Veteran Suspension Engineer Joins X-Fusion
X-Fusion is proud to announce the newest member of its Team, Anthony Trujillo. He will take on the role as Engineering & Product Manager.
Anthony joins the X-Fusion Team with over 11 years of suspension component engineering experience. Having spent over 9 years at FOX Racing Shox, he brought to market such products as the FLOAT RL, Remote Lock Out, AVA, Specialized Itch, TALAS, 1st generation Propedal, DHX, DHX Air, and Van R rear shocks, as well as various custom products, designs, and general improvements to all products. He also represented FOX on the World Cup and US National Circuits from ’00-’06, tuning for pros and developing product. Later, he joined the Specialized Suspension Team where he helped build the Suspension Program and designed the innovative Epic micro-Brain shock, as well as made design and quality improvements to existing Specialized brand Stumpjumper and Enduro rear shocks.
“I could not be more excited about this new opportunity at X-Fusion. For where I am at in my career and where X-Fusion is at as a mtb suspension design and manufacturing company, I could not think of a better time to join the Team. I have been working with the X-Fusion factory since around ’01 and have seen them grow to a company that should have global OEMs, dealers, and end users reconsider who the big hitters are in the suspension world. If they haven’t already, they soon will!”
In his new role, Anthony will not only be overseeing all designs and engineering of the products, but will also be greatly involved in all aspects of the company in his Product Manager role. “I’ve been riding two wheels with knobbies on dirt since ’76 and actually started racing BMX in ’77, thanks to my older brothers! I live and breathe bikes on dirt and mtb suspension and can’t wait to bring all my experience to the X-Fusion Team.”
With Anthony aboard the team the sky is the limit and X-Fusion will continue to innovate and design top of the line suspension available to the general consumer and OEM’s. He will also be working closely with the X-Fusion sponsored athletes for track side R&D and to ensure they have the best advantage for every type of riding. The future is bright here at X-Fusion and we are excited to have Anthony as a member of our team.
