I'm very certain that I want to upgrade to a U-Turn Air Revelation 426 for my Trance 2... But I have a couple of questions:

Does the amount of sag remain the same when winding travel down? Or does it change in proportion to the amount of travel (eg 25%)?

Also to anyone else running a U-Turn Air fork... do you set your sag at the travel setting you use most?

I was thinking that I'd keep the fork at 120mm most of the time for most singletrack. Winding it down to 100mm for smooth singletrack/long climbs and taking it out to 130mm for techy sections/big descents.

Sweet fork, you'll like it ! Anyway, I own one and set both my sag and do the air spring tuning when the fork is at maximum travel as suggested in the manual ! I have found the recommended + and - air pressures for rider weight abit too high so I have lowered them a little at a time to achieve what I like ! Once you get one you will discover for yourself the range in tuneability ! TIG.

U-turn sags at "percent of total", not a fixed amount. Coil forks anyway, so I'm assuming air U-turns are similar. Like mentioned, best to set sag at the travel you expect to use the most.
