Woah. This is *the* fork to get.
- I've put it through the wringer
- True to size
I ride a Specialized S-Works Epic HT and my wife rides a Specialized Epic FS. We both ride the SC 34, mine has the lockout on top of the fork and my wife rides the remote lockout version. Having now ridden both versions here's my .02$ that the remote lockout is absolutely the way to go. The remote lockout included with the fork is silky smooth and fits really well in the cockpit mounted above on top of the right side of the bar to keep a paddle style dropper on the left. The levers on the remote both have short smooth throws and are easy to actuate even while the fork is under load. Something I noticed with a manual lockout is that if I was unlocking the fork while putting pressure on the stanchions during a climb the lockout would feel 'stuck' and be hard to open up. Which isn't great when you have a second with a hand off the bars before descending. With this remote version there's no 'stuck' unlock feeling. Also, the remote lockout version is a 2-step either locked out or full open vs. the manual which has a 3 position lever. The middle position on the manual lockout is hard to find while riding because the clicks aren't perceptible through gloves, especially on trail making this middle setting functionally useless. The remote was also really easy to install using the FOX website videos, it took maybe 10 minutes with most of that faffing around with removing grips / other cockpit bits. Riding wise... When you start descending this fork is straight up cheating. I'm a heavier rider (205) and feel absolutely no flex and get beautiful small bump compliance after playing with tokens. Could not recommend this fork more highly - it makes you faster and makes riding more fun which is the goal right? It's also definitely saved me from going over the bars on steep / techie blacks in Sedona where a hardtail shouldn't belong but the SC 34 makes even the scary stuff manageable on a HT bike.
