    The All-New Brain

    Smarter. Faster. Stronger. The culmination of nearly two decades of obsessive R&D and over 100 World Cup podiums, the new Brain is the most durable and efficient we’ve ever made. Seamlessly switching from firm on smooth terrain to plush and active in the rough stuff, Brain thinks so you don’t have to.

    Roots of the Brain

    In 2002 we introduced a shock with a mind of its own, and revolutionized bicycle suspension. Integral to the winningest full suspension XC bikes ever, Brain technology has come a long way over the past two decades, but the all-new Brain is still in a class by itself when it comes to instantly and automatically adjusting suspension from firm to active to maximize efficiency and control.

    It Knows

    Brain Technology in Epic forks and shocks knows the difference between pedaling force and bump force. It keeps suspension firm on smooth terrain and switches suspension to fully active the instant things get rough. The new Epic boasts our smartest Brain yet, completely redesigned to deliver a firmer firm setting, better bump management in all conditions and unprecedented durability and toughness.
