Strength:

Stiff, reliable,

Weakness:

If you got a small car and you commute with bike inside of it, you will find an axle removal very annoying (5 screws).
130mm version can't be lowered into 100/80 with moving spacers.

This fork is really easy to service in your garage what is a strong argument. To be honest, it is best budget fork i've ever ridden. Works perfect and abs+ is amazing. Weight is also fantastic. I think that Manitou is underestimated these times.

Strength:

Stiff, able to run big jumps locked out. Light for a DJ fork, great price/value for how well it works !

Weakness:

None

I got this fork after blowing out my Moco Damper on my RS Pike. I had the Pike as stiff as the coil spring would allow and still had to use the damper to make it stiff enough to jump well. The Circus has no problem running very stiff for Dirt Jumping, I have it set so I can use it like a normal fork on bumps and rocks and then when its jump time a couple clicks and it is stiff enough not to absorb all the lift on a jump but still moves on hard landings. It is designed for this purpose. The fork is so strong, the bike tracks great with no unwanted flex out of the front, my Pike was a noodle compared to the Circus !
