Foes FFR DH Prototype Has Two-Stage Damper to Boost Negative Travel - Sea Otter 2014
Think of the auto industry. They hold several huge expensive events a year that showcase wild fantastical prototypes that in many cases don't work at all and may never see fruition. Having companies that do dream and showcase wild designs helps stimulate creativity and moves us forward. We'd still be riding hobby horses and driving steam powered cairrages if it weren't for out of the box experimentation.

Prototype Morpheus Slopestyle Bike - Sea Otter 2014
Common on prototypes so they can easily move and play With different geometry. I'm sure they'd refine it on production model

I like that Foes isn't afraid to try new things and also let them be seen. Too many companies hide their wild concepts from view. The theory behind this is very well proven in other sports. Actually VVP suspension sort of does this with the amount of sag they run, compared to others.

Magura's Four Piston Brake - Sea Otter 2014
Plus that much pad surface area means they wear slower. I used to run the old Gustavs on my dh bike. Could go seasons without a pad change. Favorite brakes I ever had

Offer a ti spring ecxhange or offer the different spring rates up front. Keep oil changes doable by user or any shop. I specifically avoid suspension forks that I have to send in for an oil change.

Yup. Swapped to firm spring after first ride. But wasn't gonna pay no $300 for another ti spring. Steel it is. Still amazing fork though
