After a full year riding on my Carrera Vengance it is now time to upgrade my forks. I'm in the market for a set of air forks and have narrowed it down to three options.

SR Suntour Raidon XC LO-R TS
£160

Rockshox Recon Silver RL Solo Air
£203

Manitou Marvel Comp
£240

I am swayed towards the Raidons simply for the price and i think they will be a massive improvement to my current XCT's, likewise any over fork in existence. I like the appeal of Rockshox and how servicable they are. The Manitou are something a little different but almost cost the same as what i paidfor the bike.

I assume stay clear of Rockshox Coil forks as an "upgrade"?

Financially i know it would make sense to put the money towards a better bike but i like my Carrera and want to see how far i can take it. 8)
