Strength:

Light great response in the trails and can take everything i throw at it and cheep cheep cheep its still like new been serviced and only cost me £80 and it still feels like a new fork over all i would buy these for starting out in dh / fh and build a budget bike

Weakness:

Can be a bit soft but replacement spring heaver rating sorts that one

Kick as fork and keeps up with my mates 2012 boxxers and my mate payed £350 for them so top old shox that will keep up . Does strugle on anything over 15ft drop but most fork today struggle with that . Top for kick ass

Strength:

This fork is a pure downhiller's dream. Going downhill and going downhill fast has never been easier, thanks to Rock Shox's Boxxer. It is light and takes rocks and drops with ease.

Weakness:

Hmm...Only amazing for downhill...If going for drops...I would take the Marzocchi Monster T...

These forks are well worth the money. I am more than happy with mine...It works likea charm.

Strength:

this fork handles every thing northstar has to offer . If you got the balls this fork will rail threw or over any thing .I've bailed so many times times on this fork it should be a pretzel but true to the bombness of the product its straight as h*ll all thouhg my lowers are dented it has no effect on the slideing of the legs . try that on all your upside down forks and see where it stops working

Weakness:

none if you consider that every thing on your bike should be cleaned after every ride any way. befor first oil change go to moto shop and get 15 weight BEL RAY fork oil and and maint. is cut down drematicly all you need after that is a good clean rag and a little lube on top seals

bomb *ss product

Strength:

super plush travel all the way down. takes bumps and rok gardens like there not there, quik steering and not heavy at all.

Weakness:

cant take big huks but thats just how i have it set up for my races. bit of a pain in z ass to tune. no on the fly or exterior tuning.

while me bike is a bit old, id suggest this fork to anyone who luvs the race or just loves to ride. for the price of it and getting the fork tuned to how u want it, it is cheaper than lashing out for a new set of 888's or the newer boxxers, graet fork luv the colour

Strength:

It works

Weakness:

Too flexy with the Hayes 8" rotor, not as plush and smooth of drops as a Shiver. anoying squeek through first couple of inchies.

Go marzocchi if you want the best preforming forks out there
or if you want something that just works get it

Strength:

Well... It looks awesome! I just love the electric red color. And the suspension feels great so far. No problems, i like the rebound and the stiffnes of the fork. And it's also light! Well, that's all you need for a fork!

Weakness:

Hmmm... They say that the Boxxer aren't as strong as for example Zocchis Monster T, but that fork is too heavy! But so long it has work well.

If you need a light fork, and you don't go as big as Bender, this must be the perfect fork! But if you just dropps and goes big, you should get a Marzocchi Shiver or Monster I think.

Strength:

Super Ansprechverhalten, extrem steif, wunderbar
verarbeitet - alles paßt hervorragend, gutes Design, endlich eine dezente Farbe, ausgereiftes Produkt

Weakness:

der Preis...
und daß keine Federn zum Anpassen an Gewicht +
Fahrstil beigefügt sind. Die kosten nochmal extra.

Mann, diese Gabel ist wirklich geil. Kommt mir so vor, wie beim Porsche 911, der wurde auch über Jahre
immer weiterentwickelt und ist jetzt ausgereift und von
allen Kinderkrankheiten befreit.
Fahrer unter 70 kg sollten sich gleich noch eine weiche Feder mit dazubestellen, das Standard-Setup ist sonst einen Tick zu hart.

Strength:

Super sensitive. Very responsive. Stiff/Strong

Weakness:

Maint can be a headache.

Did the last guy post just to do some serious bench racing? Boy man im sure youy are the greatest rider ever!! Can I get your autograph.

Rode a 2000 Boxxer for over 2 years with no problems. Rode 01 on team bike often - very sweet too. Tested 02 for some time and still seems to be the ticket. Good fork. Really smokes. I know RS gets crap because they have been around so long but the product really works. Tech support is fantastic and RS really has a can do attitude.

Watch the MTB videos. More Boxxers than anything followed closely by Monsters. That should tell you something.
