Video: The Latest Tech From the Fort William DH World Cup - Here We Go Again

by Henry Quinney  

After the season opener in Lourdes, the World Cup calendar took a break of several weeks. In that time, brands have been hard at work to bring new bikes and developments for the next leg of racing.

In Fort William, we've seen further refinement to some of the bikes that debuted in France, such as the Intense prototype receiving an updated link, as well as entirely new bikes such as fresh downhill bikes from GT and Giant. If videos aren't your thing, and the waffle is all a bit too much, hold tight - the tech photos will be online soon.

 Not typically a fan of video format for these, but this is some excellent coverage with actual interesting and informative commentary.

 RockShox being quiet on the details of the Boxxer, but a little birdy told me they're not 40mm stanchions like the competition. They couldn't fit the bushings they needed with "stankshuns" that large, so they finally decided on 38.99mm.

 I kind of hope they go with some stupid value like 38.99 to just troll the ever living hell out of everyone

 Strange that you couldn't get to see the Intense link when there's a clear photo of it in the Tech Randoms post.
