Strength:

I like the 7" of travel for such an in expensive fork. When I blew the seals, RST was awesome and sent me replacement seals and helped out finding me someone who would work on it for me.

Weakness:

I rode only once and blew the seals. If you put to much air in the fork, you blow the seals and the rebound is completely gone. If you put to much oil to offset the rebound problem, you risk blowing the seals. It was a pain trying to get work done on it. None wanted to touch the thing.

since I've only ridden the thing once, i can't really say to much about it. it took the hits, but i paid for it with blown seals. The fork seemed to blow through the travel relatively easily and rebound never got adjusted quite right. I think once I get it fixed, I'm gonna sell it.

Strength:

Takes BIG hits and maintenance is fairly easy.

Weakness:

Needs lots of attention.

I have tried several different weights of oil because this fork is moody. When it works, it works well, but when it is off, OUCH!! I returned it to XMO twice already and they can't seem to make it 'right.'

Mine decided to 'stack-up' on a fast DH run and I thought I was going to die. It still compresses but doesn't rebound for about 2 mins. That will have to be fixed before next season. I think I am going to get a less moody fork once I get this one working and sellable!

Strength:

The fork, it's aawesome.

Weakness:

Slightly flexy, and a litle drippy.

This fork is great. Plush, smooth, endless travel. I have my fork set up for over 7". This fork has been abused by my fat ass 200 pounds and has been put to every test. I crumble before my fork, it can take more than I can. It eats rocks, drops, and everything. Makes the rough feel smooth. They are a little bit flexy but the travel is soo good you'll never notice.

Strength:

many changes can be easily made, then it's a dream to ride it

Weakness:

oil leaking, not very good set as stock fork. Disc Brake only

I have it with 190mm of travel (it seems to be endless), eats every rock, and copies every god dam hole, stone, scooby, or whatever comes in front of it. It takes a little time to learn that you don´t have to raise your front wheel every time you face a medium/big obstacle. And it's a hard terrain we have here!!!

nik   [May 14, 2003]
Strength:

seem resonably stiff which i like coz losing power through forks that r too soft suck but that just maybe how i have them set up.

Weakness:

not exactly sure havent come across any really but im sure they do.

i like em and they rnt over priced. wouldnt recomend them for majorly serious riders i would tend to stick to the boxxer or monster t's they just seem to feel a little bit stronger, but nver the less the xxl r great for someone with a bit less money who still wants the travel.

Similar Products Used: white bros. have a similar fork but i didnt really like em much.

taz   Racer [Mar 25, 2002]
Strength:

this fork has 7" of smooth travel that sucks up everything in front of it.Inexpensive and user friendly.Pretty stiff for an inverted fork.Stiffer than the shiver.

Weakness:

Leaks a lot of oil even out of the box. Springs are too cheap,they kinda get smaller after one year. Doesn't look good when you see it for the first time.

This is the best fork in this price range I have ever tested.Beginners who want a great fork not too expensive, this is your ticket for the rides of your life. The only thing is that this fork costs a lot of oil in one summer.It soaks up everything, but expect to hear a metal crunching clunk a few times during your descent. It blows it's travel too fast but it can save you from big hits and is very sentivive for small bumps. I recommend this fork for every beginner in this sport that want a good working fork for his hard earned bucks. And the best of all: it's user friendly, very easy to repair and to clean.You are a gravity freak on budget? Go for it! You are a downhiller who is entering the world of racing? Don't buy this fork?

Lee   Downhiller [Jun 12, 1999]
Strength:

Super smooth travel, plenty stiff, easy to de/re-assemble, lots of adjustment, upgradable to 7, quality USA hand made product.

Weakness:

At like 7-8 lbs. Its a little weighty, but I rode a light RS DHO before, and its garbage to this fork. The weight doesn't matter in DH. Inverting the bike causes some oil to get in the air chambers, which isn't a huge deal, but a little dumb. Disc brake only.

I got this fork 2nd hand, with the 7 setup, and it had a few changes made (THE Bjorn DH setup), which made the fork a DREAM to ride. Apparantly the fork is a little crappy feeling stock from RST... But if you change a few things...MY GOD its nice. I can bomb anything on this bad boy. Has coil springs with air assist chambers with oil damping and its very adjustable to any rider. SWEET FORK!
