Building up a crit bike (CAAD9) and will need a fork. I have a lead on a 1.0, the price is right, but I'm wondering if such a light fork will get squishy on me. Anyone have first hand experience?

I've recently put a 1.0 in my CAAD9, to me it feels just as stiff as either the Slice Ultra fork or the Slice Si. I race and ride pretty aggressively and the fork has been great. The handling seems unchanged. Looks fantastic, nice crown to headtube transition.

I say go for it

I have one on my R3SL. Works fine. Seems about as stiff as the old Wolf SL and the 3T warranty replacement.

No problems whatsoever. Maybe if you weighed 260 lb :P
