Mitch Ropelato's Prototype Rear Shock at Val di Sole - Pit Bits: 2013 Val di Sole World Cup - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

Mitch Ropelato is running the same shock we saw previously at the Port Angeles Underworld Cup, although this appears to be a newer version given the color change. Could it be made by Öhlins? The distinctive yellow spring and gold body say yes, but aside from acting as a consultant on the Cane Creek Double Barrel, the company hasn't dabbled much in MTB, instead focusing their efforts on motorcycle and auto racing. More when we get it...

    Must be an early proto or a proprietary specialized shock as it will not fit in many frames.
