Those forks slowly become the alternative suspension forks for the riders that want to get good performance at a slower price than the competitors. SR Suntour also completes their products with Quick Service Product, that really help the riders to maintenance their forks by themselves. Now, SR Suntour again makes some updates for the Durolux as one of their high-end forks in the market.
