Pros: Lightweight Compression and Rebound Adjustment with lockout

Cons: Makes subtle noises

Recommendation: So far I am pleased with this fork. When I first rode out of my garage it felt great. When I hit the first root section, I knew it was radically better than coil. It is adjustable which allows you to set the fork for your need. The fork can make a subtle howl/honk noise when it compresses, this is really a minor complaint though and the benefits out weigh the drawbacks here. This is a great fork to get as an upgrade for a low-end hardtail.

Pros: Responsive Lockout option is awesome Great for all-mountain riding

Cons: Nada

Recommendation: They are definetly not the top of the line but they are definitely not the bottom of the barrel either. Great forks.

Model/Year: 2010 Motobecane Ht 400

Pros: Inexpensive, lighter than coil, adjustability, ride quality.

Cons: Though lighter than coils still little on heavy side. Noise as air travels in shock not unbearable but you hear it.

Recommendation: For entry level cross country great shock. Absorbs small drops and keeps rolling. I'd buy again.

Pros: Value, features, price

Cons: Not as advanced as other forks, but not built for that

Recommendation: Awesome fork for the money. I got the 2012 model for a bargain at pricepoint on close out.

Model/Year: 2012 HardRock 29er

Pros: Air and rebound Adjustable. Comes with it's own pump, easy to install yourself.

Cons: nada

Recommendation: Upgraded the stock fork on my HardRock. What a difference! It's like a whole new bike.

Model/Year: 2010 Hardrock

Pros: Great fork for hardtail bike, much better ride than a non air fork, love the adjustability of the rebound and the full lockout works very well. I also love the spacers to either raise or lower the ride height.

Cons: Not as many bells an whistles as other forks but I also don't want any of those

Recommendation: Amazing fork
