Strength:

Extremely light and stiff.

Weakness:

No where to place a mudguard but then who needs one if your running this kinda rig. This fork can be too light is some inexperienced hands as it can lift the whole front of the bike up if you pedal off hard from a standing start.

I never believed something so light could be so stiff and yet turn small hits into a rumble instead of a Zingggg... like aluminium forks. The resin flexes to a point then the carbon takes up the rest to stop it going any further and this turns the whole front end into something that tracks on a line of dental floss - easily. These forks are very very good. The finish is ultra neat.
