X-Fusion patiently waits five years to finally copy FIT damper:

When asked about similarities between the popular Fox FIT damper layout and X–Fusion’s new “Roughcut Damper,” insiders at X-Fusion stated “it’s not exactly the same,” citing different product name and different colored knobs.

When asked the follow-up question “really?” X-Fusion engineers conceded that yeah, it’s pretty much the same thing.

  1. the fit damper was 2 stage in 2009/2010 I remember having to rebuild mine every week!! the things were complete shite. It more a copy of the charger damper than anything else.

  2. The big news was the new worthless hub standards from SRAM, aka SCAM.

    This crap Is becoming more and more difficult for shops to deal with. Boycott SRAM!
