raymond hobi   Cross Country Rider [Mar 21, 2010]
Strength:

fairly adjustable,durable

Weakness:

not appropriate for big drops or any type of downhill or free riding

this suspension fork is appropriate for beginner to intermediate cross country riding. you have to remember that. different shocks are designed for different types of
riding and/or terrain. also if you're not a very skilled rider (ie: you're relying on the suspension too much) you
won't be that happy with it. try riding a rigid fork and then see what you think!

Blew a cartridge ....before it was set up to my weight.

Equis   Weekend Warrior [Nov 05, 1999]
Strength:

None just looks nice this Shock really sucks, I cant beleive it retailed orginally for $600 dollars. Its a POS, its so soft even when set to the highest tension its like riding on a flat tire in front of you and ait over all makes you prone to crashing alot. It renders your control of your bike considrably!!!

Weakness:

Same as above

THis Shock Sucks so much ass

big A   Racer [Oct 11, 1999]
Strength:

ungh?

Weakness:

This fork ruined my season. It is simply a slophouse; like riding with a flat front tire. It bottoms out with no effort and I've blown two cartridges in the few months that I have owned it.

The bottom line is that this fork makes me cry at night. As another reviewer stated, this shock isn't worth the box it came in. I paid $100.00 for this fork thinking even if it sucks it has got to be worth a bill. I was horribly mistaken. Don't make the same mistake I made. Now my bike has a rigid fork on it until I can find something better than an xl, like a judy jett

Strength:

UMMMMM NONE!

Weakness:

POS!!!!!!!
Not worth the box it came in. Shitty travel, bottoms out. Looks like crap/GAY!

Really bad fork, even for the $187 it cost. Travel is NOT progressive at all, bottoms out all the time. I can't believe Rock Shox is still in business, their only good product is the BOXXER. You know why I must give it 1 flaming pile of shit, I'd give it zero but thats no an option, I think it should be

Ed Burger   Downhiller [Jun 23, 1999]
Strength:

Light weight.cool looks reliable performance

Weakness:

a little bit flexy for DH

After using a DHO in 3 DH race the XL is a lighter version and fun to play around with in technical trails. It doesn't have the bomb proof stiffness of the DHO but a great tango with the RS Super De luxe of the LTS rear. I blew all my 96 97 RS cartridge including the DHO but this XL brougth back my confidence in RS.The New C3 cart is reliable.My 180lbs was a problem at start and RS recommended to change the oil to a heavier weight oil and now its perfect. A flaming red hot payib bay 5,lima,cinco,Go,funf !!!
