Which would you go for? The Reynolds Ouzo Pro Carbon Fork or the Sibex Ti fork? I'm looking for a good combination of toughness and compliance, as I'll mostly be riding burly singletrack.

You are asking a good question. I believe that you should chose the Ti fork. Ti tends to be more durable than carbon. Plus if you crash it you dont have to worry about it. If you break a ti fork, more than likely you have bigger problems (broiken limbs from the tree you hit or the car that hit you).
In my experience you should consider the Wound-Up 'cross fork, but based on your requirements, why not just go with a well made steel fork - probably the best combination of performance, reliability, ride quality, looks, and cost.
