Strength:

cheap

Weakness:

It does not absorbs the bumps.

It looks cheap and also offers bad quality. Works like a wooden peg.I do not understand all these delights.I have one in Spec Epic and this is worst component in this bike. It does not absorbs the bumps. It works like a regular spring. Crap.

Windforce   Cross Country Rider [Jun 13, 2012]
Strength:

dual chamber - plenty of adjust options
progressive characteristics - gentle and responsible when you want and efficient and tough when you need
lightweight - mine weights only1680g with pop-lock
white looks good!

Weakness:

it isn't as stiff as it should be - under high load it wants to bend under the frame. Front wheel is quite lousy with 9mm axle. 29er wheels are demanding.
can be tricky to adjust pressures for beginners
fragile finish - every contact with obstacles on your route results with damage of varnish.

Very plushy and precision response, great usage of 100mm travel, this is the fork you can rely on. one of recommended fork in this price range

Laguna Beach, CA   Cross Country Rider [May 03, 2012]
Strength:

weight, absorption, rebound, lockout

Weakness:

non

came on my 2012 Giant anthem x 29er. Plays a major role in why the bike rides so amazing. Soaks up all the hits with ease but takes all the bounce out of climbing. A superior fork with no problems. Never had a problem with Rock Shox while, I've had issues with Fox fork seals in the past.

duggus   Cross Country Rider [Aug 02, 2011]
Strength:

Light, dual chamber air, easy to adjust

Weakness:

none so far

I love this fork! This was coming from using a Dart 3 and its like night and day. The Reba RL is very easily adjustable by adding air, and the rebound adjustment makes really noticeable changes in the handling. The lockout works really well with only a small amount of bob. A+ So far.

Strength:

Lockout, dual air

Weakness:

Non so far

So far it's great, considering that my previous shock was Dart 3 it's like going from Buick to driving a BMW. I'll post more on this after I put in more miles.
