 Pros: Very light and stiff with the 15mm axle, and extremely supple, considering that it's an air fork. Better than my previous coil Rock Shox. Launch control is very smart it really helps you climb. I've never felt any bottoming out but it used it's full travel.
Cons: Not cheap, compression damping is not too effective

DT Swiss Xmc 130 15mm (MSRP $1510) — The XMC forks allow you to build a speedy racebike as well as a comfortable All-Mountain bike. Lower weight and increased stiffness are the traits that make the XM components so versatile. Long climbs are easily conquered with the fork locked and lowered, while all the plush travel makes the descent a joyride.

Damping Open Oil Bath,Negative Spring
Damping - The process of absorbing the energy of impacts transmitted through the forks or rear shock during the compression stroke, and absorbing the energy of the spring during the rebound stroke.
DropOut Options 15mm
Compression Air-Pressure, Compression, Threshold Launch Control System
Compression - This is the damping circuit that absorbs the compression energy force on the damper. Compression damping is used to adjust how quickly a fork or rear shock compresses when hitting a bump, and is adjustable on some products. When compression damping is too soft, this condition allows most of the available travel to be used without attaining control of the wheel. When it's adjusted too firmly, the wheel will jump or "dance" about when hitting small bumps, again failing to gain control of the wheel.
