Still Lookin......

PLUSH!!!!!!! I am more and more impressed with this fork with every ride, I just hope that it keeps impressing for a long time. I bought this fork because the Magnessium Arch on my Manitou developed a crack. I can't justify spending 600-1200 bucks on a 130mm fork. Then I started to do some research, and have heard nothing but good things about the X-Fushion Velvet. But the price and the amount of adjustments, I was sold. I also heard that their warranty dept is top notch, and so is their Custy Service, I just hope that I don't have to contact those people too often.

Strength:

Ease of use, low weight, 130mm travel, looks! This fork can be used for a 650b wheel out of the box. It also has 30 clicks for rebound adjustment and an easy to use lockout! The fork can be set anywhere from 80 - 130mm internally. Can be internally converted to 650b fork using an internal travel spacer. Super stiff with the 15mm axle!

Weakness:

None so far.

Sweet fork that delivers on climbs and descents!

light, adjustable, inexpensive, smooth

Weakness:

none

great value of a fork. inexpensive, light, strong, smooth, adjustable. definitely worthy of considering over fox or any other fork. currently i have it setup at 100mm on my xc set-upped sette ace and it works very well. it immediately dropped about 1.5 lbs compared to the rs tora that was on there. can be adjusted to different lengths with internal spacers. will try it at 120mm sometime later. also 650b compatible.

Strength:

Light, good looking, strong, amazing build quality, 15mm QR is awesome.

Weakness:

none

If you don't have a lot of money to put into a fork but still want quality stop looking you have found it. I have been riding this fork for a month and have been nothing but pleased. Sure it doesn't have all the fancy bells and whistle like the $700 Fox shocks but it has it where it counts. This fork is very light at under 4 lbs and has amazing adjustably. It nice to finally see a company building parts for the rest of the world that don't have the money for the fancy name but still want a quality product
