    You turn it on, compress the fork and it stays stuck down in
    it's travel. This makes climbing easier. There is still 30mm
    of travel for small hits. Just don't forget to turn it off
    before pointing the bike downhill again!

    Instead of locking the fork out, it locks it down into a
    stiffer, shorter travel mode. You flip it on and the next
    bump you hit or the next time you push down on the bars the
    fork will not rebound all the way. Basically it just closes
    the damper oil passage so that some oil is traped on the
    top until you open it again. You can do it on the fly if
    you can reach it.
