I beg to dis agree ! We used top of the line brands to have better reliability and peace of mind on far away trail. this may be true to some but to me and my group we bought them to be use where they where designed to.
well, i respect for your point of view sir, for me, being expensive fork does not mean the fork is invincible, or not even fork, even other parts, expensive=tough is partially a myth...well kanya kanya tayo, cheers.....
I don't need expensive parts, I need tough/reliable parts!!!
does anyone knows where i can find this specific suntour fork?
Travel = 130 mm or 150mm
System = Coil spring / Hydraulic open oil bath
ight Side = Open oil bath hydraulic rebound damping with external adj. on top

Hello. Im a newbie in this site as well as in MTBing. I wanted to set up a decent MTB but the high end forks were way out of the budget. I researched the internet and came across suntour forks which had very good reviews.
I first wanted to get the Epicon model which costs around 4-5k. However, I could not find one. I finally was able to get an Axon (higher model than Epicon) for only 6.3K. It has a remote lock out already and weighs only 3.7lbs compared to the Epicon which was 4.1lbs. I was able to compare the weight since the shop was able to source an Epicon fork as well.
I could not post my review on the fork yet since I will only be able to test it on trail tomorrow. Wish me luck!
hey have fun on the trails tomorrow nikonfanatic. most lower end models of suntour like the xcr do not have much features except for pre-load adjustment and lockout for the other model but still performs well. the axon i think comes with a rebound adjustment already so it should perform better.
We were at Kings the other day and there were new Suntour Duro forks on display there. I think those were the new ones... prolly 09 models or something. Two models to choose from, both are thru-axles and really beefy stanchions with anodized gold color. Pretty pricey though, the black one for P11,500 and the white one with more adjustment knobs at P16,500.
I'm currently using the previous suntour duro model.. Please post your off road experience as soon you can so I could make comparisons.... Thanks! Ride Safe! ;D
hi sir, 1st observation, lighter than my Manitou Trace, 2nd good in absorbing bumps, and responsive (maybe also bec.of the Maxxis Crossmark), that's my observation hope other Duro user can share their review on this fork, tnx.goodday.
