I get that, but I'd want to see and understand how the new tech works before shelling out the money for them. Internal bypass, needles, secondary valving piston like a PDS KTM shock, fancy check balls on the pistons, something new we've never seen before? There just hasn't been any info released other than "they're way better" (not saying they aren't). Hopefully after hay days Raptor will let some more details out. To be fair Fox hasn't released much info on their new handlebar-adjustable shocks either. Other than SnoWest says they're cool and cost $4k for a full setup.
