Simple and great

Rating:
The Good:

Price, easy set up, reliability, weight, easy to do your own service

The Bad:

You can lose rebound knob.

Overall Review:

Awesome fork for good money (if you look at other fork prices...) and easy settings. It will ride great if you do at least 1 oil changing per season (depends on how much you ride, of course). It has two very basic settings - compression and rebound and you honestly don't need anything else except racing on WC level and even there, some guys race RC forks. You can lose rebound knob if you hit some rocks or fall.. Just setup the fork and remove the knob, you don't need it there all the time once the fork is set-up.

The Good:

Light, plush, easy to rebuild

The Bad:

Front axle comes lose often

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.
