    New question here. Front Suspension Rubber Belt?

    I've been watching plenty of MTB DH videos on youtube and I notice on many of the dh bikes there is a piece of rubber that looks like a seat belt right above the fork of the front suspension.

    Can anyone tell me what is really it and its function?

    Thanks in advance.

    You're probably seeing the bumpers that keep the stanchions from hitting the frame at full turn.

    Above the fork or above the wheel?
    Lots of people hang a piece of rubber or belting below the fork crown down to the fork brace to stop mud from flying forward and then into their face.
