Free shipping on complete bike purchases continental U. I would have liked to up the travel to 140mm, but the version that I have can only be internally modified with a 80-120mm travel damper. All in all I was pretty happy with the fork for the money spent, but I'd still like to upgrade to something stiffer and with a better range of adjustments. Free international shipping available with minimum order values. After trying different things, I ran the rebound and compression open 0 clicks out all summer.

It is adjustable which allows you to set the fork for your need. Noise as air travels in shock not unbearable but you hear it. Race-proven plushness and ease of setup means more time on the trail and less time tinkering. Cons: Cheap - After a year of use, my rebound adjuster had to be replaced but it was covered under warranty. Recommendation: For entry level cross country great shock. I have never bottomed it out, and it still had reasonable small bump compliance on the trail.

It ain't no 38mm Marzocchi 66 single crown, but still, it's not as noodly as I thought it would be. When I hit the first root section, I knew it was radically better than coil. A day of slicing through sweet ribbons of singletrack on a bike sporting a 30 Silver will leave you smiling all the way to the bank. Free shipping on complete bike purchases continental U. Also the air spring makes more noise under compression than other rockshox forks do like the Reba or Revelation. The fork spent all summer with 120psi, which is 20% more than what RockShox recommends for my weight. Lightweight and packed full of legendary RockShox technology, the 30 Silver is sure to boost the level of your ride without boosting your wallet in the process.

This is a great fork to get as an upgrade for a low-end hardtail. The adjustments are pretty basic : 3 clicks of rebound, and 5 clicks of compression. The stanchion coating is durable and shows no wear. Absorbs small drops and keeps rolling. I was running the fork with both adjustments fully open, and I wished it had a few more clicks to find the sweet spot. . By closing this banner, you agree to the use of cookies.

Since my Recon is still silent, I might keep my flexy fork for another season. Free international shipping available with minimum order values. Since the stanchions are straight-walled steel and that I have the 120mm travel version it's available with up to 140 mm travel , the fork felt pretty stiff for its construction, even when braking with 203mm rotors. It was packing up quick on braking bumps or root-filled trails, but it didn't dive too much, and handled hard hits better than I had anticipated. The rebound adjustment feels like it would tear when turning it, but once you've found out that it works well when open, you don't need to touch it anymore. I also love the spacers to either raise or lower the ride height.

Recon Silver TK

Rockshox recon

I'm still giving it 4 stars because of the low price, low maintenance, good looks and surprising performance! I have the 120mm travel version with compression lockout and boost 110x15mm axle. This would have probably kept it on my bike for an additional season, but I might invest the money in a stiffer-chassis fork next year. Pros: Lightweight Compression and Rebound Adjustment with lockout Cons: Makes subtle noises Recommendation: So far I am pleased with this fork. Recommendation: If your on a budget, looking to upgrade your low end coil fork, or just need a replacement for a defective fork, Recons are a good choice. I decided to leave it there for the season and see what would happen, but I was surprised. . .
