 Very nice fork. I got this fork on my bike and love the adjustable height adjuster. The for does it job very well and haven't had any major problems. The only thing I have had problems is the height adjuster you have to take apart and stretch the three little spring If you use it a lot. But other than that is is a great fork.

 It was a pretty good fork. I used it for probably 6 months or so, after time though the compression knob seemed to not be doing alot of changes in the stiffness of the fork. I'd rate it maybe 7/10

 This is a great fork. Lower The travel to 95 and stiffer 'er up and you've got a street fork. Soften it and put it to 140 and you're riding some freeride.

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 Maxle
Compression Low speed compression to 'Lock' with internal Floodgate
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.
