These supposedly dampen small vibrations, thus making the bike faster.
In order to dampen vibrations you need to absorb and dissipate the energy in the vibrations. That's a fact.
However, you need a mechanism to dissipate said energy. Your shock is compressed between two points forcing fluid through small holes which heats the shock, playdoh is heated when worked, piezoelectric crystals transform mechanical energy into electrical.
Axxios-tech has not disclosed the mechanism that performs this function. And extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
The best evidence I could find is a Swiss high school that has found that they can decrease the amplitude of vibrations in a plate by applying the stickers in the right position. Something you could also achieve with bubble gum.
With that said, if the goal was to decrease vibrations, by any whatever small amount, it wouldn't be impossible to achieve with a sticker. A highly viscous fluid in a sticker placed in a location with shear strain would dampen vibrations. It would do so by a very small, but measurable amount.
But this ain't it. The only function this sticker has is to make people who don't understand the premise pay for it.

Do you claim to understand quantum electrodynamics?! This works with proprietary technology to reduce the stress in the air! Due to odd effects concerning the atmospheric entropy when the atomic disorder is lowered rain will stay away and you can shred in the dry. This is how Danny won in Champery

AGREED. 2200 WORDS IS TOO MUCH READING.
WHAT IS THIS, A BOOK? DON'T MAKE US THINK, VITAL.

First, NOT going to complain about word count. Nice to read some thought out, articulate expression instead of a 250 word caption. Thank you.

As for wants - better bikes for less money?

How about maybe just the same bikes for less money? Bikes are pretty fancy nowadays, and besides wheel...more

It's a ROVAL wheel up front, and since he is on a Specialized bike i would assume that it is a stock wheel, so no funny axle.

Defenitly 650b, it is shown in the video.
It seemed a bit shorter than an usual enduro fork (I would guess at about 140-ish) but it could be the inverted design.

Nah... It is not (only) the bike. Peaty for example rode quite "slow" today, compared to what he has done before on this track, even though he has been on the same bike since 2008-ish?

There is also lots of reasons to hate on Gwin. Not only is he the fastest guy. He also left his team like a douchebag.
I liked him before, but now... Not so much.

Biggest misconception is that people in the bike industry make money. Ha ha ha. Wait, I work in the bike industry....damn.

Nice bike!
I am considering grip shift as well with shimano xt brakes, but i have heard the gripshifters take up a lot of space, making it hard to reach the brakes.
How is it in your oppinion?
