Just replaced my 29er stock Suntour XCR fork with a Rockshox Silver Recon Soloair TK and saved about 1.25lbs. While I am not one of those people that are obsessed with having a lighter bike, it was pleasantly surprised to see it.
I have read how the Silver Recon is heavy and without knowing how much my Suntour fork weighed, I wasn't sure if there would even be a weight reduction.
Suntour XCR 29" = 5.5lbs
Rockshox Silver Solo Air TK 29" = 4.25lbs (before cutting tube). A bit lighter than Rockshox stated. Maybe since they didn't want to take sales away from the Recon Gold since the Gold is supposed to be much lighter.
Felt 29er: 31lbs 10 ounces now which is still heavy but not a big deal to me.
Have riden it yet but just around a short trip down my street, I could feel that it seems to absorb the bumps much more than the Suntour coil.
