Strength:

over the short period i have owned these forks i have punnished them but to there credit i cant find faul. they are a solid fork with very little flex and comming from down OZ where the trails are very rocky and techo i feel this fork excells over the likes of the 888 and dare i say it the Dorado. They are super resonsive and feel super smooth over rocky offcamber trails. the air chamber is great for differant terain and race tracks unlike the other forks on the market you can adjust to suit..

Weakness:

none found yet

these are the most adjustable and most advanced fork on the market not just for racing and downhill but everyday riding for the every day rider. you can tune them at the drop of a hat, ride then in any situation on any track they are a light and responsive fork.

everyone should own a pair..

Strength:

Stiff, Very light, ultra sensitive to small bumps and ultra plush.

Weakness:

maxxel thru axel

This fork is really easy to set up for any type of riding. Soaks up every thing I can throw at it. This is the ultimate racing fork, but handles big 30+ foot drops easily. you won't be disappointed.

followup review..
nothing anymore..

Weakness:

lowers crack
'gate' knob comes out when fork compresses
leaks loads of oil
paint is really bad
maxxal is the worst thru axle ever

the fork works for about threemonths and then falls to pieces. rockshox serviced it every 25 hours as specified.. nothing ever worked again... i did a xc race for fun on the bike and snapped the lower on a downhill xc forks work well... this fork is a total waste of money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Strength:

excellent adjustments
feels amazing

Weakness:

tons of bushing play
maxle sucks

sweet fork, axle system sucks and the fork has had bushing play since day 1.

it gets a 4 for value since its so expensive, but i only paid $1400 CAD for mine brand new. and 5 overall because the fork is so good, im not letting the play or gay axle influence my decision

Strength:

weight,smooth,great damping, easy to setup, gud looks

Weakness:

maxxell thru axel, i like d old one

this is d best fork ive ever had. the fork's weight is unreal. the weight difference is so noticeable in the ability to handle the front end. the air sprung fork also has unique feel to it, where the fork has less vibration.

Brian   Downhiller [Jun 11, 2006]
Strength:

smooth as butter, light, really adjustable

Weakness:

pricey, high maintenance

This is a very high quality fork. On other forks I have owned, you have to turn adjustment knobs quite a bit before you feel a difference, but on this fork, each click makes a noticeable differance, which is nice. When set up correctly, which is a very painless process, it feels bottomless, yet very supple to small bumps. The only downside I have found with this fork so far is that it requires more maintenance then your evryday fork. For instance, it uses a lot less oil due to the open bath lubrication, therefore requiring you change it more often. But for such high quality suspension, it is more then worth it.

zac   Downhiller [Jan 07, 2006]
Strength:

great range of external adjustmens, easy setup. absorbes every little thing in it path, smoothest riding fork i have ever felt

Weakness:

price, but not really

this fork is great it is perfect for those dh racers, yet perfect for those who are just looking to upgrade there dh trail bike, at 6.1 pounds it doesn't hurt to ride up especially if you crank up the compresion.
