Strength:

Full lockout, ACT air, 34mm stanchions, disc or rim brake compatible. White.

Weakness:

Dedicated pump needed to adjust air.

I finally upgraded from my Magnums by means of the great Manitou trade-in program. (The $285.00 price tag included installation at my LBS.) While the Magnum forks were very good, the Drakes have a great deal more power, control and adjustability. I can simply ride with less fear.

Strength:

Very stiff, very adjustable, easy to custom tune.

Weakness:

None so far.

ABS+ damping is as good as it gets for under 500.00. True LSC, Shim stack HSC that can be changed for your weight in about 15 minutes, and shim based rebound. The ACT coil/air spring works really well. Manitou says 4.4 lbs, but my scale came said 4.1(bonus!) For the price, Its an amazing fork.

Strength:

Price, Simplicity

Weakness:

Only Available in 9mm skewer. I dont have problem with this but some will want the choice...

I love this fork of the choices available in 29" 120mm travel and simple setup vs the Reba with dual side air (nightmare to adjust). Fox only has 100mm stuff for 29rs. Marzochi has a nice 140 mm trave but weighs 5 + pounds.
