 Solid fork! The Maxle-lite works perfect with my Transition Revelation hub. Dual Air isn't my favorite, but it works (I prefer the simplicity of single air forks). Had the Motion Control damping replaced under warranty by RS (blown seals). They upgraded me to a newer version and it's been working great. The new models are lighter and more Trail oriented, but mine is still going strong.

 Like as strong as a PIKE but much lighter and far more adjustable. It can be wound down with u-turn on some versions but i dont bother as the damping is controlled enough to allow even vicious climbing on full travel.

But - I ride quite aggressivley and the reccomended settings are much more suited to trail riding - having a shock pump is a must for this fork as i do not know a single rider whom has been content with the base settings - i run mine about 40psi harder than reccommeded and i find this allows be to pop and carry speed through compression much better.

overalll - i dont see why anyone would buy any other 140mm 20mm thru axel fork - the best dampers - the lightest - the stffest - and the most adjustable - with dual air the PIKE is now redundant - just make sure you set it up right. Happy hunting fellas

 I have the older version and use it primarily for dj, trail, street, and commune. It is very light, adjustments work fantastic, and is a well rounded fork.

 Great fork, it's stiff and extremly light. The fork also has the option of a 20mm or 9mm drop out.

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 external 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.
