hi all , ive tried copying and pasting in google to find out about these forks but all specs etc are writen in a way that you only understand if you allready understand and im clueless.
can you look at the following link please and tell me a little about the fork, i understand that it has 140mm travel, and i think i can lock it out straight??
i dont know if it has a floodgate (which i THINK is kind of like lockout but it will compress if the hit is big enough??)
and the other thing id like to know is if its adjustable i.e. will i be able to set it to 130mm , 120mm etc etc

thank you for any help , also is this bike good for jumps and a few little tricks??
thankssssssssss very much :)

    For fork info

    it is not a jump bike it is an AM/XC type bike.

    tried clicking the more info bit next to the fork on the spec list in your link?

    Yes they do have Floodgate.

    And Lockout (fork will still have ~20mm of travel even when fully locked out)

    # Travel: 140mm
    # Dropouts: Standard Q/R
    # Suspension: Dual Air
    # Adjustments: Rebound, Lockout and external adjustable floodgate
    # Poploc remote lockout included

    Should be able to reduce travel by adding a spacer.

    Not really designed as a jump bike, but will take trail jumps, not dirt jumps
