Specialized Shocks ?

For the techno-boffs, the Specialized website has some details of it's new for 2007, in house shocks and revised suspension package.

If that doesn't put you to sleep then there's also a PDF that goes into more detail and expands some wonderful marketing mumbo jumbo.

They are either being very brave or very daft entering a market with such an established field of manufacturers, especially as the products are so darn fickle and over analyzed. Also don't forget that 5th Element have recently pulled their bouncer from production and not so long ago it was one of the best.

I for one will wait to see these prove themselves before moving away from Fox or Rock shox even if the Mumbo Jumbo is top quality marketing bleurgh.

A recent thread over on MTBR raises some interesting points esp. regarding yet another new "standard" which I hadn't considered.
