Strength:

Very plush, sturdy and sensitive to small bumps

Weakness:

Very slight stiction but doesn't affect riding at all

Bought this on sale from CRC and I didn't look back. An underrated fork that lacks quality reviews. It's a very strong fork that is sensitive to small bumps and great in absorbing huge ones. Very light stiction but overall I love it. It is suitable for XC riding but I went ahead to harsher trails and is still durable as ever. East to lockout while riding, so there is really no need for a remote lockout function. This is comparable to a more popular fork like a Rock Shox Recon/Reba and it's damping system is on par with a Fox Float, some say it's even better. Test to believe, you won't regret it.
