Is that just a can wrapped around a shock?, or is it a real shock made by red bull?

I just thought of it, but when you go off a drop, image the crunch sound when landing, that would sound cool.

And For you guys who are wondering what that is, you see when you need you coil to support you, Red Bull Comes out to soften your landing, j/k. It's just a can rapped around it lol

Surely it is just there for the picture, but if they have a photo of it being ridden that would be a different story...hmmm... kinda makes me thirsty

But beer cans would be too wide. Red Bull cans work cos they are thin cans.
