Strengths:    light, smooth,

Weaknesses:    flexes, decreases sprint max

Bottom Line:   
I liked this fork when I originally switched from my steel Fuji frame and fork. Although as I got stronger I can cause it to flex enough that my speed magnet hits the reciever. I only weigh 160 lbs. I feel it is flimsy.

Strengths:    it is carbon, that is always a plus. the steerer tube is also carbon, for weight reduction.

Weaknesses:    none.

Bottom Line:   
this is an excellent fork, it allows me to feel the road without hurting me. it is super light, i wasnt used to it at first, but quickly adjusted. i would recommend this fork to anybody with some cash that wants a good ride.
