Englund Total Air

Does anyone know how much weigh i can shed off my judy TT if i install the cartridge? Also, anyone know where to get it cheap? But i think it won't make sense if the catridge cost more than the fork.

guessing anywhere from half a pound to more than 1 pound. can't think of anywhere to get them cheap, they are $60-100 depending where you shop. i bought my judy sl used from someone and he installed the total airs already so i wouldn't know. but my judy sl is sub 3lbs for sure.

Check out this site: www.ekosport.com

I just installed mine on a 2001 Judy SL this weekend. Cost was $107 for the 100mm travel version. I dont have a scale but they quite a bit lighter and they are smooth like butter compared to the "rusted slinky's" I pulled out of them. I weigh 230 and am still messing around with pressure but a definate upgrade considering a new fork would cost 3 to 4 times as much. I'll give a better review after I can take them out and "abuse" for a while.

I remember seeing something "extra" you needed for the TT version, they will have all of the information after you plug-in your year and make of fork on their website.
