Smooth

Weakness:

Too expensive unless you find a rare good deal.

Good smooth fork. I have this on my FS XC bike, and it was a fiddle to tune and get the front and rear to feel balanced. However when tuned right (and the rear *MUST* platform damping), it's *EXTREMELY* effective. I know this fork is very expensive 9the RLC being cheaper), but I managed to snag this brand new '12 Terralogic for less then half off (was looking for a RS Reba RLT originally). On a hard tail, you can tune it so it acts like an auto lock. However have a good look at how the brass mass works, and you realize the Terralogic is a lot simpler then a lock out control - the brass mass is simply a "switch" the chooses between two compression circuits. When the brass mass is up (ports closed), you can dial in how fast or slow the forks compress on low impact hits (less then what ever the G force is required to move the brass mass, somewhere around the 1G mark). Doing this also sets up a pressure differential due to the restriction set by the blue "threshold" dial (that label is so miss leading since you don't actually change the threshold). When the brass mass does move and opens up the ports to bypass the restriction, the pressure built up inside the fork is suddenly released and leaving the standard compression stack to control the compression. So on a full suspension bike, it's super easy to over or under do, and that can unbalance the bike. However, when you get the tuning just right it really makes a bike feel playful and toss-able. Like the FOX RLC and CTD forks, it's extremely plush. This fork would be less hassle if you had a Specialized brain rear shock or a hard tail. But on an FS, I do agree with most pro reviews that the RLC or CTD forks would be a better choice for FS. Doesn't mean it won't work - just means you need lot's of patience and a good knack for tuning to get the most out of it on an FS bike. Due to this, I knocked it down 1 flaming chilli on the overall score.

Strength:

Steering precision and handling. Out of the saddle efforts and climbing. Smooth Suspension action at speed. Very efficent. Feels really smooth at a good riding pace. Bump compliance is great.

Weakness:

Slow speed small bump compliance.

In a word this fork is AMAZING! It works just as good as claimed. The fork is a racers best friend, when flying through the trail the feeling of the fork is unbelievable. Very smooth and somewhat plush (at a good decent pace). Its truly amazing how stiff the fork is when out of the saddle climbing, sprinting, or whatever. It does not move. At a good pace the fork is stiff as expected and the Terralogic works so perfect is amazing. However, at low speed this fork has very little small bump compliance. Its a fork meant to be ridden hard. If you want plush, comfy, and buttery smooth, don't get Terralogic. But get this fork up to speed and it absorbs bumps small and big like a Regular Fox Float. The fork does take some time getting used to it. Also I found that after about 6-8 hours of riding the fork became more responsive in terms of Terralogic engagement and open suspension. Bottom Line, if you race its perfect! If you just want to ride for fun and are not concerned about the most efficent platform you can get. No need for it.

Strength:

15mm qr kashima coat, very stiff, terralogic

Weakness:

pricey

This is the future of mtb suspension this honestly sets the bar very high. the fork is plush when it needs to be and stiff when climbing (terralogic actually works ). I've tried it now at a couple good trails around where I live and can not wait to race. Bottom line, this fork gives you an unfair advantage so go get one!

Strength:

Stiff, Terralogic function, Kashima coating, graphics

Weakness:

just a bit heavier than I would like

Love my Fork on my S Works Epic (w/ brain)...stiff on the climbing, active on everything else...set it and forget it. I wanted something similiar to that on my Pivot so I ditched my 2010 Fox FIT RLC (w/o kashima coating) and bought this one. Only had it for a month but so far this fork ROCKS! Terralogic works like I hoped for...Stiff on climbs (even out of the saddle) and very active...and plush on everything else. Just set the threshold where you want it and leave it. Kashima coating is very slick...no stiction! Supposedly upgraded seals from previous model, so maybe the great feeling is a combo of that and Kashima. Whatever it is, I love this fork! Only drawback is the weight (.22 lbs heavier than regular Fox FIT fork) but worth its weight in gold! Still 5 chilis!
