Performance evolution passes through quality and the new philosophies
The exceptional traction of the new F929 Skunk comes from the innovation and extreme efficiency of our ACAD#8 damping system
The Skunk model of the F929 fork is a way to meet your pure spirit..... you, your bike, your soul
torsional stiffness, which has always been the problem with every upside down Mtb fork, but not on a Bright-Racing-Shocks
1 Mechanical structure design,
2 Floating bushings guides,
3 Carbon fiber outers,
these three points make the incredible Bright-Racing-Shocks torsional stiffness
Floating bushing guides
All Bright-Racing-Shocks forks are equipped with floating bushing guides.
This design guarantees a very high self-alignment precision of the guide bushings together with a large distance between the two bushings. The precision and torsional rigidity of Bright-Racing-Shocks forks is unique in the panorama of upside-down forks also thanks to this particular architecture.
We develop all alignment systems in-house and use high precision tools of our own design for assembly to ensure highly refined fits.
When you drive a Bright-Racing-Shock around corners or on very bumpy tracks you can clearly feel the difference.
advanced dynamical SAG Optimizaion
maximal traction and active travel
starting from the most ancient concepts, to innovate with new intuitions and knowledge
The BRIGHT-RS systems are characterized by a highly evolved and balanced damping system. They are designed to ensure great sensitivity and not fall into the error of requiring the spring to do all the absorption work (as occurs in less sophisticated systems). This eliminates the static sag which does not give any advantage to the driver who has a certain level of driving performance. All this makes the front end much more manageable and responsive.
Static sag in a commercial fork takes about 20-40mm off active travel. In this way 150 mm of travel becomes approximately 120 mm before use.
Thanks to this special technology, a 130mm BRIGHT-RS is "fuller" in terms of usable travel than a commercial 150mm fork. It turns out to be more balanced in terms of front axle height but with the addition of a much more efficient damping system.
The static lowering that is obtained with a Bright-Racing-Shocks will be very low (up to 10-15 mm) while maintaining a very dynamic control of the lowering of the ground.
The superiority in every situation is evident: a less oscillating front end, more stable and directional, more reactive while driving.
Effects of the Anti Dive system:
- Reduced static Sag Rate
- Best Dynamical Sag
- Deep Front End Control
- Great Stability on the track

BRIGHT RACING SHOCKS
is the most stable fork on the market in terms of dynamic height!
Compared to commercial forks, BRS can boast an unparalleled dynamic control system thanks to the uncompromising technical evolution carried out over years of engineering and test.
BRS system offer the maximum travel in the market in Enduro/e-Enduro use
The special design of the fork crown, in addition, allows the use of greater travel than commercial forks while maintaining an even more stable geometry at the front end.

New evolution in 8th generation ACAD.
It is the heart of all BRIGHT-RS forks.
ACAD is a high efficiency preloaded cartridge that offers the best performance currently available in MTB suspensions in terms of damping speed and reactivity and is especially engineered to manage the anti-cavitation effect, one of the major limitations of normal hydraulic cartridges in MTB forks.
It is to the ACAD system that we owe the great precision of our forks even under maximum load.
Optional BRIGHT-RS system which guarantee the maximal protection for your shafts. This technology allows you to have more protection and at the same time avoid the accumulation of mud against the external seals
The new 203 mm tpc bracket is designed in such a way as to allow all the necessary lateral adaptations but at the same time obtain a very high radial stability.
Your brake won't whistle on long braking
We have designed a removable / replaceable bracket so as to have no limits in updating and in case of repair; but with infinite stiffness

years of race experience make the progression curve under the focus:
the suspension has to be progressive, even more, a fork has to have the right progression curve.
and it has to be responsive and sustained.
When you go fast, when you use everything, you need the excursion to be used rationally.
Our hollow air spring is designed and developed with exactly this goal.
The CHPC design offers a hollow chamber with a ring section, where the central zone is inactive and offers the best solution between diameter and volume. This results in a great reaction elasticity. Every designer has a signature in the way he designs and operates an off-road suspension, this is one of the Bright RS signatures.
