Strength:

Cheap, good looking, light, works well, nice damping response, good rebound control, never bottomed out yet, lockout works perfectly.

Weakness:

None yet

Value! Could not compare to top end forks but a great fork for the money. Its not a free-ride or DJ fork its XC only but it does that very well, I wouldnt buy a top end fork because it just doesn't make sense to pay three or four times the price unless your able to use the difference.

Strength:

Lightweight. 1.45kg real weight.

Weakness:

Can't handle real offroad. Has a tendency to leak oil.

This is the fork and only fork to get if you still need suspension but want to use your bike for roads and pavement. This is for the hardtail racer who wants extreme speed at the cost of almost everything in a fork. Very limited usage but might fit some people's requirement.
