Suntour Durolux

Recommended Posts

Looking at getting a AM/FR fork, and saw that Suntour had a recent-ish addition to its range of the Durolux. It seems to have 1 or 2 good reviews, and is about half the price of its competitors (was originally looking at getting a Rock Shox Lyrik or Marzocchi 66 ATA).

 

Anyone had any experience with these new ones? Or should I bite the bullet and go for one of the others?

Been riding the 2013 140-180 travel adjust Durolux for a few months now. I am on the heavy AM/light freeride side of things and have had no complaints as yet. High and low speed compression adjust and on a relatively light tapered platform.

 

One negative is that the rebound adjustment is not as distinct as it's RS counterparts, but beyond that it's been holding up really well.

Andy, what sort of price can one expect to pay and where did you find the fork?
