Hello guys,

I am currently looking to purchase my first "real" MTB and wondering if you could point me out which fork would be better suited for my type of riding.

I am located in California and will mainly riding trails that are usually guttered/rocky or have sections of really loose gravel. I do enjoy riding downhill and would like a fork that could provide some good dampening while going down this type of terrain.

So far I am looking at the Vitus Nucleus bike and wondering if the Rockshox fork on the VRS model is worth the extra ~120.

RockShox 30 Silver TK Solo Air 27.5”, Solo Air Spring with Turn Key Damping Adjustment, Tapered Alloy Steerer, 120mm Travel, 9mm QR


Suntour XCR LO-R 27.5", Air Spring with Pre-Load Adjustment, Hydraulic Speed Lock-Out with Rebound Damping Adjustment, 1.1/8" Steel Steerer, 120mm Travel, 9mm QR
