HAS ANYONE SEEN THESE BEFORE?!?
Any info on this would be great
I couldn't car less.
Wow that's ugly. Better work well, it sure looks nasty.
"Long travel anti-dive fork, 5" travel, no head-tube dive. The front wheel travels on a vertical plane consequently maintaining a fixed wheelbase. No brake induced compression. Simply put, if you have a 6" travel fork and you apply the front brake, you now have 3" of travel. You lose half of your suspension when you need it the most. Contrarily, the E-Fohrk is a full floating design, which remains active and braking has no effect on compression."

That looks awesome! I'd run it. I bet it weighs a ton though.
Ride bike or bike ride?
When I opened the page I saw the top of the fork and I thought it was normal (it looked like stanctions) but then when I scrolled down wow. That thing looks as though it would way quite a bit.

No I have never seen one. And not interested, thank you.

I think many people make these new designs just for the sake of being different, even if it is no better than its predecessor
Well..in reality a linkage system 'could' potentially operate better than a regular fork. Add a decent linkage design in the front and you could have a better feeling fork for various purposes. Think all the good things a horst linkage offers and move it to the front. I imagine it is like comparing a single pivot to a horst. A regular fork being a single ivot (yes I know, there are no pivots just making a relative comparison of technology) sucks for most things. How do they fix this? All these new fangled shocks with high end damping and bump sensitivity work best in the worst of conditions. On a single pivot the high end Avalanche makes a whole new bike. Add a high end shock to a bighit (a bike that is designed for a standard shock) and you will not notice it as much. (its pretty funny but a bike designer can be pretty lazy with how the linkage is designed thanks to these new shocks)
This is the same. When I spend 1000$ on a fork I am paying for the damping (compression and rebound as well as any potential controls) and some r&d into the strength. Imagine have a 4 bar Marzocchi exr...probably feel similar but you would have linkages to make that feeling. You could use a crappy shock with no damping
(50$ rst anyone) and have a decent fork. (that looks like a gigantic pile of crap)
Thats my take on it (with my limited knowledge of linkages and shock technology). I doubt it will ever hit big as I think the stroke and ride height might be badly affected but you never know
Should have read that first haha
