Forks: Recon vs Aion

Hello.
Looking at a new FS MTB. I found 2 bikes in my price range. Other than the forks, they have similar components
One has Suntour Aion 35 Boost RC
the other has RockShox Recon RL Air.
Would like to know which is considered the superior fork.
Any help appreciated
Thanks

My opinion is probably unpopular, but I would choose the Aion. I've had an Axon for 6 years and it's a really nice fork (liked it better than a Reba).

I'd say Aion as well.
