Fox Racing Shox showed off its 2010 product during a media demo day at Zaca Station, a motocross track located on the 8,5000-acre Chamberlain Ranch outside Buellton, California. The ranch also includes a network of cross-country mountain bike trails and a pump track. While photographs and details of the new product are embargoed until Sea Otter, check out some pictures below from the event.

Fox's newest venture is a collaboration with Ford to outfit its limited-edition F-150 Raptor with its patented Internal Bypass System. A professional driver whipped journalists through a 10-minute off-road course to show off the stock truck's features.
Fox typically holds separate media events for its two divisions, bicycle and moto sports, but opted to combine the two this year, giving those used to self-propelled power a chance to rip around the course on ATVs, motocross bikes and side-by-side buggies.
