A tire designed for wider rims, interesting...
I would be especially interested of the thread width would have been wider too, like 2.4 or 2.5 for example.

Since the stiffening of the suspension mainly seems to rely on chain tension, I wonder how easily it will "open up" while pedalling?
And I'm under the impression the system will generate quite a bit of pedal kickback during this "opening up"?
I'm guessing it all depends on how the chain tension / pedalling force stacks up against the impact force of a bump.

Seems like an interesting bike / suspension system.
And not relying on the LSC of the shock to sort out pedalling performance has its advantages. I'd love to try one.

"... a physical and a mental escape"; only the good trails let you enjoy riding and escape all other things at the same time! Judging by your pictures this definately seems to be the case.

Added reply in a thread Who has experience with 1x10 speed for enduro/light dh? 9/6/2011 8:15 AM

I have tried different size chainrings with a 1x10 setup and concluded that it was too much of a compromise for my physical ability... (with a 11-36 cassette) I tried a 34t chainring, which gave me a sufficiently small ratio to do climbs (Belgian Ardennes), ... more »
