Fox’s Electronically-Activated Suspension

The skinny on Fox's Float ICD system

By Vernon Felton

In case you missed the news, Fox and Shimano collaborated on the development of an electronically-activated version of Fox’s 2013 CTD forks and rear shock: it’s called ICD and in a nutshell, you can switch between the climbing and descending modes on both the fork and the shock (simultaneously) with the flick of a switch.

We interviewed Fox and got the skinny on the new system. Check out the video for the details.

What do you think of electronically-activated suspension? RockShox and Lapierre are also working on electronically-controlled suspension systems.

Are electronically-activated forks and shocks a good idea? Are they something you’d want on your own bike?
