-Handles rocks and roots fairly well
-Does the job
-Not very good for extreme DH biking
-Bit stiff, doesn't use all the suspension, even with the preload at the lowest setting
-Bit cheap, Giant could've used a better fork for the Talon 27.5 4
I am fairly pleased with this fork. I have never bottomed it out, but I've only ever used about 85-90 mm of the actual suspension. It is a fairly good entry level fork, and handles roots and rocks pretty well.
