Now that the dust has settled from the Sea Otter Classic, we're taking time to dive a little deeper into the technology that's surely going to be influencing your bike next year, and for years to come. Specialized has developed this exclusive technology we've been asking for since air-sprung suspension was invented. It takes the guesswork out of setting rear shock air pressure by incorporating an all-new "pisser" valve. Check out what Specialized had to say about their latest and greatest here:
At first glance, it looks like a production RP23 with Fox’s fancy
Kashima coating. Look closely, though, and you’ll notice an additional ring and
valve wrap around the air sleeve. This little extra is dubbed “Autosag.” As the
name implies, this technology automatically adjusts the shock’s sag to meet
Specialized’s recommended setting.
It's currently available on the 2012 Stumpjumper Evo Carbon, and will certainly be making its way throuout the lineup in the future.
