i run the 160’s on my bfe.
i forget that they’re there on a variety of terrain (mostly riding the tweed valley week on week). they just work. they absorb the ” bumpy bits” prettty darn well.
never bottomed them out and not for a lack of trying.
for the money, no competition, from what i can see.
love em. 😀
ps you can get two models, i think: the external travel adjust (DLA) and the non DLA one. true lockout on both, not like the bit of travel you get on rockshox. i went non DLA, figuring there’d be less to go wrong. don’t miss it or nuthin’.Posted 4 years agosimonbownsSubscriber
We’ve had really good feedback from these (well, the whole range actually!) – several folk running full travel Slant, several dropped to 140 etc. They’re simple, but well made – rather that cheap/naff and loads of surplus adjustments.
Dead simple lowers service, they’ve got instructions for that on their site too.
We’ve just had a few 160/Black Slants arrive – over here on our shop site.
Vengeance is a 36 stanchion, bigger+beefier. What travel are you thinking of running at?

Yes they will, literally just looking at some.Posted 4 years agosimonbownsSubscriber
Blower – either way then!
Slant for a bit lighter, versatility of air spring, cheaper.
Vengeance would need spacing down from 170mm, bit heavier, but a sturdier chassis (not to call a Slant weak mind!)
If you’re pedalling up/around too, I’d lean towards Slant.
