Didn't see any air bottom out element.

Good question. For those looking for info on the new Sentinel, click here.

Often when I jump on a bike a size larger than I typically ride I experience an odd sort of seesaw sensation through the roughest bits of trail. That isn't the case with both The Smash and Sentinel. Both companies have figured out a way to make a larger bike work for a given rider height. There are some real benefits to the approach.

Correct

Running tokens allows you to lower pressure while maintaining bottom out resistance. It should make the fork more plush through 50-60% of the travel until the crossover point during the ramp up.

Removing volume reducers means you have to run more...more

I hope the Super Deluxe Coils show up in the near future for aftermarket and SRAM realizes that while the existing non-metric shock lengths may not make sense, that it's going to be a while before they are gone.

Potentially, though there's more to the equation than just the fork. Not every bike is helped by it. This was not equipped with a shorter offset than normal.

The lower leverage curve bodes well for, ahem, larger riders like myself and being able to find a coil spring rate that works well.

Fred tested a size Large with a reach of 455mm. He's also 6'1".

One of Orbea's point men also had this to say regarding sizing:

"I'm 6' with rangy arms and legs and have been going back and forth between the L with a 50mm stem and XL with a 35mm stem.

The new XL with the longer wheelbase and big wheels feels a bit like I grabbed onto a missile and am simply along for the ride. It's awesome when the trails are scary, but I struggle a bit to find the balance point for flat turns and moderate terrain. I jokingly call it the Power of Attorney Bike - I trust it to make decisions in my best interest, but I don't necessarily have to be there.

The LG probably 'fits me better' and is quite fun to ride everywhere else. It requires a bit more input in rough terrain but it's easier for me to change direction and hence, more fun. I don't have to pull up 5 minutes early to bunnyhop something."
