Strength:

So, so plush. Like riding on a pillow of beautiful softness. Incredibly laterally stiff. Light for dual-crowns.

Weakness:

Tiny bit of stiction if they aren't regularly serviced, but mine have gone for 18 months without a service and they're showing no signs of failing.

For the downhiller on a budget. These came on my Norco Atomik 2006 downhill bike and I have had no reason to replace them despite their 'entry-level' position. They don't feel far off the Fox 40's on my mate's Giant Glory, and they're 3 times the price. 7 inches of travel will be more than enough for anybody whose surname isn't Bender. 4 flaming chillis of fiery plush awesomeness.

Strength:

stiff, plush, external adjustments work really well

Weakness:

dunno

So far I have loved the fork. Feels really nice over choppy terrain and takes some pretty big drops even when I land 70% on my front end and should probably have crashed. Crown has some nice adjustability if you want to shorten your wheelbase a little. External adjustments are really simple and work great (I just hope they don't break).

Strength:

the adjustability, bottom out control, preload and rebound
that keith johnson dude probably didnt read the manuel because theres a black knob on the bottom of the fork that makes it more progressive so on bigger hits the fork isnt going to bottom out, it means that its really easy for it to compress over stutter bumps but on drops its adjustable so it might be easier to bottom out or harder because more or less pressure might be needed

Weakness:

can be uncommon to find

really nice fork great for beginners dont have many problems with it and its worh the value because some of the really nice forks like 888vf's have too fast a rebound for dh or freeride

Strength:

sweet look . Made for big hits and large drops better then 888 because same fork only 2 time lighter

Weakness:

part off drop of series , at least its the top

buy them enjoy them and ride them hard they can handle anything as long as you have 10 -15 pounds of pressure
