skill levels and trails.

Benoit Paquet   Downhiller [Aug 08, 2005]
Strength:

Plush 8" of travel, very strong and will handle anything you throw at it! I weigh 250pounds and it handles well!

Weakness:

Bushings, original springs that come with the fork are for kids! Should be able to choose spring rate at this price!

Highly recommand but be ready to baby it as it is a very high maintenance product as is anything that's made for performance!

jamie kay   Downhiller [Jan 09, 2005]
Strength:

Looks good, Rides well, lots of tire clearence, amazing down hill product, can also be used for jumping

Weakness:

Soft springs, but can be equalized with harder ones, expensive

I highly recomend this product, i did a 8 foot drop off on a triel and it handled it very well, but my back suspension did not. i dont recomend people with weak frames to buy this, or people that dont jump or downhill, i recommed this for any triel rider and any person that jumps or downhills
