Strength:

Looks and weight. Beautifully machined aluminium anodised red. Very light construction using oversised tubes.

Weakness:

Internals were utter garbage. returned to manufacturer 3 times in the first year due to failed damper unit. yeah oil pissing down the leg. The bush and seal assemblies gave so little rigidity that the front wheel could track 5 degrees with no upper stancion movement.In other words they were like rubber when you applies lateral forces to the wheel despite a 28mm bolt thru axle. the axle clamps screwed into the sliders so you had to turn the stancion by hand to tighten or use a stilson on your slider if you dont want a ledty fork conversion mid run. I had the damper side (luckily) disconnect on a step down in les gets. not funny. surely this is the worst high end mtb product ever mis-sold. Plus the internals on the spring leg disintegrated. I fab'd my own carbon replacements. Not what u want for a grand.

Worth more melted down. Complete waste of good materials.
