    Rides great for some stuff. Makes your bike feel full rigid for other stuff. Costs 50% more than a Fox 40 with a custom tune.
    How did it not catch on?

    So what do the people do that purchased one of these monstrosities, they wouldn't even let shops service these things.
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    Trump is going to send them $1200 as compensation.

    They've got a suspension shop in SLC handling all repairs and service, luckily the service interval is very high so those that bought dont have to send the fork in often. Sucks, some really good folks out of work. Thats the risk with startups in any industry i guess.

    Well, isn’t THAT coincidental.

    Right, it as nothing to do with the fact their forks look ridiculous and cost nearly 3x the best forks on the market.

    I mean, COVID notwithstanding, this was predictable. Limited advantage over telescoping forks in *some* parameters, clear disadvantages in others. Ugly as fuck which, for better or worse, is a hudge factor for many. Heavy, expensive, primitive damping, and double the price of a top of the line telescoping fork (if you get a deal, haha).

    I applaud their effort but unfortunately they're a victim of drinking their own kool-aid on this one. As conceived, it was always a real long shot.

    I’m surprised. I see these all over. Maybe they sold a higher percentage here in Utah? Still haven’t tried one.

    Very few here in CO. I think I've seen one on the trails. On a Yeti SB130, and the guy loaded it on top of his Audi when he left the lot.

    I think I read they only ‘sold’ 1000 total.
