Although having only ridden this fork a handful of times it appears to be of a good quality. It was easy to set up and there's no weird adjustment dials or fiddly switches or levers. simply set the correct air pressure dial in your rebound and ride your bike. This is being used as an xc/all mountain rig, bolted onto the front of a Transition Smuggler, so far, so good. I might say it doesn't quite have the same mid stroke support found on the latest generation Lyrik or Pike however that's comparing it to a thousand dollar plus fork when it cost less than half of that. As for flex, in real world situations I can't say there's any noticable flex, however hold the front brake and rock it back and forth and it's visable, not noticable. Being intended for trail use not DH shuttles I feel it'll serve it's purpose for the majority of the riders who use it. I can't comment on longevity, so fingers crossed.
