Boss kung pang jump and DH mo sya gagamitin eh mag RST Launch kana, tested kona to for almost a year. Mostly pag weekend ang ride namin puro downhill pero ok pa naman sya hanggang ngaun. Actually last 2 weeks nagpalit ako ng fork pero RST launch parin kinuha ko yun nga lang may rebound na yung kinuha ko. Yung luma ko kinuha ng tropa pero satisfied naman sya. May mga kasama kasi kami na naka XCR pero nagpalit rin sila ng rst kasi lumambot kagad yung shock nila. Pero kung XC molang sya gagamitin eh XCR kana kasi mas magaang sya.

RST storm is one tough fork.. plus it has the same lower structure w/ the R1.. There's one i know who replaced his storm's stanchions w/ the R1's and it did fit very well.. making him the only one here to have a DC RST Storm.. he uses it for races.. He's been an RST user for years..

Bought one @Endless last December. Got the coil version because it was cheaper and also because it has Cr-mo tubes. The fork reponds well to street and off-road use.

The travel is a bit high (160mm i think) since it was designed for FR and AM. The coil version of the fork is a bit heavy but the air version is lighter (of course...hehe).

For me, hindi ko i-sacrifice ung frame ko, kc ung Dabomb tora bora XC is for XC tlaga, baka masira lng ang frame mo at mabasag ang headtube mo, try mo n lng ng shorter travel, mahirap magsisi sa huli.

Up ko lang any updates sa mga user about this fork?....because im thinking of buying this or the Suntour Durolux...

price difference between this RST STorm Lux and SR Durolox is no question, i need info on w/c performs best for FR applications...

Default Re: rst storm

sirs,

any feedback?

i've tried the launch and have had it for 6 months now and the only race i've used it on was the transcend in tagaytay. ive been using it for daily commute but the seals have become loose. this is tha same prob i've had with a previous non-lockout xcr.

want to know that if i consider a storm, it wont fail at the seals too.
