Sea Otter - Fox 2012 Seals

Fox shows us the difference between their 2011 and 2012 seals and Kashima coating.

 That gave very little notice in detail from our perspective! Hands on might feel the difference!

 i was there at sea otter and personally got to feel it out. its very much more noticeable, but lets be honest here. they had this fabrication/engineering already they just waited for the next year to put it out to make more money off us. i mean seriously

 hahahhahahah yes thats sounds about right! new seals do a lot but the video is hard to tell. I actually have the 2011 Kashima 180mm 36 and its very slick but not to what they claim, that I can actually feel. My 66 was just as smooth! But, I wasn't there in person and if it is smoother than thats great! RidEOn dude!

 last year new coating, this year new seals. no figures given, just useless videos - what kind of evidence is that?
Marketing bull*hit will always take place to hit those new into the sport, older riders know what's good from experience and can play with the stuff to get the most of it.
And at the end of the day 25% of us will buy fox anyway simply because if you ride you need a new forks from time to time.

 well its a step forward, but you could have always bought Enduro seals, they were amazing in my Boxxer, id imagine they would have similar benefits with the 40, but its still only a bandaid, fox's friction issues run much deeper than just the seals.

 for me it is a question of how much crap the seals let in. How often do I have to pull it apart and put new oil in. With my rockshox it is about once a year.

 The stantion on the left doesnt have a spring though. You could see him having to pull it back up into place. Dont you think that would change the feel of it?
  • + 1
 if he was compressing the left side then yes, but he was just spinning both sides, so it shouldn't have made a difference.

 Well not having a spring has less resistance under it keeping it in place, so it would be easier.

 i see what your saying, but the difference in resistance would be very minimal.
