Fox Live Valve is here, but you'll have to wait for more details

We'd love to tell you more, but we're not allowed

Fox's Live Valve damping technology has to be one of the most eagerly awaited bits of tech due to arrive this year. Electronic sensors combine with batteries and motors to automatically control the bike's damping. 

BikeRadar's Seb Stott has been lucky enough to ride the new system over in the US, but with a strict embargo in place, we can't give you any details yet — you'll have to wait until late August for that.

Scott had a Genius at Eurobike with the system installed

However, Scott had a Genius on its stand with the system all plugged in, so here is a gallery of pictures showing the system out in the wild. You're welcome to make as many assumptions as you like from them!
