After much anticipation, the long awaited Vengeance is finally here. The Vengeance fork line has lead the way for X-Fusion’s commitment to high quality suspension products. Over the last few years the Vengeance has been brutally tested and refined with help from our diverse group of athletes and experienced engineering team. We have hyped the release of this fork for long enough. It’s time for you to look for yourself. Here are the straight facts about the Vengeance HLR and RC.

Inside you'll find a great video showing the Vengeance's internals.

Read on...

HLR:

The HLR is a twin-tube, cartridge based damper which features high and low speed, independently adjustable compression damping. This gives the rider the ability to customize all aspects of the damping to suit their riding style and bike set-up. The twin-tube cartridge design allows for the ultimate in damping control, performance and weight savings.


RC:

The RC is a twin-tube, cartridge based damper which features low speed adjustable compression and rebound damping. This gives the rider the ability to customize aspects of the damping to suit their riding style and bike set-up. The twin-tube cartridge design allows for the ultimate in damping control, performance and weight savings.

Travel:

The Vengeance HLR and RC is sold at a stock travel of 160mm, but is not limited to the one setting. Internally the Vengeance can be adjusted down to either 130mm or 100mm of travel for specific uses. The Vengeance uses a ladder system allowing a mechanic to change the position the travel stop sits on the air spring.

 Dave? pricey? I've been lucky enough to be running these for a few months now. They have beyond amazing, for the price ($1000aus) I was expecting something similar to a z1/55/lyrik quality of fork. These have blown that out of the water and preform very closely that of a fox 36 that retails for $800 MORE. The rebound unit has an excellent range unlike other companies, the high and speed compression work effectively. The air pressures are a touch high for those using them for heavy duty applications: I run 10 less than stated and are still quiet firm.

They've seen everything from FR to DH to dj and AM and I haven't had one issue. I think with more development and brand development you guys are in for a good ride, and hopefully get fox and others to think about their pricing. Also running the h3 rear air shock with great success too.

 lol I like how I could tell that Theo from ALLOUT Produx did the video in less than 10sec. If I get a new fork for my upcoming trail build I think I'm going to grab me one of these. MAJOR props for them opening up one and showing the build quality and how it works.

 if X-fusion make a dual crown fork i will buy it...! bcuz i like X-fusion shocks they got a brand in me that is better than rock shox and fox its only bcuz they dont made an dual crown im waiting for buying one Wink WE WANNA SEE AN DUAL CROWN FORK !

 have u ever ridden an x-fusion, do you own one. how can you say they are better then fox or rock shox who have set the bar in suspension design, its pretty clear this fork closely resembles a 36 and they really didn't go out of their was to provide any new looking design in my opinion, the cast shape of the lowers looks very cheap.


im just saying they have bassded their fork off the successful 36 you may ask yourself why?
simply said fox knows what they are doing and x-fusion can only practically re-brand their fork.
  • + 2
 well i never said there were better than fox and rock shox... pay attention next time ;o i said they got a brand in me that make me like it more than fox and rock shox...
  • - 3
 brand in me? that makes no sense, what do u mean by that? i thought brand in me would mean that you prefer them more, know what im saying?
  • + 1
 brand is like when i forexample like Scott bikes... and you are right brand is what i prefer...
  • - 2
 i know what a brand is, but when you say its got a brand in me you refer it to meaning it has preferance, preferance is usualy built from experience, you need to compare to provide a preferance wich you havn't done. in other words you have no exclusive reasoning to prefer X-fusion.

 those internals look great, they look closer to fox quality, hopefully at lesser than the fox price point. Hopefully these forks will be serviceable, if not completely at least to some degree.
