A Double (Or triple) crown fork does not necessarily have to have Long travel, although that is the way they have gone over the past few years. The advantage Of Triple crown forks is that they are stiffer and offer less flex or twisting movement when the Wheel hits obstructions. If you are into aggressive riding or high speed downhill then these are a definite advantage. However they do weigh a bit more, are more expensive, unless you buy low end, and they will put more strain on the headtube.
