The rock shox reba SL suspension fork
The rock shox reba SL suspension fork really amazed me in terms of performance and quality. At first glance it was hard to see any reason why I should spend money on this suspension fork. But when you put the cosmetic aspect to one side and actually put the fork to good use, you'll be amazed too!

The first thing that struck me about the rock shox reba SL suspension fork was it's lock out adjuster. Unlike some forks the SL lock out adjuster felt a little tight but solid as it should be considering the job it's doing!

Some forks give when the seals bed in and makes the fork feel and sound clunky, but this fork even after a fare few miles is still rock solid. Another thing I noticed about it was that, even when the lock out was engaged the fork still had the perfect amount of travel for those off-road climbs.

A lot of forks of this quality are on the heavy side so it's nice to find a fork light enough for XC and strong enough, all in one great package.

Yep, this is one hell of a suspension fork for XC and trail riding. Apart from the lack of flashy graphics, I would say that it's faultless and would recommend it to anyone!
