Specialized is about to equip its Epic with the brand new fork imagined by Rockshox, the RS-1 (inverted fork).
To emerge and to keep a high value for customers, Specialized tunes the RS-1 as you can see on the picture. Observators says that a brain cartridge may have been integrated on the system.
Reminder: the Brain system imagined by Specialized is an anti pumping system based on an additionnal oil cartridge linked to the rear shock or here, to the fork. When the ground is sleek, the oil does not circulate and the system is hard. When the Brain meets an obstacle, more oil is released on the circuit and this helps the shock to do its job.
