all about the

X-Fusion Velvet RL QR 100mm, 1-1/8", White

X-Fusion's flagship cross country fork has been reintroduced and reinvented for 2011, and it looks sweet!  With completely new internals and chassis, plus the addition of a lockout, the fork has still dropped over half a pound now weighing just over 3 pounds.  The damper system of the velvet has also proven to be ultra smooth giving comfort on the descents when you're not locked out and hammering out the climbs.

  • The RL damper has rebound damping adjustment and uses an on-off switch for lockout (Remote lockout lever available)
  • Internal travel adjust is offered within all of our forks using a push-pin ladder system on the air-spring rod

Review of the X-Fusion Velvet RL QR 100mm, 1-1/8", White:
When my original Manitou Shock had cracked at the arch, I needed to find a 130mm 9mm QR Fork so that I would not change the handling geometry of my Jamis XCT. I didn't want to spend 600 on a Fox, Magura, DT Swiss or Rock Shox. Did some research, talked to some proffesional bike Mechanics, Lots of great things said of the X Fusion brand, especially the Velvet. I am usually a firm believer that "you get what you pay for", so I was hesitant to go with a manufacturer that wasn't one of the main players, and cheaper with all the same bells and whistles. But....I Decided to go outside of the box. WOW!! Very glad that I did. Weight, Adjustment and price. Fantastic!! The amount of adjustments on the rebound (30) and the oh so smooth and light air damper system, I like the fork more everytime I ride it. The lockout knob is BIG, easy to turn on and off during some of the climbs of the Iceman Challenge, in N. Lower Mich. Ive heard their custy service is fantastic, I just hope I have no reason to find out. Just ordered an Enix 100mm w/Lockout to put on my Reynolds 853 Signature hardtail. Hopefully I will be just as pleased with that one.

Summed up: Light, adjustments, ease of use, and price, unless you absolutely feel you have to spend $600 , don't overlook the Velvet!!!

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the X-Fusion Velvet RL QR 100mm, 1-1/8", White:
Ounce for ounce, dollar for dollar an incredible value. I feel like I am riding a new bike. And I am suddenly a much better rider, too, up and over obstacles I wouldn't have even considered attempting in the past and bombing downhills with confidence rather than slowing down and trying to determine the perfect line. I just can't say enough. You can pay twice as much and not get close to the same quality, especially if you are paying $500-$600 for a fork marked down from its "original" retail price of $1000-$1200. Just get it.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.
