PUSH – to put forth vigorous or persistent efforts.
As we move further into 2008 PUSH Industries is excited to announce a new development program geared specifically towards the Downhill Racing segment of the marketplace.
Darren Murphy from PUSH commented, “Our goal really is to see what kind of performance we can get out of MTB suspension if we remove the thinking that we’re restricted by the stock shock or fork chassis. It’s not that we’re working with junk, in fact far from it! Today’s MTB suspension components are precision works of art with tremendous performance and reliability. At the same time however, manufactures have to stay within certain guidelines to deliver the product to the mass market. We have some great resources such as our leverage rate analysis hardware and software, on-board data logging, dynamometer, and CNC machining capabilities all under our roof so we feel like we’re really well equipped to take this on.”
The first program for test riders will be focused around the new Rock Shox Vivid rear shock. Specifically the Santa Cruz V10 and Iron Horse Sunday platforms, as both of these bikes have unique characteristics. The new PUSH World Cup Tune features separate external Hi and Low speed compression adjust, bringing the Vivid into the company of the Cane Creek Double Barrel as a completely adjustable 4-way damping system. This combined with new proprietary seal and wiper systems designed specifically for maximum sealability and minimum friction, 5th generation VxR high flow internal main cylinder piston, reservoir extension for increased oil and gas volume, bottoming system, and position-locking adjustable spring retainer all ensure that this unit will be ready to rip!
