    I have a BOS and RS Pike on my ION 16 26". If you want to minimize weight and like a progressive spring rate get the Pike...if you don't mine ~250 grams more in weight and like a coil feel get the BOS Deville. Both are great!

    Enjoy your build!

    I'd look into XFusion, my Vengeance is a dream! But they have newer designated 650B Forks. If you've got money to burn then:

    The X fusion forks do look good especially at the price, unfortunately I don't think I'll be able to run to the price of those gold forks lol

    There are a lot of new 27.5/650b forks due early next year, Marzocchi 350 NCR, Formula 35, Manitou Mattock... tough choice!
