WTF are you talking about worrying about "tracking up lips and landings" because of tires which are too aggressive? 1) that's not really a thing, 2) grip while jumping equals safety.

This is likely utilizing a dynamic idler position. As the suspension compresses the pedal kickback caused by chain growth is counteracted by the idler pulley being 'lifted' off the top-side of the chain. It's probably an easy way to counteract pedal kickback for a low pivot bike... however it's likely not particularly efficient because when the chain is tensioned it will put additional upwards force on that idler which may compress the suspension (a small amount). In future I would bet any money that we'll see a lot more idler pulleys mounted indynamic positions in order to control chain growth and pedal kickback.
