XC 32 is the next TORA right?!

Postby dflash » Wed Oct 31, 2012 10:45 am

i decided to buy a fork for my 2012 specialized hardrock sport disc.
So should i buy a new Rockshox XC32 2013( whic some think is the new gemeration TORA)
or to buy an old TORA 302 or 318(2010)?
Some say that the XC 32 has motion control ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
the xc 32 has 120mm and the tora has 130mm travel.
the other option is to buy a recon or a sektor(150mm)

Don't go any longer than 100mm on a Hardrock. It rides really nicely with a 100mm Tora but any longer and the geometry gets a bit strange and it doesn't handle at all well. Any more than 100mm will invalidate the frames warranty.
Some of the Tora's have motion control. You will get better value buying an older Tora.

XC32 is basically the same as the lower end Toras.

Recon Silver is similar to higher end Toras, but are not available aftermarket with Motion Control.
