It's all stuff you could pick up off a shelf at a local bike shop - no protostypes, no special tech (red suit aside, of course). It just goes to show how advanced and capable the kit we ride is.
Stockl said: "My idea of downhill mountain biking is that you should be able buy everything in a shop. That means I didn’t want any special parts on my bike. It should be a bike – not a motorbike without an engine."
Here's a run down of the fastest kit on planet Earth:
