We know a lot of people are looking for alloy options, and it's something you will see more of from us eventually. We can't share any specific timing or details yet, but we hear you, and we aren't ignoring the category. We're a small company and when ... more »

All metric shocks in 205mm are the same base shock with internal spacers to modify between 57.5, 60, 62.5 and 65mm stroke. It is possible to convert any one stroke to the other, but it requires a full rebuild of the damper. As an OEM all the travel configurations ... more »

The original Sentinel had anti rise numbers that varied from 30-40% through the travel and the new Sentinel is a hair over 50% the whole way through the travel. I would not focus on any one number too obsessively, since everything works together and ... more »

Everything is a battle of millimeters and our carbon frames are already up to a 37mm OD in order to have the material needed on the frame side. If you increase the seatpost size you have to make that up somewhere else. And we are not having any trouble ... more »

DM for pics. Lets just say I cut it myself and I can't see the back of my head. So... The EPS and latex process basically takes the (now virtually standard) EPS process a bit further by allowing for a tighter radius in the mold. That helps us do what ... more »

No reason at all really. We have not had much Shimano on the builds in the past few years, but we had Shimano spec bikes in the past and might again one day. What do you want? I will assume XTR only, right? --Sam

We focus on keeping things simple, effective and durable whenever possible and we think the geo is dialed as is. There is a lot going on with that back wheel and we like to keep the connection nice and solid. --Sam

Many small things, but they all add up. Biggest highlights... improved suspension performance with increased progression, ncreased seatpost insertion, added tire clearance. The first Sentinel was a great bike and ahead of it's time, the new one just ... more »

The combo of a Wolf Tooth B-RAD (medium) strap for a spare tube on the TT with a water bottle cage and OneUp pump plus EDC tool on the DT mounts will get you pack free rides with dedicated spots for everything. --Sam

We come from a pretty wet environment and find that water will always find a way in, even through your headset. Our frames have a drain hole in the BB, which will let water out... but of course it also lets it in. It's a battle you can never win. --Sam ... more »

Since you are going to get a Sentinel instead I guess we can just kill that idea

That is something we do talk about a lot, but it is never the top priority. I bet you will see it again one day, but not sure when that will be. --Sam

It all came from testing and what we liked better. Some modest increase in CS length improved front end traction and didn't take away from any playfulness. Across the board we already have quite slack head angles compared to a lot of other brands, but ... more »

Dang.

Wish we'd gotten bike geometry right the first time in 1990 but it takes some tweaking ya know?

That has been updated on the newest shocks. It now has a cone bumper like the DHX2. I have not personally checked that, but so I am told...

No worries - I have seen some different ways of calculating progression out there. If I recall correctly the video review also called the progression 23% (or maybe I am remember that incorrectly). Either way, I just wanted to make sure the comparison was actually apples to apples. Lots of room for personal preference on what makes up "perfect" for anything with bikes these days. Thankfully there are a ton of great options out there!
