The Totem is the king of single crown forks and the god of freeride. With monolithic Maxle lowers sliding on 40mm stanchions and a 1.5in steerer option, it’s as slam-proof a single crown as you’ll get.
Getting the high/low/platform compression damping balance right needs patience. Once there though, the consistent smoothness and precise impact control is unrivalled by all but the best downhill forks.
‘Speedlube’ syringe-based oil changing makes refreshing them after a day of runs easy too, although we do still hear of people having regular problems with Totems.
