The suspension platform is based on the?╟╗same horseshoe driven linkage?╟╗as our award-winning Dissent downhill frame, albeit now with a 2-stage main pivot flip chip. Using an eccentric axle system, riders can?╟╗alter the Kinematic progressivity;?╟╗so,?╟╗the bike can be tailored to suit the conditions?╟╗on the trail with only an 8mm?╟╗Allen?╟╗key.
- Setting 1 =&25.5% progression
- Setting 2 =&29% progression
Both settings have a super supple beginning for small bump compliance. They also both have good mid-stroke support for better cornering and pumping. Like the Dissent, the progression drops off in the end stroke to prevent mid-stroke harshness or spiking and allows more tuning options with volume spacers.?╟╗
The + Progressive setting can be used to add shock progression on a coil set up just like adding a volume spacer to an air shock. The added suppleness is also good in wet and slippery conditions.?╟╗
