 It is a good fork for a beginner rider- basic set up and a single air spring. Rebound is basic too. QR is flexy. I would say go for it to introduce yourself into air fork and get used to it before moving onto something better. A+ beginners fork.

 Running a Recon Gold RL solo air w/ 20mm TA set at 120mm travel on the front of my '12 SC Chameleon. VERY stout/strong fork. Eat everything I put in front of it. Perfect addition to my Chameleon. Very happy with fork and no plans to replace. Great job Rockshox, as usual...

 Perfect for local singletracks, had it on my xc bike and it performed flawlessly. It's also very light weight compared to the coil version

RockShox 2011 Recon Gold RL Solo Air (MSRP $0) — SET THE PACE WITH THE LIGHTWEIGHT RECON. With up to 120mm of travel and a 29" option, this lightweight suspension package contains all the features you need to challenge the trail ahead. A stiff aluminum crown married to lightweight 32mm aluminum upper tubes make the Recon Gold a singletrack force to be reckoned with.

Damping Motion Control
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 Regular QR
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.
