Pros: 1 of the biggest pros is the lightweight. it weighs about as much as some single crown forks with the benefits of a dual crown fork. another is the added stiffness up front to help steer through the rough stuff. a great fork for light riders under 160 pounds or so.the company is out of Colorado and has great customer service which is a plus if you have any questions or concerns. it has 2 crown options flat or drop. it has just over 7 inches of travel, and when bottomed out it is not harsh even off 10 foot drops.(which is bigger than the fork is intended for)

Cons: finding the magic sweet spot in the settings can be tricky. would also like a smoother travel, some stiction can be felt. not a good fork for heavy riders.

Recommendation: while not a full on down hill fork it can handle quite a bit of abuse, I'm on my 3rd year with the same fork and only had 1 rebuild due to large drops offs between 5-8 feet week after week. if you are looking for a cheaper fork than the fox 40 or the boxxer world cup, and you're not a full out hucker, this is a great fork for the money. I love my fork and would recommend it for the all mountain rider and most lightweight DH riders. it is a fork that is designed for downhill but not the knarliest courses.
