WE’RE DOING THINGS DIFFERENTLY
Performance and simplicity
A Motion fork looks different because its technology is a far cry from most forks currently on the market. Our technology has been developed internally, with 3 international patents filed in order to provide you with a fork that offers better control for less maintenance.
At Motion, we’ve looked at suspension from a different point of view. We don’t see the interest in bringing out a product that’s similar, but slightly better, to the products already on the market. We started again from a clean slate looking to solve some of the problems with telescopic forks.
A Motion fork is unaffected by braking, which on standard forks reduces the available travel and destabilises the front of the bike. Our anti-dive technology means the fork travel is available at 100% everytime. It gives an incredible feeling of safety and better handling for a more enjoyable and efficient ride.
We are proud of our radically different approach. By choosing Motion you’re showing you can go against the grain and embrace an exciting new technology.
THE ANTI-DIVE FRAME - 1st Patent
A Motion fork never suffers from diving when braking, so always has 100% of its travel ready to absorb impacts.
A standard fork dives under braking, losing up to 80% of its travel, and therefore shock absorbing capabilities. The Motion fork has been specially conceived to solve this problem and does not compress when braking.
A Motion fork uses energy from braking to automatically and instantly compensate the forces generated by the transfer of mass, that tries to compress the fork.
A Motion fork is not affected by the rider’s weight or the different levels of power exerted when braking. Our fork is mounted with composite fibreglass bearings that do not lose any force or stiffness over time and are perfectly smooth. No more time wasted servicing worn out bearings!
- Reduced risk of accidents
- More stable
- Better shock absorption: 7 times greater when braking
- Quicker through switchbacks and descending as we can brake when we want to
- Improved grip
- Improved handling
- Less arm pump as the suspension works to 100% efficiency
You’ll gain better control and handling as you can brake at any moment without compromising your suspension. With improved suspension performance you can push your limits or simply feel safer.
THE WAVE© 2nd Patent
The Wave is the spring: a pulled curved composite blade offering a perfect progressive suspension curve. No risk of damper or spring heat or leak. In addition, the absence of friction results in more comfort and grip.
The Wave© guarantees a consistent performance in all circumstances.
The blade can be tuned for the rider’s weight and riding style by simply adjusting the pre-tensioning using a 6mm allen key: we set notably the SAG. Simple and efficient !
THE FLOW© - 3rd PATENT
The Flow is an oil based shock absorber, developed internally at Motion using a thru shaft technology, and integrated cooling system and is specially conceived to have no friction.
A unique technology that brings many benefits
- No floating piston: less parts and seals
- No friction: more comfort and grip
- Behaviour stays the same throughout a long descent
- Manual adjustments for low speed rebound
- No leakage due to atmospheric pressure chambers at both ends
- You want to change your damper to have the latest? you just have to dismantle 2 screws and mount the new one!
