Strength:

This fork has no strengths at all! never buy it. it sucks.

Weakness:

it bottoms out way to easily, and i only weigh 95lbs. The plastic inside the fork to keep it from bottoming out completely shatters and the adjustments dont work.

Never buy it. never jump it.

Strength:

ummmmm well it has good amount of travel

Weakness:

this fork sucks! it is horrible in fast trails,it says that it has 100mm of travel but it only uses 40 of that (it doesn't come with an O ring around it, so i put a zip tie around it and i race XC and ride dirt jumps at my house. i bet the crap out of this thing, cause it doesn't even do anything. i put it on lock out cause it works better then having it just soft. i have rode XC with it and it doesn't do anything, and i have rode free riding with it too, i hate it! i'm getting a new marzocchi dirtjumper 3 to replace this piece of crap. and i don't just ride dirt jumps, and i'm not basing it off do that its not made for that i'm basing it off of XC riding, and it sucks.

the fork sucks don't get it, and if its stock like mine was i would say change it for anything eleas that isn't a sr suntour you do pay for crap though so i think it is like 80 on sale so you pay for what you would get.

Strength:

Good price £60. Good travel. Tough.

Weakness:

None found yet....

Had these forks a while now, mainly because they seemed a bargain. Never bottomed out, that i've noticed. Even down steep rocky/pebbly terrain handled brilliantly. Across my usual XC forest stuff cant fault at all.

Strength:

Strong steer tube (thats all)

Weakness:

The bottom half is weak and gets wobbly, springs are way too soft, they stick in cold weather, and the adjustments dont work after a hard landing (ever again)(you turn them too far and they go back to the softest setting)

If you just like riding your bike slow on easy trails these would probally ok for you, but lay off stoppies and riding over anything higher than a curb.
I woludn't recommend these to every day thrashers.

Strength:

Price, looks great, good pre load adjuster.Held up suprislingly well on rough trails, roots rock gardens no problems.

Weakness:

Strenght!!! - Although this fork holds up well on trails, its not very good at taking any form of drop. I know its not designed for that use but, I slightly twisted these forks with a rough landing froma small 3 fott drop off. But I have to add, they still didnt bottom out. (If the did there was no rough clank noise.)

I will replace these forks soon, but thats because Im quite an aggressive rider. They are good for a level entry, and If your bike comes with these as stock, dont be put off their perfect for entry level and then you can replace them after a while without feeling youve waisted your money. --- Very good for price.!
