First Ride: The New EXT Era Fork is Very, Very Promising
@Darwin66: Not sure about the X2, as I rembember some nuances in damping that I can't find in the super-deluxe but, the lyrik ultimate is effin' outstanding. It makes my former 36s look like some low lvl suntour, it is that good.

@Happypanda1337: Not a fox fan. I only liked the X2 but RSses are 50% off when comparing it, without being 50% off the performance. And, like I've said earlier, RS 2021 ultimates forks are so good that I still can't believe the difference from my lyrik 3 years ago or to the two factory 36s after that. Probably there are better forks out there but, they will not make me significantly faster. I will try the Mezzer at some point as it is basically the same price.

@Sirios: Similar to how most ppl buy big SUVs but they never get out of asphalt; they just like the higher driving position and greater perceived security. Cheers.

@lexdamis: So, by your own admision, you brought a fork for show-off. On this train of thought, you should buy the full rainbow axs, 52 cogs, obviously, latest enve wheels and cockpit and, of course, a kashima dropper to match. Don't get me wrong, I love high performance parts and I'd buy/I am buying everytime the highest one I think I need, in relation with how the part is going to be used but, there are some components which are useless from a usability pov, unless you are very rich, case in which it does not matter. Me and probably a lot of PB users/readers cannot build show/exposition bikes with the highest bling; I mean, I/we can but we won't, as we value riding over looks. If mtb-ing is another hobby option after helicoper rides, track days in aggeras and yachting in the caraibes, then good for you men, you have reached success in life and I aplaud you. But, for most of us, spending 1600 Euro on a fox, when I can spend 900 on a Zeb and the rest of it I can put it towards a better frame or a better wheelset or even half the money for one week in Austrian Alps, yeah..for me, and probably for a lot of us, not getting a fox 38 is a no brainer. If I get crazy and want to spend that amount, well, it will be on a boutique racing fork/shox like ext or fast. But I'm not, as I have said, bikes are ment for riding, not for showing, so I'll stick with my ultimates and spend the difference on other things that add value to my life.

Field Test: 2020 Canyon Lux - A Very Fast Baseline
@WheelNut: Most of the xc races is my country don't have too much(if at all) tech climbing and descending. There are a couple where you could go dh on your trail-enduro bike but those are a few and the no. of participants is less than 300, in one case, less than 150 ppl. For the most of them, participants from 1500 ppl and above. On those, with smooth fire roads up or down and smooth wide trails on 20-30% on the total length of the race, for those, it is the perfect bike. For MVDP, it does not matter as he could ride my niece bike on a WC course and still finish 2 laps in front of 99% of us.

@Sirios: If by average you mean beginners, then maybe, yeah. But any rider that has 3-4 years of trail riding behind him will feel diferences in how a fork performs.

So, basically, the bike every amateur xc racer needs(efficient smooth and fire road climber) but no one really wants as it has a lousy(read dated) geo and a harsh suspension feel.

@DirtyRider13: As long as a fox 38 kashima is the same money, I'm not quite sure what is the niche you're talking about. From a brand/image pov, maybe yeah; I'm still hoping to have other fork manufacturers join the party and ruin fox supremacy.
