Out of the box these forks felt very good. Set them up in my usual way, went with the recommended air settings and ran the rebound as fast as I could get away with. Forks feel as stiff as the 36's on my other bike despite the 15mm axle instead of a 20mm. The maxle lite is a huge improvement on the old Rock Shox bolt thru QR. First couple of rides I've been impressed. Pretty plush, rebound needed a bit of work to get under control, travel feels more than 160mm (I've got one token in). Only downside is that the forks are totally outclassed by the Vivid Air on the back of my bike. I reckon I'll be able to narrow that performance gap with more tuning though. If it was an option I'd go for 4.5 stars for now. I ordered from Merlin because I knew they'd send the forks boxed with all spares, pump etc unlike other big internet stores.
The best single crown forks at the moment. This is the second pair I've had as I also have the 140mm 29er version on my Tallboy LTc.
Super plush action, rigid and light with it. Install the 2 red bottomless tokens before you even fit them to the bike. They make an already awesome fork even better as they help ramp up the end stroke and the bike is supported in the mid stroke more.
Merlin once again the best price on the web and fast delivery.
Amazing fork. Plush out of the box. Good weight, super stiff. First ride on proper terrain says all the postive press is bang on.
