FOX Racing Shox
Just before Sea Otter, FOX dropped a ton of new announcements, including an ultra light XC fork, more boost options, an e-bike specific fork, and some really affordable new models. Oh, and their mid-tier models now come with black stanchions. For more info, check out our full story here.

This year I almost walked past Formula in the pits because I didn’t recognize the booth. They’ve gone through a complete rebranding, that includes a new logo (that honors their Italian heritage) and have adopted purple as the company color. To celebrate, they’re doing a limited release of their forks in their new signature purple.
One unique feature about Formula forks that I was not aware of is that the compression circuit is easily swappable to help fine tune ride characteristics. They spec a medium tune that should work for the majority of riders, but they sell a softer and stiffer circuit as an aftermarket option.

It may not look pretty, but this bundle of wires and computers allows Push to acquire data on suspension performance to compare the effectiveness of differing damping and compression tunes. They use this information to fine tune their own Eleven Six offerings, and perhaps those of consumers in the future.
