Why did you create Motion ?
Very easy answer: to do what I love! Invent and create while reconciling my passion for MTB. But beyond the engineering, the aim is also to build a company with strong values, in conflict with the usual pyramidal hierarchy model. I think it is possible to give more flexibility to every one: this is consistent with performance and happyness !
How does the fork idea came to you ?
The mechanic and the physic phenomena always interested me. And on a MTB, there are lots of to do! Thus, I questionned myself on the bikes components functioning and asked if there are better solutions. The suspension systems have caused much ink to flow because every one knows that a telescopic fork is not perfect! After studying all the existing systems, I put in physic equation of the theorical behaviour of suspended fork, the Motion technology was born. Mathematically, the Motion technology is the unique mechanical solution which answers to all needs for a perfect fork.
What do you want to bring to MTB world ?
Usually, we associate innovation to marketing. But there is a huge diffence! The MTB technology still has lots of possibilities for evolution in term of performance and pleasure. The single middle chainring or the telescopic seatpost are good examples. I promise that the incoming years will bring disruptive innovations in the suspensions, front and rear, but not only... And note that it will alway be to the service of riding pleasure !
How do you see Motion in a few years ?
MOTION must build its innovative and responsable brand image. Not as a traditionnal brand competitor, but as an innovation catalyst in our sport development and mind. One only goal, pleasure during riding and sharing it !
What does the fork brings to you in your practice ?
Pleasure and serenity !
Pleasure thanks to the comfort and performances brought. Brake harder, turn faster, with a comfort and smoothness sensation ;)
The serenity by the anti-dive safety and the unmatched handling thanks to our technology, and of course also, serenity by the peace of mind brought by the unfailing reliability and without maintenance !
