 I like it very much, cheap, easy, durable, just does it's work. There's no need of compression adjustment, you don't even have to change spring if you need harder one, just put a couple of coins above the spring and that will do. The only weakness is it's weight, but it's ok for the price.

 very simple, but verry good moving, i used for more than 8 months withoiut any porblems, best vale/price combination on the market, for dirt jumping you dont need any adjusments in my oppinion only the rebound, wich is good in this fork, a litle bit hevier than a fox,but cheaper, and problbly survies more( the alu neck version)

 i beleive this is the perfect fork for any dirt jumper who doesnt have alot of money to waste. its very adjustable, strong, definately way better than the DJ series, and the weight is just below average for the price range. PERFECT

 These are awesome, got them for £200. (Dunno how much that is in Canadian or American dollars). Very easy to set up, maybe a little hard to cut through the steerer to adjust to the right length, but is that a bad thing having a strong steerer? The worst thing about these forks is not being able to adjust compression; you will need to get different strength springs. But if you wanted that you'd get the 318's or 409's.


To sum it up: Very good fork, works amazingly, (as long as it is well serviced, and checked regularly) cannot adjust compression.

 been using these for dirt jumping and freeride/downhill on a Tomac omen hardtail, absolutley faultless!!
very light and strong that can take a fair bit of abuse, can be adjusted from either 80mm to 100mm,has rebound adjustment and 20mm maxle...Smile
my friend has the purple argle 409's,not much difference in the feel of the bike between the 302's and the 409's, obviously the 409 is better but not significantly noticeable,if your looking for a quality shock buy any of the argyle series,if your on a budget then the 302's, you cant go far wrong these!!

 Pros: take abuse, ride smooth for dj or trails, low maintenance, somewhat lighter than other dj forks.

Cons: couldn't find em in white, the whooshing sound sometimes gets on my nerves. but then again who cares.

I got my factory direct and saved a boat load of money lol, love these forks for what they are.

 Personally, I think that this fork is much better then the 318 and 409 because, if your riding mostly are dirt and park riding then you want a pretty stiff fork and yes, you can spend a bit more money to get the air control or flood gate options but its not worth the extra cash in my opinion. Also, the price is pretty sweet for a quality fork.

 found these for a bargain £120 in a for sale section.
have been performing faultlessly on my giant stp.
would recommend they are very stiff with regards to steering, they are forgiving on landings but firm enough to take a decent hit without bottoming!

 i use it and i love it. its lighter than 318 and not as complex as a 409. this fork rides really smooth and i have no negative feed back for it. it is a really durable fork and can take anything you throw at that is resonable...**dont do massive drops** haha pretty straight forward. this fork is amazing for dirt jumps and if you have the rebound adjusted to how you like it, it will alow you to jump with exserting yourself too much

 A bit heavy, but it's not that bad. If u're usin it only for dirt and street its extemely sufficient ;] damping is just correct, no artiiff adjustments, u don't have to change nothing if you want to ride, not to care about your ride. Progressive, quite sensitive at the beggining, can rebound quick. Cheap, an I was fed up with the smooth work od HSCV (monster, i used to hit some drops, never ridden DH). If U only need something that would help your wrists to survive.

 Brilliant fork, strong, durable. I have been running this fork on my everyday bike since the start of the year and love it. I use it for dirt jump, street, park, xc, and light dh/ fr. the maxxle is very stiff, and unlike the dj1's my friend has, they are very progressive through the travel. I have never bottomed them out. 10/10 i think!

 I run the basic low end Argyle 302 on my jump bike just coz it was the only black one and it matched my bike and its nice and simple. Been very pleased with it. Think mine is the 07/08 model

 great fork, never bottomed it out, better that the dj series anyday!!!, if you can afford go with a 318 but if your a lil' shy on cash then the 302 is your best bet

 Great fork for street, dj and park. Have been riding for about half a year and still don't regret spending the extra money to get the 318.

RockShox Argyle 302 (MSRP $393) — Dirtjumping / Freeride fork.

Specifications Compare to other Forks

Release Date 2009
Price $393
Weight 2485.68 g
Color Options Purpletrator
Travel 100 mm
Travel - refers to the distance the wheel can move in respect to the frame. Typically measured in millimeters, most forks range from 80 to 203 mm of travel
Spring Coil
Crown Single
Body Type Magnesium, Maxle 360 20mm axle, IS disc mount
Rebound External Rebound
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 32mm 4130 tapered wall Steel, chrome
Steer Tube 1.125
Damping Rebound
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 Maxle
Compression no adjustment
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.
