Hi I'm new to the forum , but I have a quick question. Within downhill mountain biking what are the leather covers cover the inside of the front suspension. It's sort of looks like a patch. I am new to the sport and just trying to find out all I can. Thanks

Do you mean a Neoguard? It's a neoprene mudguard: stops crap getting launched into your eyes at high speeds.
