Been waiting for this to drop ~550gm off the front of EG2.
Just like all my other X-Fusion forks-- I always get more travel than bargained for. The 160mm Slant came out to be.................................. 175mm!
Wait.... Put it against my Vengeance Air 160mm (which actually measured out to be 165mm)
Almost the same A-C! ???? WTF... The stanchion is definitely longer... looked again-- but the lowers on the Slant is apparently shorter by almost the same amount "gained" in the travel.
Ok -- now its just a matter of the fork's stiffness as the total exposed stanchions are close approaching the 180mm level. ..
Got to pack. Red eye flight coming up so just a couple of pics of the new fork. Full review to follow next week
