    Do any heavier riders run the Raidon 29er air fork? I'm around 285ish (and working on it).

    Hey Big Steve.

    We don't have any weight restrictions on our forks.

    Cheers, Nick.

    I have to give some big props to Nick.

    I ordered a Raidon for my son on a Friday and had the fork in my office the next Monday. I couldn't believe how quickly it got here.

    Seems like a pretty nice fork. He hasn't ridden any trails with it just yet, but likes it around the driveway.

    Nick, I sent you a PM around a month ago. I would like to have it answered if it's not something too hard to answer.

    Wanted to do this 2 summers ago but,... life

    Tuesday at 1:07 PM PST I emailed about the upgrade.
    At 1:53 PM PST I received a reply with the discount code
    Ordered the part
    at 2:48 PM PST I received the Shipping Order with tracking number.

    Talk about QUICK!

    at approximately 1:40 PM today I took possession of the new fork.
    Serious upgrade within 48 hrs.

    Sooo, now I'm sitting in cubeville with my new fork behind me and I'm wondering why I don't bail due to a bad case of Upgradeitis and go home and get this fork installed...

    Hi All.

    Just wanted to make sure that the new landing page for the upgrade program is here.

    We made some changes to our website to help with Navigation and spiff things up a little.

    Also, with all our forks over $500.00 retail we are offering a WERX tune right out of our warehouse. It includes fork travel settings, air spring adjustments and in some cases tuned negative springs for long travel forks not to mention some other neat little things.

    As the comment above shows, we are shipping out forks pretty quickly so while there is still some summer get your orders in with us or just go out and enjoy the trails.

    What is the difference between the Radion, Epicon, and Epixon? Which are available for a 26" wheel and a 1 1/8" straight steerer?

    I just ordered a Giant Fathom 27.5 1, it comes with an Axon LO-RC 120mm. I have a couple of questions for the Suntour rep here, first I don't see on your website any information on my fork. I only see 80-100mm Axon's in 2 different varieties, can you give me any details on my specific for (owners manual or differences from the 80-100mm version). Also if I decided to upgrade the fork through your company which fork would be the next level up?

    * 2016 models were 80/100/120mm.
    * Forks on the Suntour website are 'aftermarket models' which can different to the 'OEM models' that bike manufacturers put on their bikes, OEM forks sometimes have the specs of the previous year model.
    * Axon Werx are the top model XC fork, what you have is the model below it, there isn't anything in the upgrade program that's better then what you already have.

    The upgrade program is for upgrading very basic coil spring forks to a intermediate air forks with better performance.

    Look under the crown and measure.

    * If it's tapered, take the top cap off the stem and measure size of the top of the steering tube, some tapered forks on Giant bikes have 'overdrive' steering tubes of 1 1/2" to 1 1/4" (1.5" to 1.25") instead of the usual 1 1/2" to 1 1/8" (1.5" to 1.125")
