FSS (Floating Shock Suspension) is the new suspension system used on Shockblaze bikes that compresses the shock absorber from both directions simultaneously. The system eliminates chain stretch and stays active even under braking. FSS system offers clear advantages over and above other suspension systems. On normal systems, impacts with the ground and downward forces on the seat inevitably cause chain stretch. FSS features a new linkage system with No Chain Stretch technology that eliminates chain stretch and improves stability under all riding conditions. The new FSS system enables the suspension to remain active during braking without stiffening. The shock absorber carries on working even when the wheel is braked or rides over obstacles. Finally, the optimised location of the linkage pins eliminates the unwanted movement that can occur under pedal action, thus delivering maximum efficiency.
- Supreme S1
- The new S1 Supreme is designed primarily for competitive racing.
- An intelligent mix of tradition and technology makes the S1 Supreme superbly reliable as well as impressively innovative. The S1 Supreme is made using the latest production technology but maintains the excellent technical, functional and stylistic characteristics of previous models. Lighter weight (850 grams +/- 30 for the frame alone) and improved comfort have been achieved with no loss of reliability, stability, durability or stiffness. To make the S1 Supreme even more exclusive, we have employed innovative technical solutions on various parts of the frame, including new, Slim Vertical Comfort seat stays, a BB30 bottom bracket, internally routed cables (Cable Inside Dynamic System), integrated carbon fibre dropouts and a 1" 1/8 – 1" ½ Drive Control tapered headset
