Strength:

Strong fork. I know i don't weigh much but it has never bottomed out on me. Not even of a 12 footer. Plush travel, strength, adjustability, and decent turning radius for a tripple crown.

Weakness:

Price, look around and you can get a good deal.
A little heavy but what do you expect from a tripple crown.
Tends to rebound slow when ridden in winter conditions (just like most other forks).

This is one of the best freeride forks for those who do not go big like bender and those who still like to give climbing a shot. Everyone complained about the tire clearance, I have a 2.7" gazzy jr. on it and it fits fine. Stanchions do not flex and it never bottoms out. Change springs and oil to suit your weight and you will be fine. I love this fork and would buy another one if I had another bike to put it on.

Bill, a Freerider not a
Downhiller

Strength:

Travel.
Looks.
The fact that they are Marzocchis

Weakness:

Weight.
Not enough tire clearence.

It took me awhile to get these forks, but the wait was worth it, now I can do anything I want, and not have to worry about bottoming out my sh1tty forks. Marzocchis rule!!

Strength:

Very plush, not too heavy, good seals.

Weakness:

Not enough tyre clearance.

Excellent forks (especially at the price I paid!). Very plush and I've only managed to bottom them out once, and that was off a seven foot drop! Probably suited more towards DH, as they are a little too heavy for any other area of riding. Also they are a bit too soft for duel racing. You'll find that all your acceleration is lost from the bobbing (this could be changed by using stiffer springs / heavier oil). Other than faultless!

Strength:

None

Weakness:

Not plush enough for real riding, downhills, drops or anything narly.

This shock must be made for sissy riders, I broke the crown on it like it was butter, oil was leaking from the fork all the time, couldn't take big hits. For a freeride fork this dog cra_b. My 40mm headshock had more guts than this thing did.

Downhiller

Strength:

Smooooth, Sweet, Plush and will put up with the punishment you put it threw. Low mantaince, just change the oil and they will take care of you.

Weakness:

Humm... Im still trying to find one

I raced with them all last season and had no problems with them what so ever. Im a very agressive rider, and what i did to them im suprised there not dust by now.
There a great DH/Freeride fork and all around agressive rider, there great for beginner/ sport DH racing, there not the best for expert/ pro DH racing.
