I have had my eye on the RockShox Recon Silver Coil forks as the replacement for the Pilot Air on my old GT, however I have also spotted this within a similar price bracket:
Suntour Raidon RLD Air Forks
I have researched these forks on the internet, however have not found that many reviews on how they perform.
What sparked my interest was that these were Air Forks Ė which means in theory, I should be able to adjust the psi to suit my weight/riding style a little better than the coil RockShox. They also appear to be a little lighter as well.
Does anyone have any feedback on how these shocks perform or Suntour shocks in general? Are these actually suited for XC (and not just marketed this way), or are they better suited for fluffing about around town?
As these will be shipped from CRC to Australia, I really dont want to end up with something that will need to be shipped back for warranty repairs as a result of buying a 'junker' if I can help it.
I currently ride a 2003 GT Avalanche with a handful of upgrades on things that have broken over the years (brakes, crank, pedals, wheels, etc). Ideally I donít want to spend more than the bikes worth on a new fork, which is why I am shopping around the $200 price bracket.
I ride 2 or 3 times per week, mostly XC trails that have steep rocky/hilly sections and technical descents with small fast paced drop offs. I would like something that is going to be able to keep up with my riding style, and not something suited for big dirt jumps, flat track or the likes.
Thanks in advance
