    Strength:

    If you like pogo-sticks, this is the product for you...

    Weakness:

    where do I start...the slightest bumps or roots feel ten times bigger then they are. The fork barely gives and when it does it pops you back up again in a very jerky, fast manner.

    Do not waste your money on this "suspension".

    theyre blue, ill give it some credit it can compress

    Weakness:

    the whole thing, i bottomed them out and i only weigh 68kgs, yiou cant go over any sorta bump with out them firing back out cos of the lack of rebound dampimg

    crap , buy them if you got no money and need to ride but otherwise stay the heck away
    and i only give them one flamin chlli cos you have to give it one

    Strength:

    Good price
    adjustable
    plush sometimes :)

    Weakness:

    A little heavy
    dont jump over 5 feet, because this fork is not for it

    I like this fork, because that was my first
    i think this fork is for easy rideing, not for downhilling, or freeriding

    That was my first fork!!! Now I have a RockShox Duke XC U-turn (63 to 108mm), and it's much better.

    Strength:

    Uuummmm.........

    Weakness:

    Where to start. Pre load adjustment makes no obvious difference to control. Even set on full hard they bob 2" when standing up and pushing up a hill. They top out noisily and constantly. A complete waste of time.

    My RST's came on my new bike. If there are Gamma's on your new bike, swap them BEFORE you leave the shop. 1 flamin thingy only because I cant give a negative.

    Strength:

    Comfortable. Helps to keep direction on uneven trail. Has good shield against dust, mud and moisture.

    Weakness:

    Not found

    Good for those, who ride during weekends in moderate manner. Don't think that it could be used for agressive riding.

    Strength:

    color matches bike. boots.
    cheap.

    Weakness:

    flexes. bottoms out

    This fork is two weeks old and it was nice for two rides now it bottoms out down fire roads at speed and going in to jumps. As I sit here geeking out, my bike is in the shop getting stiffer springs put in the fork and i only wiegh 150.I hope my problems are cured and if so this fork has potential to be a really good enty fork. I'll give them the benifit of the doubt and give them three
