 Customer service on this product has been great. It has been serviced with a new mission control and then completely replaced, with almost zero downtime because they shipped the new fork without first recieving the old one first. When its working it is very nice. Can't compare it to a tripple clamp, because ive never had one, but its gotta be the best single crown there is.

 I bought mine second hand, although condition was basically new, for £300 which was quite a bargain. I run the 1.5" steerer and not only does it look awesome it drops the weight. At the moment I'm having some troubles with the MoCo and seals. Stock seals are absolutely hopeless, even replacing oil weekly isn't enough. I've ordered aftermarket Enduro seals though and everbody I've spoke to who owns this product thinks they're great. The stock spring is actually right for this fork, I run about 35% sag which suits my riding. Some issues with MoCo, forks seem to seize when compressed but I'm sure it's nothing TF Tuned can't sort out for me. Overall great buy and suits my 7point perfectly.

 Excellent fork for downhill and freeride use. It handles all the big hits you can through at it. Super smooth and looks super sik! My High and Low speed compression doesn't work but I got them 2nd hand, but the are just perfect for me. They are also good for all mountain riding aswell.

 Awesome fork, I have the 2007 coil, came with my demo 7. Had no problems at all and no leaky seals. Just change the oil in the lowers every so often and it's good to go. I removed the floodgate feature and to me it feels like the oil has more flow in the damper giving it better low speed compression. Recommend to anyone looking for a super plush, strong single crown fork.

 Very nice fork. Top of the line single crown coil fork. No other matches it. If you want a no compromise fork and your wallet has no limit [Big Grin ] Then buy this fork. High/low speed compression works like a dream and reliability is awesome and is of course backed up with a sram warranty.

 Bought the 2011 Totem RC2 DH coil fork, Been running it hard for a month now and had no problems, If anything it seems smoother on every ride. I did change the stock spring to the soft spring because i didnt get enough sag, now its runnign at about 30%, perfect Smile Aside from that its had minimum maintainance yet it still runs perfectly. This fork is perfect for anything from jumping and 4x to shredding the local downhill track. Buy one Smile

 I have the 2010 Coil DH. And after a bit of stiction when new they just got better and better. VERY stiff, big hitting fork. I had some problems with the Maxle jamming for the first few days.

 Better than any Marzochi; Smooth, Flood Gate(with Roco Tst you can lock out your FS, makes it easier to climb hills); high speed compression, low speed compression, Floodgate switch and internal Floodgate, great looks

 One of the best free-ride forks I've had the opportunity to ride. Enough travel to go big coupled with a lock-out that is awesome for longer pedal runs. The fork fine tunes to personal riding style quickly.

 in the 1.5 guise it is without doubt the stiffest feeling fork i have used,with good travel through the first 80% of travel ramping up nicely towards the last 20% of travel.

 Bottom line is that its an awesome preforming fork, but its really unreliable. I had to warranty it twice before all the bugs were removed, but now its perfect tup

 If you like "BIG" go for the Totem, for DH/FR, strong, lite, got 1 and I think it 's the best single crown fork

 Super smooth, plush travel. Ultra stiff with no noticeable deflection. However, you need to clean the seals!

RockShox Totem Coil (MSRP $1022) — freeride fork.

Specifications Compare to other Forks

Release Date 2009
Price $1,022
Weight 2880.31 g
Color Options Galvanized, Black, White
Travel 180 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, post mount disc (203mm min rotor)
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 40mm 7000 series straight wall Aluminum, low friction anodized
Steer Tube 1.125
Damping Mission 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 high speed compression, low speed compression, Floodgate switch and 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.
