Model/Year: 2008

Pros: Stiff
20mm thru axle

Cons: Weight

Recommendation: Not the lightest fork. But it is very plush and easy to set up. Also, the thru axle is super stiff.

Pros: I have the '07 145mm fork on my sons FR rig and I love it. It is bomb proof!

Cons: Pricey

Recommendation: If you want a very tough but light fork shock, this is one. Makes a great FR fork!

Pros: The increased travle over the '06 model, looks, and it is bomb proof.

Cons: pricey

Recommendation: smooth as silk over some extreme terrain. You ride a mountain bike fr a reason, get a shock that does what it is supposed to do. Buy this (but haggle fr a good deal)!
