2010 World Cup

Rating:
The Good:

Extremely controllable via damping Light for DH forks Exceptional bottom out resistance Air preload offers as many spring rate adjustments as you need.

The Bad:

None yet, owned for a couple months only. I would say price, but it is on par with everything else.

Overall Review:

I've ridden the 2010 40 extensively and the new Dorado a few times for comparison. The damping controls are top notch compared to everything else on the market. For the Boxxer, I try to run a bit lower pressure (air preload) and set up the damping to keep the fork from bottoming, and the range is so great that I am only half way into the compression adjustment (low speed). The low and high speed rebound offer more options than any other fork too, so after a couple days of playing with adjustments, I'm pretty set. I'll change it up if a track dictates that.
