Overall Review:

This fork is a really good option if you like stiff suspension. If you don't then you'll probably have to swap the spring to a lighter one (if your on the lighter side). The controls are really simple: compression and rebound. Most people don't even know how to properly set up their World Cup forks so why buy one? The RC is very basic and will feel good over roots, rocks, drops or whatever else the trails throw at you. My only complaint would be that I loose traction in the corners because I run my suspension really stiff the fork wont settle down in the corners because there isn't a high/low speed compression option. I also find that the seals start to leak about a month after you first use it. It's a great fork and has served me very well.
