​FUTURE SHOCK

​Brain suspension technology was developed to deliver the utmost in efficiency on the trail. Whether it's at the front or rear of a bike's suspension, it's able to differentiate between rider input and trail bumps, ensuring that your pedaling forces aren't being wasted in compressing the suspension.

FSR SUSPENSION
We blazed the trail in active and independent suspension, and have been refining it ever since. FSR technology delivers more comfort, control and efficiency than any other suspension design, by effectively isolating chain and brake loads. Through our 20-year progression of FSR we’ve been able to tune the ride to match the experience. The result: FSR technology is used to capture both Cross-Country and Downhill World Championships.

The Future Shock is a revolution is smooth, delivering 20mm of travel without degrading speed, handling, or comfort. In fact, it does quite the opposite. Through a focus on axial compliance, it breaks the mold of what we thought was possible in bicycle design. Find out how we did it.

FACT, short for Functional Advanced Composite Technology, embodies our approach to carbon composites. It's a comprehensive engineering process that guides the development of frames and components, all the way from initial sketches to finished products.
