Strength:

Buttery smooth travel that's adjustable. Unlimited settings. Excellent finish and super stiff.

Weakness:

need a tool to take the axle off. Myriad of settings can be kind of confusing.

I'm blown away by how good this fork is. It is just super smooth. Previous to this I had a Marzocchi 55 and before that a Fox RLC. I liked them both, the Fox was bullet proof, the Zoke buttery smooth but fragile and constantly broken. The X seems to be the best of all worlds, I can't even find a plastic part on it anywhere. Plus I got the 1.5" head tube version with a 20mm through axle so it tracks about as straight as can be. Great fork.

Strength:

-Top tier fit and finish and controls
-Respectable weight at ~5lbs
-Dampening adjustments make readily noticeable ride changes and make for easy tuning
-Stiff
-Competitively priced
-Fantastic right out of the box

Weakness:

-2011 model has no tool less 20mm axle
-2011 model has a higher axle to crown height compared to the competition(ive been told 5mm higher, not much).

The Vengeance has absolutely blown me away.The vengeance is super smooth and plush right out of the box, adjustments make a big enough difference to be very effective tuning tools, the fit, finish, and controls are fantastic.

To sum it up, the Vengeance has been a disgusting value, and as far as my experience goes, the least amount of sticktion, the best dampening, and the best overall ride ive ever experienced in a long travel air fork. A++

As far as im concerned, i just purchased the best long travel air fork on the market for the least amount of cash. Really glad i got turned onto the Vengeance.
