Fournales, from France (near Toulouse) is one of the first who make shocks with air spring for motorcycle. A long time before the Rock-Shox1.
He worked a lot for race motorcycle ("Fior" in the end of 80ies).
In 90, he worked on a rear shock for the Cannondale EST, but really expensive. He worked on a front suspension fork in 91, with a steel welded crown.
He built the cobra fork in the end of 90ies, with a parallelogram geometrie, but with aluminum legs. In association with look, he created the fork with carbon fiber legs.
Very lightweight, and really more stiff than a telescopic-classic fork, but more for a cross-country use
Well… it's really not acceptable…
