Been on this post for a few months now and can echo the review. It's reliable, well priced, and just works...The travel adjust is super easy and a nice feature as well!

My wife just put this post on her bike replacing a reverb. My impressions are the same. What impressed me the most was the lever. IMO its a better the the PNW loam lever than I have because of its spring return. Its just crisp and the adjustability is amazing especially if you are running SRAM matchmaker.

Following a few wrist injuries I am also very sensitive to harshness transmitted through the bars. I found the Shout best when paired with some handlebars offering a bit of give to make up for the momentary harshness that can be experienced on even curb-sized dropoffs. ALL the pivots. Haha. Riding the Shout without the bar toasted my wrists on long high-country rides.

Or you can learn to maximize the Trust's performance by nose-pressing absolutely everything... a scary proposition in some terrain.

There's no arguing that this concept has some cool performance advantages, but as Zach stated there are some drawbacks.

Doesn't it seem like all the positive attributes of the Trust forks can be achieved by running less sag and more compression on your existing telescopic fork? Less brake dive, doesn't throw you forward when you hit braking bumps or deep holes, stability on steep sections, etc, these are the benefits of the Trust but they're also the reasons why pros run 10% sag or less on their forks. And it seems like the tradeoff is the same: harshness. Sounds like the Trust is harsh on small bumps, and I can promise you that running a telescopic fork at 6% sag is also harsh. Even the advice is the same, “it feels rough, but you get used to it.” So couldn't you save $1000 and just pump more air in your current fork? Ride faster, brake later, and hold on for dear life.

I know of someone with this exact footage. wink I wonder if it'll be posted!

I have zero affiliation with the company or any media outlet at this point. I'm also good at setting up suspension. It is world's different when slapping the front wheel. Like, "oh my God did I forget to leave a lockout on" different. Last time I felt harshness like this was in 2001 riding David Camp's old Marzocchi Z something that would hydraulically lockout in HSC events.

Some have been up front about this. Others (with ties back to the company) tend to glaze over it and say "oh, it was different".

Downsides were well in excess of upsides, at least to me. That's without even taking into account the price.

Its a worthwhile experiment, sure, but I have to wonder how much of an echo chamber this thing was tested/developed in. I also have to wonder if there was a point they went "oh shit, we've spent a lot of money on this thing, lets see if we can't get some back".

The real proof would be some objective, timed, laps.

There's more useful information in a handful of these opinions than in a 1,000 miles of the "bad road" known as Pinkbike comments.
Thanks Vital!

Nice review. I've been on these for the past 3 months and love them. Tons of grip and super tough after numerous rock strikes. I was a big fan of the originals as well, but happy to see that these are thinner and lighter, and that the unnecessary spin control is gone.

Been using this cassette with Shimano XT 12 speed shifter and derailleur and a KMC chain and it works great. My hub didn't have a Microspline freehub available, and I didn't want to buy a whole new rear wheel, so this solution was perfect. It's also a nice chunk lighter than an XT 12 speed cassette. Highly recommend!

I've got the RUNT plugged in to my 2019 Fox 36 with the Grip 2 damper. I opted to just plug it in and not tune the damper at all in an effort to change one variable at a time. At the time, I was also considering throwing the Push ACS3 coil kit into the fork in order to better match the supple feel of my PUSH 11.6 rear shock. After installing the RUNT, I was amazed in the increase in small bump compliance, and I feel like the external adjustability of the Grip 2 allowed me to get really close. Being able to adjust both ends of the spectrum also allowed me to fine-tune the amount of progression depending on differing race tracks and scenarios. This is something I struggled with a ton running the 11.6 on the Evil Wreckoning. I went up 2 spring weights and the guys at PUSH did some customizing on the high speed compression circuit to try and get a more progressive feel.

Needless to say, I think the RUNT ended up being the better option between the ACS3 Coil Conversion. More adjustability, and you don't compromise future air spring use.

Weird. Maybe you got a faulty cassette. My last 3 bikes got the TRS+ cassette paired with XT 11 speed shifter and medium cage derailleur with a KMC chain. Always perfect from the get go and shifted better than the 11-46 XT cassette every time...With the med cage derailleur I also get a shorter cage than Eagle for more clearance.
