This doesn't change the point I'v tried to make, where they said in the video that its a PROGRESSIVE rate, while in the graph its a RISING/REGRESSIVE rate, and if its like you(Dynamatt) said, then in reality its actually a LINEAR rate.
linear is OK in some circumstances, but progressive is much better at resisting bottoming out.
most bikes on the market, especially AM/Enduro bikes have a progressive rate.
the overall Leverage ratio is really high, too, which is not good for anything.

Make up your mind, GT, we are confused!

Looks Amazing! though the leverage ratio is actually progressive at the start, and regressive at the end.
this is not good.
like the new design, low COG is good but not that necessary for a AM bike.
i ride the 2012 sanction and the iDrive is a great pedaler, tho feels a bit too easy to bottom out, cause the leverage ratio is regressive.
you absolutely dont feel the BB move, though in this new force its moving a bit more.
