All our bikes have a anti-squat value of around 115% at sag across all gears thanks to our chainline not being affected by gear shifts.
Anti-squat values come down throughout the bikes’ travel: from more than 120% down to less than 90%. This way our team crafted a very efficient yet lively suspension platform.
Our gearbox driven bikes benefits from very little pedal kickback. Especially at high speed, in heavier gears kickback is negligible.
This is a major benefit because it means the suspension remains fully active and sensitive during quick descends, even when pedaling.
Anti-rise levels are optimal at 90 to 100% throughout the bikes’ suspension travel.
This means that brake forces accurately compensate for any mass transfer during deceleration. Not only at sag-point but at any point throughout the bikes’ travel.
Our suspension platform is designed to offer a near vertical initial axle-path. A vertical or rearward axle path improves the suspension’s smoothness.
When the vectors from trail obstacles and the wheel path are more in line this results in the suspension being compressed rather than the bike being ‘held back’.
Stand straight with your back against a wall and place a book on your head. Make sure the book is parallel with the floor and at right angles to the wall, touching the wall. Make a mark on the wall with tape and measure the distance between the bottom of the book and the floor.
Stand straight up with your back against a wall. Take a book and tuck it between your legs. Pull up the book, simulating the pressure of sitting on a bike saddle. Make a mark on the wall with tape and measure the distance between the top of the book and the ground.
Fast, precise and very close to what you are used to. Allows intuitive single upshift and double downshifts.
