 BUY THIS FORK ! Ive rode nearly every fork out there and i promise u when these are dialed in correctly they destroy boulders like twigs and thats no bull its a straight up fact. I own the 2013 version but im guessing the 2011s are just as good and from looking at pictures they look almost exactly the same makes me wonder why i payed an extra £200. These forks can switch between 160mm and 120mm of travel plus u can change the rebound speed of the fork via the bottom of the right fork leg, they also have a low speed compression switch (witch does exactly what it says on the tin) and the kashima coat stanchions are just too much for words. In a nut shell this fork is an absolute trail eater and a must buy for any serious XC/All mountain rider.

 My first venture into an air fork. The TALAS adjustment has never seemed to drop the full claimed 40mm, but it does drop at least an inch - enough to change the head angle and make climbing easier. Also, coming from zocchi and RS coil forks, there seems to be a bit more stiction, though I can't say I've really noticed it during riding.

Great fork, worth the money in my opinion. I enjoy knowing I'm backed by a great company and that the fork will handle ANYTHING - even my sketchy line choices and cased landings - without flinching.

 This fork is rad. Just ordered one and I am super stoked for its arrival. The extra hundred or so for the Kashima coating is definitely worth it

Rebound - is how quick your fork returns to a fully extended position after being compressed. Almost all after-market forks feature external rebound adjustment for easy fine tuning.
Stanchion material Kashima Coat
Steer Tube 1.125
Damping FIT
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 20mm
Compression Low speed compression
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.
