I'm riding my 2015 Process with a coil and about 20% SAG. It pedals like a goat

Maybe you should try to wear them rubber side down. Then you don't have to look at the dirty sole and walk on the laces...

Sam called it a Wild Grip'r in audio, so we just went with it. but you're right, it's been corrected.

I see. Well, it covers the same spectrum as the gripper, so i guess it's sausage as the german would say

That's not a gripper 2. It's the already available Wild enduro front... probably with tougher chasing.

I guess SasTec will prevent the broken finger?! At least if the pad lies directly on the finger...
Or am I not thinking straight?

I could swear that those SasTec pads are CE2 certified. At least they are in the burlier K_Caps. It's a pitty they don't produce them any longer. It's like crashing into a big Pillow

Well it was critic, but not a harsh one, since comparison is just a part of the whole review. The rest was very good.

The weight might actually be a big factor. I'm below 70kg in my riding gear. I guess that's 140lbs or so and you really notice the weight of stuff, even if its not rotating, when your'e so light. For example the difference between a Totem (2.8kg if I'm not mistaken) and the Metric (2.3) was immense and totally screwed up my ballance in the air. Also living in the Alps it does matter if you pedal 13 or 14kgs up 1500 vertical meters in a rush

Thanks, that would be most appreciated!

Hey Jeff, that was not ment as a harsh critic. I just red the review of the Metric a few years ago right here on Vital and since both forks fall in the same category (yes, the evil word, but since the Durolux is somewhat a shrunk down RUX and the Metric is a shrunk down RV1 and both wheigh about 200-300g more than your average enduro/AM/trail fork, which as a matter of fact matters to a lot of riders, i think for once the category thinking might be adequate here) and wondered how they compare.

I own a Metric btw, hence my curiosity, and have recently converted it to coil

Greetings. Good review, but you missed to compare that fork properly. Chassis wise/weight wise the Durolux seems to be fompared to XFusions Metric, which you (i.e. vital MTB ) reviewed a few years ago. Both forks are burly freeride forks (actually the Metric is a shrunk down DH Fork), not stiffer Enduro forks, at least in my book
So how does the Durolux compare to the Metric, and what about a Lyric or a Yari?
Thanks a lot.

Hi!

we have quite a lot of experience with KS posts, and overall, they do a great job. There are a few small things that dropped the score here: it has a tendency to get "stuck down" after the bike sits for a while, you may have to force it to return back up (usually not critical, but sometimes...more

What didn't you like about the Lev Ci except the price? And what is your estimation on how durable a carbon dropper post might be in cace of a crash?

Hi All,

Brian from Tantrum here. A big thanks to Brandon, Shawn and Vital for giving me the opportunity to showcase my creation and new brand. It means they recognize Tantrum as a future brand to be considered and I appreciate that.

Very good review! But it's lacking comparisons. How does the TRS perform compared to a Kaiser Project 2,4, a Baron Project 2,4 or the Wildrock'R2?

Good review!
Am I understanding correctly, that you could use 32T oval chainring instead of a round 30T one, still maintaining the ability to ascend uphills of similar steepness as before?
