Strength:

light, stiff, looks good, 80mm, good price

Weakness:

rebound could work better, started leaking oil after 2 months got really soft

when I first purchased these they were great nice and stiff and they were great for the first 2 months. During a ride in the 2nd month i heard a popping noise and oil slowly started leaking out of the rebound knob. This happend at the ed of the season. I started riding again in april this year and it was still leaking oil. The fork was getting to be more sticky and wasn't as stiff any more, It now only goes down 20mm and then it just stops and it won't move. This was probably avoidable if i just took it into a shop to get it looked at by i just never did as it stopped leaking for a while. Over all it is a good fork but just take care of it and you will be fine.

milan   Weekend Warrior [Mar 02, 2007]
Strength:

lightweight (for jump forks)
cheap (£190 payed)
reliable (so far anyway)
perfect feeling to them (x firm springs as standard)
perfect travel (80mm)
look good (all black)
relatively simple (coil and oil with rebound adjustment, nothing else to worry about)
2 yr warrenty in europe

Weakness:

crown could be thicker, not as thick as on the shermans i had before (snapped at the leg)

brillant fork for dirt jump and street and skatepark, would be good for 4x to as pretty light
havent had them that long, but these are my fav jump forks.
not too bothered if they break cause of the warrenty
bottom word; excelent!
