Strength:

light and very plush loves cornering and small bumps. it also takes big hits (15 feet) well. very easy to set up.

Weakness:

I found after 6 months of street riding the lowers had a little bit of movement in them but other than that it's good.

all in all great fork for free ridin' and the smouthest and lightest 150+ single out their had to rebuild after a season of street but sticks 30 foot dubs no problem. the one thing that would make it perfect is if it had 180mm thats the only thing. I love fox shox but I'm using a totem on my new glory cuz i need more travel.

Strength:

The travel settings of 100-130-160mm are perfect. Super burly and stiff without a huge weight penalty. Adjustments are easy to use and it's easy to get dialed in. Fox's version of the thru-axle is super easy to use as well. Most importantly--it's a FOX.

Weakness:

None!! Price is a little high, but I got a smokin' deal on mine.

This is far and away the best fork on the market. It works better the more you use it and get it broken in.

The travel settings of 100-130-160mm are perfect. 100mm for climbing, 160mm for the DH and 130mm for everything else.

Super burly and stiff without a huge weight penalty. I mean, you're talking a 160mm thru-axle fork and just a bit over 5 lbs!!

Adjustments are easy to use and it's easy to get dialed in. The TALAS lever is very easy to use on the fly.

Fox's version of the thru-axle is super easy to use as well.

Do yourself a favor and get this fork. It is by far the best upgrade I ever made on my Yeti.

Strength:

FOX out-did themselves this time. This fork is absolutely awesome. I have always been a Marzocchi fan, but ever since Marzocchi announced that there Italian made fork's will be made in (((China)))I had to drop them. FOX put there engineer's to work to make, in my opinion the lightest, stiffest, most well rounded all mountain/free-ride/cross-country fork ever. The FOX 36 with its new 20mm skewer quick-release is yet an other remarkable plus. I can take my front wheel off nearly as fast as the non-20 mm skewers I used to have. You are not going to get any complaints from me on this product. FOX is proud of there fork's and there $$$expensive$$$ but you get what you pay for and FOX is American made. Thats all I needed to know. I posted some pic's of my baby! She rides like a Cadillac!!! Enjoy! http://www.putfile.com/pic.php?img=6555637

Weakness:

NONE!

If you want the best, then by this product. Word's to the wise (something I have learned myself) If you really want it- then GET IT!!! Dont settle for less, cuzz as soon as you do settle for less..... You will not be satisfied, especially when your out riding and you see someone else with the fork you really wanted. Then your gonna kick yourself in the arse!!!!! :)

Neal   Downhiller [Apr 29, 2008]
Strength:

20mm Axle, Super Plush and probably the smoothest fork i've ever felt once it is set up right. All the knobs are really low key and burley so they dont get in the way of anything. The 08 is really light for what it is

Weakness:

None really, I guess I thought it wasn't that great before i set it up right but now its total butter

This fork is great for any type of rider. Weather your doin long climbs, descending or both this thing soaks it all up. Its a real confidence booster to have those 36mm stanchions and the stiffness and reliability of the fork. I highly recommend you get this fork if your debating weather or not to get it. You wont be disappointed.

Strength:

plush, 20mm through axle, heavy duty knobs and dials, looks great, Fox quality

Weakness:

compression dials do not make much difference but the fork fells great with them both at the factory setting(1)

This is a great top of the line fork for the rider who likes to ride uphill, but likes to go down even more. It is symple the plushest and most smooth fork you will ever feel. Buy this fork if you are an aggressive all mountain rider who is looking for a fork with a little more travel than the usuall all mountain fork.

Tom Wright   [Nov 27, 2007]
Strength:

Very strong and stiff with the thru axle, plush, responsive. Adjustable compression

Weakness:

Not as good traction as a coil sprung fork. The advances this year in damping make it almost pointless difference especialy with the weight and adjustability advantage

These are just plain brilliant. I've only been for a few ride but can take everthing ive thrown at them whether its loose rocks or 8 foot drops. You can get perfect rebound from the adjuster and they're light enought to jump and get big air. though expensive at retail if you can find them anywhere cheaper go for it. If not take the Rs and you wont be dissapointed.
