Technology Details

After six years of caffeine-fueled designing, prototyping, redesigning and elite BlackBox-testing – the new Vivid and Vivid Air rear shocks have been tested and proven their perfection with victories on both the World Cup stage and FMB World tour.

BREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGIES
The new Vivid conquers several once-thought-impossible engineering feats. Technologies like Counter Measure, which reduces the breakaway force of the shock to virtually zero pounds, transforming small bumps in to traction-generating performance. Dual Flow Adjust Rebound splits the rebound circuit in two – one circuit for small bumps and pedaling forces and one circuit for big bumps, like smashing rocks or sending big jumps; it’s the confidence builder that allows the rider to fine tune the ride quality to exactly their riding style.

Counter Measure

We even added a new approach to friction reduction and smoothness inside the shock itself – improving responsiveness and ultimately reducing the shock’s noise to an almost imperceptible level. Rapid Recovery is why the new Vivid rides high in its travel, where a shock’s stroke is plushest and the bike maintains its composure – all the while, maintaining the ability to instantly react to massive hits and still keep the rider’s wheels tracking the ground.
