RockShox Recon Gold TK 26" Suspension Forks




This RockShox Recon Gold Turn Key (TK) 26" is a mid level air suspension for by Rock Shox. This suspension fork is usually fitted to mid priced mountain bike. This Suspension fork features a stiff aluminium crown. This fork features an easy adjustable air suspension and TurnKey damping featuring patented blowoff design. I rode my friend's bike that has this fork on the trail and found it to be good. 

Pros:
  1. This fork is lightweight. Based on the fact sheet, in Rock shox official website, it is approx 1.77kg. 
  2. Parts are easy to find and easy any bike shop is able to service the suspension fork.
  3. Rigid Fork and the dampening works.
Cons:
  1. When descending on long rocky road the Motion Control valving only really gets overwhelmed



In conclusion, I would recommend this suspension fork as it is not very expensive, and it performs well. A well known website Bikeradar rates the RockShox Recon Gold 3.5 out of 5 stars. The review can be found here.
