AMP RESEARCH was the pioneers of the compact linkage fork. they were also the employers of Horste Leitner when he created the famed Horste-Link, which the pattent is now owned by Specialized...

they are designed so that when you apply your front brake.... the fork doesnt compress, but im wrong, they arnt anti dive forks. lol.

big tourer motorbikes have anti dive built into them via valves in the front brake callipers to pre load the damping fluid in the forks, hence stopping them compress as much.

surely dive would be more of a problem on performance bikes (MX and GP)?

Girvin forks were anti dive i think.
