    yes, this is true. look at the echo urban fork from webcyclery.com, factionbike.com or trialsin.com

    they are decent .little flexy, but they arent too bad. but they are the same price as the echo urban, and the echo is shorter and isn't as flexible.

    I just bent my zoo forks yesterday when i threw my bike off of a 7 foot tall rock. after 15 months of pretty harsh use. I haven't heard of any echo forks breaking though.

    alot of people have said the koxx forxx break easy, but seriously alexm took a fair while to break his and did some pretty solid taps on them. If they come with your bike id just ride them.

    i have had my koxx forxx for ages, and they have been fine for strength and lightweight as well. I may get some echo pures though soon as i am noit harsh on my forks but would like to be able to run a amaller disc.
