Strength:

Stiff, cheap, light. Really does work well. Great small bump sensitivity but ramps up great on the big hits

Weakness:

Seals crap themselves too often. My forks came with a factory defect so had to be sent back.

Cheap yet bloody excellent fork. Just get a set of enduro seals instead of the standard ones and your sorted.

Strength:

good responsive feeling. plenty of travel. all the adjustments ineed to dial my ride.

Weakness:

the stock coil seemed a bit weak for most heavy riding.

i love them. sure there are better forks but for the money i dont think i could do better simply because of my size and riding habits im sure ill eventually break anything.

Strength:

Super Plush, light, good damping rebound and compression. Easy to use Maxle.

Weakness:

Stupid specific Boxxer Disc adapter.

What a surprise. I was dead set on an 888 or another White Brothers. But for $475, I had to give the Boxxer a try. Especially with my recent good experience with the Pike. Nice surprise. The feel is different from the Super T but not better OR worse. Just different. I don't know if it's the price or this is a great fork overall but I definitely have to keep Boxxers on my list of future replacement forks.

Strength:

Great handling, light weight, plenty of travel and Lots of mud clearence. u could probably squeeze 26" by 2.7-3.0" tires infront. cheap price for a double crown.

Weakness:

No external rebound adjust and the only way 2 adjust it is to change the inner springs.

The Boxxer Race is one hell of a nice fork. It handles nicely without too much rebound. the boxxer race is also lighter than most double crowns and doesnt cost as much as a 888 or Boxxer wc.Excelent for DH, alright for jumps, and 4x. It relly sucks on XC trails (i dont ride XC so whos cares) and is a lil soft on the road. Bassically this fork only suits DH, and freeriders. Its alright for jumps and 4x, and is HORRIBLE for climbs, long distant pedaling, and road.

Strength:

External Compression and Rebound adjust, smooth and feel solid

Weakness:

None as yet

Not sure about the post below, this person must have got earlier model forks cos I have the 07 model which has external rebound on the same side as compression but the adjust is at the bottom and yes it is a bit of a pain it's on the bottom but no biggie. The fork tracks well and feels solid which helps inspire confidence, has a Funn direct mount stem which also helps the 'feel', however this may also be down to the kick ass frame. For the money ya cant go wrong as they are a better fork than many others that cost a lot more. This fork has plenty of adjustment without getting bogged down with settings. GO RIDE! Go get the 07's now.

flagboi @   Downhiller [Jan 01, 2008]
Strength:

the boxxer is a world renounced fork, it has great durability, is smooth, light and very plush. it eats pebbles for breakfast and feasts on big drops (i mean something like 3-4m high). although the lowest model in the boxxer series, it is definitely worth getting for its performance and great value! forget the worldcup and team; go 'race'

Weakness:

rebound adjustments can do with definitive markings (ie clicks), put aside that everything else works fine!!!

great value for performance, light and durable. GET ONE

"go hard, or go home!"
