    Epicon fork Differences

    I am thinking of getting an Epicon 26" 1 1/8 fork, from the SR suntour website there are many models of Epicons whats the difference between them? Also on some online sites they have x1 & x2 models. Whats the differences between x1 & x2?

    Thanks in advance!

    Here's the variations of the (all mountain) forks. Most of it deals with the damping adjustment.



    Here's 3 compared so you can see what the differences are, obviously the ones with more damping control/options are going to be the pricier ones.


    You are just going to have to do some research on what you need and choose the appropriate fork.

    the crown is different. X1 has hollow crown, X2 has not.
    X1 is slightly lighter and a bit more expensive.

    well, it's a thread resurrection but maybe this info will help out others who are trying to figure out Epicon fork differences:

    X1: hollow forged crown, 1++ grams lighter than X2.
    X2: solid forged crown.

    TA: travel adjust (knob)
    LO: lock-out (knob)
    RL: remote lock-out (handlebar lever)
    RC: Rebound + compression adjustments (knob)
    R lite: rebound only (knob)

    Good info but where can I find these by looking at the fork? Mine done have an X1 or X2 as opposed to some pics I find online. Even the RL, RC are nowhere to be found. Just Epicon word on one side and a logo on the other
