works like a dream n seems tough so far.
handles small bumps n large hits very well.
had problems with sluggish rebound leaving little adjustability after having set on max (there is another model with more adjustability, sumthin like 360o compared to 90o rotation on the adjuster knob).
its not the lightest fork but nothing awfull
only reason i wouldnt suggest this to a friend is the adjustability thing,i would suggest the next model up with the full adjustment option.
just like to add that you should pump the rebound up to max or else you may end up doing what i did n sliding twenty foot across the tarmac after hitting a lil stone at a slight angle and finding no front wheel grip.
but then, im a fairly light rider at 10.5st if that'll affect it?!
also the recomended pressures (regarding rider weight) seem a little low for most.
No I would not recommend it to a friend

cheap, looks good, is good.
I have been riding them for a bit less than three months and I have not found the slightest thing wrong with them yet.
A great all-round fork, its not too soft and not too stiff. It's great for xc, light freeride and light jumping thanks to adjustable height and rebound.It's well worth investing in. You even get a free sticker with the forks! It smooth out pretty much anything in its path, a well made fork by rockshox.
