The Review
Great fork with fantastic looks and function. Has a lock out feature that totally stops the fork from moving when turned on. Plush enough for a rider of my weight >50 kg and can adjust the stiffness with the air pump. The sticker of mine has peeled off slightly cause of a crash. But overall i am satisfied with this fork.

Great looks with great performance.
Lock out ( tho i hardly use it )

Sticker peels and scratches easily but hell if you want it to be in mint condition then i guess you won't find out what the fork can do. Squeals a tad when it compress but i guess it is cause of the air , or there is something wrong with my fork but it doesn't bother me enough to complain. And also abit on the expensive side for an average fork.
