Fast Suspension's 3-Way Yari Damper Upgrade - Eurobike 2017
Are you sure about the shaft speeds? At 150 m/s (upper threshold of "low speed"), one would blow through the travel of the fork (180 mm) within roughly one millisecond... In millimeters per second the numbers look slightly more reasonable.

I was looking forward to watching this tonight - but Redbull spoiled it by putting the winning run on Youtube, featured on the main page for me. bummer.

Opinion: A Cry for Help
@Tetravolta: That guy's been around for a while now. Total snakeoil, they have a few "prototypes", but nothing that actually works. If you look at their marketing material you'll realize they don't have a clue what they are talking about.

Opinion: A Cry for Help
Maybe we are at fault, for bitching about every gram, while asking for cheapness and perfect reliability. We've repelaced the steel bead wire with fabric, we remove layers of the casing, we make rims super anemic, and then we wonder why tires puncture. Just use dual plys with decent pressure and you wouldn't have any issues... Our current selection of tires is just too light for the job at hand - and we ignore the proper choice out there. A comparable motocross tire is much, much heavier, and that does translate into more reliability. If you think about it, the forces on a motorcycle arent that much higher than what we subject our bicycles to....

Pinkbike Poll - Are World Cup Racers Right To Complain About Tracks?
Yeah they are right to have their word in track design - just don't do it in front of the cameras in such a whiney tone. This just gives the sport a bad rep - complaining publicly should be a last resort if some rule or race track is overly unsafe. Not because a rider thinks he deserves a more challenging track - it gives a sensation that the sport is completely unorganized, and it also shines a VERY bad light on the racers themselves.

Pinkbike Poll - Are World Cup Racers Right To Complain About Tracks?
I might add, after watching Leogang in Person, it was far from an easy track top to bottom. There are plenty of sections that were absolutely WC terrain by the time the actual race started - I think a lot of riders based their complaints about the way the track looked at the beginning of the weekend. But the track was clearly designed with knowing that it would change a lot during practice and qualifying, and come race time, the grassy off-cambers had turned into 8 inches deep ruts in loose dirt, with lots of braking bumps. And sections like the clearcut were downright gnarly, and lots of riders struggled seriously there - in a good way. TBH I thnk it is quite unfair to reduce the track to the one connecting section inbetween - I agree this isn't the best part of a Downhill, but so are the Motorway and the first 500m in fort William, or the finish sprint in Cairns. Why don't they complain abut those tracks being "too easy"?
