Saw this on Bikerumor's tour of the RockShox facility in Colorado Springs:

The caption - "Reverse Boxxer, anyone? There weren’t enough measurable benefits of the inverted stanchions versus their traditional design, so after testing Rockshox simply stuck with their current format."

A few other interesting bits from the tour:

"Jeremiah Boobar’s bike was sitting near his desk and had the latest iteration of DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating on his fork’s sliders. Rockshox has been testing DLC on and off for five years, and cost seems to be the biggest issue with bringing it to market…it’s just too expensive. Surface finishes like this are tested for their ability to carry lubrication as well as just being inherently slick."

Too bad you think it is a copy because it is upside down. That 'boxxers' had a different axle, legs, sliders and crown, damping, but you know, it is a copy.

Oh man that was funny! Sorry I had to take the first jab, but as an engineering geek I had to.
