    “Starter Fork”

    The Good: If you're getting into sport, especially XC this is good fork. Has a turnkey lockout and really isn't hard to turn while driving or getting into climb.

    The Bad: Well, if you care about weight don't go for this fork. Personal: My trails often have a lot of mud on it and rebound adjustment is really problematic without cleaning. After big drops you will have a felling that fork doesn't work on smaller rocks.

    Overall Review:

    I'm giving it 4 stars looking from aspects of beginner XC rider. You won't need anything more for XC hard tails, so if you're not obsessed by the weight go for it. If you break it, you haven't used it right.
