Xpost from shocks: Totem coil vs air

653 Views 0 Replies 1 Participant Last post by  Eric.
I'm about to pull the trigger on a new fork, not sure to go air or coil though.

I've always been a coil fan due to the small bump compliance, and overall reliability; however, I have tried a couple of well-worn Solo Air forks and was blown away at how plush and linear they were. If I had been blindfolded I wouldn't have been able to tell it wasn't a coil.

I'm not really into the Two-Step thing so I've got it narrowed down to either Solo Air or coil, DH damper. It's going to be paired up with a CCDB coil shock, FWIW.

I'm not terribly concerned w/ the weight difference, either way it's a big fork; I'm more concerned with plush & balanced (w/ the rear end).

Thoughts from anyone who's tried both by chance?
