White Brothers introduce new damping tech at Interbike

The patent-pending Intelligent Magnetic Valve combines "the benefits of true open bath damping with the foolproof intelligence of a magnetic valve." The I.M.V. system is said to prevent bobbing on hills and during sprints, but allows the fork to be fully active when hitting bumps.

White Brothers Cycling is a division of Eko Sport, Inc., a manufacturer based in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Eko president Tim Fry said:

"Unlike typical sprung valves, the I.M.V. system senses the oil pressure spike that occurs when your fork hits a bump. It holds the compression circuit open throughout the entire bump, then closes simultaneously with the rebound flow of oil at the end of the bump. The fork is fully active during terrain-induced shock forces, but knows to stay closed when you’re climbing or sprinting."

He claims the I.M.V. damper is "the new leading edge in suspension technology.”

The I.M.V. system will be featured in White Brothers’ new Magic and Magic-29 fork lines with a suggested retail of $675.00.

There are no I.M.V details yet on the White Bros website.
