As far as value is concerned, the Smashpot’s price seems fair given how many options it allows for in terms of travel adjustment and its broad spring range. It’s also well built and exhibits an incredible ride quality, which serves as a reminder that coil can be superior to air in many regards – in particular if it’s well supported by other design elements such as hydraulic bottom out. The only nagging setback is the substantial weight penalty. For some riders in some situations this won’t matter, but for others it could certainly be a deal breaker. Either way, the Smashpot was utterly transformative in terms of its on trail ride characteristics and it will remain on the front of my e-bike indefinitely."
