    Looks like this is a twin tube shock

    Looks RAD, but def over Fox these days, DVO bring it baby, if Ohlins was available like DVO with servicing and tuning to suit any rig, Id line up for one, unfortunately thats not they're model as yet, got suckered into closing up to the big S, don't even have GWIN riding them, how RAD is that haha.

    Sure looks like a similar layout to the Ohlins / Specialized collaboration... perhaps it has separate Hi / Lo circuits in there, like the double barrel? hmmm..

    I also saw a pick of Greg's WC bike with a prototype FOX air shock on it. .. we'll see what's mounted come race day.

    @Big Bird The "new" ohlins shock has been around for a while in motorsports (also in the form of the Cane Creek DB for that matter). Im sure Fox has been looking into it for a while.

    They're getting desperate. Looks like a copy of the new Ohlins/Spesialized shock.

    Where is that important Kashima coating?

    It's a steel shaft, and steel doesn't anodize like aluminum

    Thanks. I saw that. My comment was more of as anti-marketing sarcasm. What was must have last year is now discarded for "improved results!"

    Also, being steel, it's able to run a smaller diameter.. this means less surface area for seal contact.. therefore, less sticktion.

    That's what they should have been doing instead of increasing the diameter like they did ...
