Your sentence doesn't make sense to me. If you need it explained:

Wow this is an interesting bit of technology worth showing...let's give it an irrelevant title to get peoples attention.

It looks like a large chunk of equipment for a "trail bike" or "endurance race" sorta thing. When I first saw it...I thought it was a DH application. Pretty slik though.

Looks like one of those "enhancer" contraptions you get in your SPAM folder that will guarantee that "you will make her scream with joy". They don't work.

What does it actually do?

I mean, aside from all the usual moving up and down, rebound adjust, etc.

That is found on the Scott Genius bikes. It offers 150mm of rear travel and three traction control settings which can be adjusted from the handle bar. Its also extremely light at 410 grams. Meant for long distance racing and touring. Wish I had a couple grand sitting around

If I had money like that to burn, I would go Curnutt or Avy.
