One of the great things about a coil fork is its simplicity, especially regarding tuning constraints. The fork came with three coil springs, and the medium one came installed. I like a softer fork, and I was right towards the coil weight limit, so I swapped out the default medium one with the lighter spring. Outside of the spring weight, you can adjust the low and high speed compression and rebound. I left the rebound slightly fast, the high around default, and cranked the low speed a couple of clicks positive, to help with some rare slow speed diving. Otherwise, I have never done anything else again in regards with tuning, which is quite pleasant, and no fiddling with air!
Settings (middle is default):
- Low Speed – 19 of 26
- High Speed – 11 of 22
- Rebound – 15 of 17
- Sag – 35mm
- Purple – 40 lb/in spring rate
I swapped out the coil spring from the default Blue one with a 45 lb/in spring rate, to the lower Purple 40 lb/in version, so that I could get some additional sag and plushness, and it worked perfect for my tastes and riding terrain. It was a simple changeover, and required you to undo the cap on the top left leg, pull out the old coil, drop in the new one, and reinstall the cap.
- Purple => 40 lb/in spring rate, 115–155 weight range
- Blue (default), => 45 lb/in spring rate, 150–180 weight range
- Green => 50 lb/in spring rate, 175–210 weight range
