Two players – RockShox and Fox – undoubtedly dominate the suspension market. Walk into a bike store, look at the mountain bikes and you’re unlikely to see anything else.

The Swiss-company’s fork offerings came about with the acquisition of Pace’s fork business in 2006.
Since then, the fast descending Nino Shurter has raced DT’s products to numerous rainbow stripes and yet the product is still rarely spoken of. Wondering why, we slapped a 100mm-travel 29in OPM onto the front of our SwiftCarbon cross-country test rig.
