Strength:

It's a really great fork. It uses almost all of its travel, and very durable. Plus, they are bombproof, stiff, and keeps on working. I use it fairly aggresive, and it holds up really well with no problems. Lockout actually works.

Weakness:

Heavy and sometimes clangs under heavy braking (I use Shimano Deore M615 with Ice Tech pads and rotors up front). The springs are quite stiff and more suitable for riders above 70 kg. Uses fork grease instead of oil, but not a problem. The rebound quite fast, but manageable.

It's heavy as a Fox 40, but it's bombproof. Thrown around, dropped, hit, not a single problem. The springs are quite stiff but you can still use your body to add more force to it if you're lighter than 70 kg. I use them for aggressive XC, with jumps and drops. It still works well and nice, with no problems. Yeah I know sometimes it clangs under hard braking but it doesn't really matter. Overall, it's a really nice fork for the price.
