  • According to basic economic theory, competition in a marketplace is a good thing. As more of a certain type of product comes to market, performance should improve and/or pricing should fall. Does the latest version of the SR Suntour Durolux fit this mold by offering top rung performance at a low...

  • The Good:

    Price, sure.

    The Bad:

    Noisy, a bit noisy.

    Overall Review: It's been a while for me riding the Suntour Auron RC2 (internal adjust) with black stanchion, and maybe it's the time for me to write something about this fork. First, I chose this fork because of the price; it's really a good price, and for this thing the Auron is the winner from most high end ...

  • Review by Evan Turpen // Photos by Dave Trumpore It's no secret that the long-travel bike market is a tough one to crack into. The numbers of product produced is much smaller than other areas of the market and the performance and quality demanded is of the highest level, because it has to be. ...

  • Review by Evan Turpen // Photos by Dave Trumpore Last year I had the opportunity to test my first ever SR Suntour suspension product in the form of the 32mm Epicon-X1 trail/XC fork. The fork showed a lot of promise, especially at its $599 price point, and it left me pondering the potential for...
