Here are the key technologies as explained by Rockshox
1. Counter Measure
Engineered For The Elite, the new Vivid conquers several once-thought-impossible engineering feats. Technologies like Counter Measure, which reduces the breakaway force of the shock to virtually zero pounds. Pressure behind the IFP provides damper consistency, however that force pushes the shock to extension. Counter Measure balances the IFP pressure, eliminating the 60 pounds of force traditionally needed to initiate shock movement. The result is extreme sensitivity in initiating shock movement, transforming small bumps in to traction-generating performance.
- Reduces initial breakaway to virtually zero
- Balance system forces provide insane sensitivity and traction
2. Dual Flow Adjust Rebound
Dual Flow Adjust Rebound splits the rebound circuit in two – one circuit for small bumps and pedaling forces and one circuit for big bumps, like smashing rocks or sending big jumps; it’s the confidence-builder that allows the rider to fine tune the ride quality to exactly their riding style.
