Strength:

Great for jumping. absorbs the needed to help make it easier

Weakness:

i found the shocks to freeze up or not work when it went below zero(canada)needs slightly more for tricks

a good thing to use but i wish it would contract just slightly more

Strength:

Does what it is supposed to. irons out the bumps and softens the landing from jumps. Haven't experienced bottom out ever and no leaks or problems so far.

Weakness:

Adjustment could be a bit more precise but that's no biggie

Great forks for the keen rider on a budget. Will tackle most intermediate terrain and out perform the average weekend warriors abilities. I have dropped in from 3+ feet and not experienced bottoming out or poor recoil. no leaks unlike zokes zones I had a few years back that lasted 2 rides before failing completely. Almost as good as Judy's but a fraction of the price.

Strength:

These forks came on the new diamondback outlook and overall i was very pleased as these are clearly the best forks for a cyclist in the 150-250 price bracket

Weakness:

May bottom-out on large drops but so far they havent and i have been off at least 4ft ramps and these have held up

Excellent value for money and i great buy for a begginer/intermediate cyclist looking to take on tricky terrain

Strength:

Reliable thus far, and it's taken a beating. Works well for XC trails and moderate drops. Relatively smooth throughout the travel. Does the job, what can you say?

Weakness:

Bottoms out on bigger drops (I'm a big guy 200+lbs). Just 75mm of travel. Heavy, but so is my bike. I squeaked until I took it apart and cleaned it; since then, it's been all good.

My next bike will have a better fork, but this suntour has treated me well. You can do worse for $80.

Jon   Racer [May 31, 2008]
Strength:

Strong, good travel, adjustable

Weakness:

weight

The fork is a very good fork, it doesnt bottom out on me, I weigh 175, and have dropped some good distances with it. My only concern is the weight, it is a little heaveir than I would prefer. I would be using my rock shox carbon fiber fork, but it does not have disc brake mounts. It is definitely a great shock though, does the job well, there is very little torsional flex as well so steering is tight. All around great fork, if I was still racing, I wouldnt use it only because of the weight.

Devinci Krendell   Downhiller [Apr 08, 2007]
Strength:

Extremely strong, light, huge travel, air coil, suntour.

Weakness:

None!

I replaced my original fork on my Sunday, because I needed bigger travel for my big downhill race. I am so glad I did. This fork is a tank! I weight 213 pounds, but this thing held up perfectly! I was not worried the slightest when the 10 ft gravity drop approached. I flew, and them the guys told me I had won! Strong fork, light, and huge travel always wins. I am never replacing this thing!

nick johnson   Weekend Warrior [Aug 02, 2006]
Strength:

The shocks are very soft and comfortable, its good for only riding on the street. matches bikes colors and looks good kinda

Weakness:

Bottoms out too easily and way to soft for someone over 140. If you jump over a 1 foot thing it will bottom out. the adjustablity sucks too.

it sucks if u weight too much
