Someone should think about how to make rigid disc forks more compliant. And no, the solution is not called "Zertz".

I think all the gimmicks will disappear, and clever component design and good tires will stay.

They probably claim a % rate of flex in some sales propaganda.
But if you ride hard, how are you sure the fork doesn't brake.
That is, if it basically is a stiff fork!
THM did an interesting prototype with lamella construction.
Canyon had a concept road (race) bike with suspension both front and rear.

I still think it's strange we see bikes like Pinarello S-models, the new Wilier NDR and others with a rear suspension of some sort.
But virtually no gravel bikes.
Excerpt is True Grit bike with the Grit fork

You don't understand, it's not a mudguard, it's a tire wipers.

A larger tire run at a lower pressure does magnitudes more for comfort (without screwing up handling) than any frame/fork/stem/seatpost/handlebar gimmick, and they are relatively cheap.
