Long time Fox user and just wasn't thrilled with the harshness of the 36. Lots of fiddling and I just couldn't get it to feel how I wanted without throwing even more money at it. After riding a Mastadon, I wondered if this Mezzer would feel similar. Happy to say it's exceeding my expectations. Very easy to work on and love the very supple early stroke and tunable mid stroke. Best fork I've ever ridden.
Switched from a Fox 36. Night and day difference. IRT is the real deal. Incredible small bump compliance with superb mid stroke support. You literally don’t need to give anything up. Just takes some time to dial it in.
Upgraded fron the Mattoc Pro, same suppleness, simply stronger! Great fork!
