MOTION FRANCE: THE ULTIMATE MTB FORK
MOTION France has designed a new generation of front fork suspension for MTB to solve the problems associated with telescopic forks: mainly brake dive, lack of sensitivity, stiffness and reliability.
Motion France Dynamic fork is simple to assemble on all MTB bikes using conical tapered steering frame including electric bikes and tandems.
Motion develops in a first step an Enduro fork for a 160mm travel and a MTB equiped with 27,5″ wheels. It will be available for sale at the beginning of the summer for a delivery at the end of the summer 2017.
All practices (XC, All Mountain, DH) will have their own model by end of 2018.
Motion clarifies some points according its dynamic linkage fork technology
Following video done by Steve from Vorsprung suspension and relayed by Pinkbike, Motion clarifies some points according to their dynamic MTB fork technology.
THE TECHNOLOGY IN FEW WORDS
The MOTION France fork has been specifically designed to remain uncompressed when braking, meaning that 100% of travel is retained for shock absorption under all circumstances. Comfort, traction and safety are all improved for the rider.
Having come up with the concept, MOTION decided to go even further and make its first suspension fork a truly unique object. Patented composite blades, chosen to correspond to the weight of the rider, provide exceptional sensitivity while also dealing with the biggest shocks. An hydraulic cartridge provides a lockout mechanism, allowing the rider to activate or disable the suspension while on the bike. Furthermore, the rider can set the compression and the rebound while riding.
Incredibly precise handling is possible thanks to the biaxial design.
A DEVELOPMENT AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE TO THE USERS
MOTION also shares these values with mountain bikers, by including them in all stages of product development. 50 volunteer riders have tried out the MOTION technology.
The aim is to fully understand the riders’ expectations, which will result in a product that offers maximum enjoyment.
THE MOTION TEAM
The start-up MOTION Engineering, which owns the MOTION France brand, was launched by Matthieu in 2015. Xavier and Thierry decided to take part in the adventure end of 2015.
The three associates share MOTION’s founding values: well-being, respect, reciprocity and going beyond your limits.
Thanks to the enthusiasme generated by the dynamic fork project, Motion is surrounded by new partners. It is partly thanks to them that we are growing so fast.
They can be MTB manufacturers or industrial, financial companies or designers… our partners are following us day by day to help Motion giving access to our technology to everyone.
