Strength:

It is pretty durable,with nice quality machining and seals,it is very responsive and it rides great.I love the lockout feature,as well as the somewhat adjustable preload.with a bit of easy maintanance it will last very long.

Weakness:

It has quite short travel,which isn't always used at its best.

It's nice

Thunderclap   Cross Country Rider [Mar 22, 2011]
Strength:

It worked for 6 months and matched color of bike.

Weakness:

Poor construction, travel, strength and the crown broke after a minor crash and 3100 miles logged on the bike.

I realize that I have ridden through snow rain and shine for six months five days a week, but I never expected that the forks would split after a short period of time.

If you are only riding now and again, you might find satisfaction with this fork. However, I do not have hills and rocks to hop, simply patrolling the campus and avoiding being hit by vehicles.

Strength:

Good response at all speeds, preload works fine if properly maintained

Weakness:

No lockout

This is a fine fork if it is used as it's intended. Many of the reviews here are very aggressive riders' reviews of this fork, and they are critical because it failed on them. This form was not designed for aggressive riding. If you're like me and tackle rough roads and medium duty trails this fork is what the doctor ordered. It's easy to adjust, and as long as it's maintained and adjusted properly, it should give you no trouble.

G-Ride   Cross Country Rider [Oct 06, 2010]
Strength:

none

Weakness:

squeeking spring , Loose knobs that won't turn easily ,No rebound at all , very bouncy en nervous .Heavy fork with lot of flex and no adjustment at all .

Don't buy this fork as an upgrade it is a waist of your money .My fork is making al lot of strange noises and isn't up for the job only for looks .The epicon/Axon range is worth the buying the XC series is crap .

Similar Products Used: Suntour XCM was better and more reliable .

hgjr   Cross Country Rider [Aug 10, 2009]
Strength:

decent for the bike paths around here

Weakness:

not much to adjust thatmakes a difference...small stroke...should be 100mm at least would have been nice, but it came with the bike

great for starters but with the agressive trail im riding these are not that great in the rocks or any drops. perfect for the bike paths or smooth singletrack. if youre serious about the ruff stuff better upgrade quick, i will be doing just that...

dirtyrotten   Weekend Warrior [Jul 13, 2009]
Weakness:

on roads, level and uphill, absorbs some of energy during power pedal phase,
on trail, absorbs
on light down hill, works well.

good for starters, if when thinking of becoming serious, get Suntour XCR or better
