Athertons and Red Bull team up to create another overproduced visual sleeping pill:

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.
