Strength:

Tough, and durable fork that has been on my old GT since 1998 - and still do the job.
Boots help keep crap out and they have yet to let me down. They are stiff in the crowns and legs are solidly built. Up and down gnarly XC trails in Afan area (my locality) before any construction of dedicated routes -they served fine and still do. Cost less than some forks service kits ! They are on my mud plugger and just keep going.

Weakness:

Not DH specific with yards of travel.
I have a Rockshox Recon gold and these forks are not that far off in terms of performance. Rebound feels a little slower.
No mod cons like lockout.

Really good fork for the day. Most people with Rockshox variants I know this old have destroyed / ditched theirs years ago.

Great Fork - I would not hesitate recommending if you are on a budget.

Strength:

Very low maintenance, I've never touched them, Why fix it if it aint broke. Good Looking, Hard Wearing,Relativly Cheap for quality

Weakness:

ummm

I've had these forks for nearly twenty yes TWENTY Years and they still ride sweet and true, best single track bike i've ever ridden, The ride is positive with greate feedback comming through the forks to the handle bars, an easy bike to ride. I also ride a Giant XTC3 and if i could get another pair of MOZO PROs I'd definatly fit them. ( I am 56yo)

Strength:

Look Good on my bike (red rims, red frame, red forks).
Heeps easy to clean/service.
Good Fork for beginner.

Weakness:

BAD, BAD, BAD seals, i dont know if its the stuff i do or the fork i use that is the course of the blown seals. I just dont have the money to upgrade. When the seals are blown the new grease that u have ut in them just literally pours out.

It WAS a good fork for beginners when the seals werent blown. but now they leak greas like when u squeeze mashed potato out of your mouth. (eeewwww). but it would be and allright fork for ppl with limited price ranges and beginners. EASY TO CLEAN/SERVICE!!!!!! not good for fast hard DHing (but yes i did use it for that) and yeah.

These came with my bike and although I do not think they're the best part of my bike or belong on anything woth alot over £500 (800US$ish) I think for medium stress XC riding they are fine.

Some people say that they are not good for downhillers, well quel surprise, look at them!! They are not Downhill forks! Listen, if you want to go downhilling you have to spend a bit of money on forks for that purpose, do not try and make something like this do that: it will just break.

I feel these are more suited to a hardtail than a full bouncer, where I normally prefer upwards of 4 inches to match a typical fox rear or otherwise. These claim to have 3.5 but I don't think my do, there's a good deal of ambiguity about these forks (RST are a little mysterious).

Mine have lasted two years without a problem, but I've looked after them, cleaning them inside with a toothbrush on one occasion! I think front forks respond better to a sevice than any other part of a bike bar chain so look after them, don't expect too much (i.e 6 foot jumps) and you'll be fine.

Strength:

They feel kinda light,soft, use the full amount of travel, easy to service, not to flexy

Weakness:

.bottoms harshly
.no progressivness
.no range of adjustment

An okay fork for the money that is sipmle to maintain even to the most dimwitted individual, but after about 2 years of use(I bought the bike 2nd hand)when I put the forks on there softest setting(can't notice any differance) it seemed to lower the travel by about 10mm but after 2 yrs of use I have had hardley any problems with this fork unlike my friends white bros which he has had for 2 or 3 months and he has already had the seals replaced, a scored stantion,a blown cartridge,alot of flex and twisted upper tubes and that is supposed to be a full-on dh fork and mine was just a simple xc fork and I have done almost all of what my friend rides...

Strength:

Has good travel(3.5 inch), Got many different setting can customize to personal preffs, has not bottomed out yet, can take a lot of abuse, low matiance, light weight, good price

Weakness:

setting both side of fork to the exact same setting is a pain, only about 80 miles on it.

The tavel is smooth, it has not given my any problems, you might think that it only has about 80 miles on it so it is practically new, infact i have only 115 miles of this bike since i bought it and i have smashed a rear rim, broke a rear derailluar, broke about a dozen teeth on my large chain ring and broke a seat, the miles are low but the abuse is extreme, it is the only thing on my bike that can take the abuse and will still good right.

Oi, only read + review on this page if you want to learn about improving your MoZo.

Seeing as you can read my review lower down I'll cut to the chase.
This fork is the business, Bladteth is rigth about the weight setting but don't worry, get some new internals.
I've got 130mm coil springs in the post and as soon as I've slipped them in I'll kick any Z1zzzzzzz to the dirt.
I've got the BETD brace, c my review. and I've got a oil damper, from a Delta TL, ready to retro fit, from my local RST dealer. I'm also making enquiries about re-plating the stantions with something nice.
mail 4 more info, or with any ideas of your own, I'd be happy to share.
