In the latest episode of This Is Peaty, Santa Cruz’s YouTube star takes a walk through the Fox Racing Shox headquarters. After meandering through the moto museum, he gets to the good stuff (see our tour here), then it’s off behind closed doors to the R&D room where forks are being tortured and this little treat is being cycled…
Our educated guess is that Fox isn’t the only one testing this new air shock, which shows what appears to be inline compression and rebound knobs that are sized such that they could very well offer independent high and low speed adjustments.
This shock isn’t official yet, so any details mentioned here are speculation on our part, but former Cane Creek (think Double Barrel) suspension engineer Devon Sullivan moved to Fox in 2012, and we may have, um, accidentally seen something like this particular shock being tested on a Scott Gambler.
Until more info’s available from the source, enjoy the video from which it came:
