Long travel Fox 36 + Luftkappe is pretty cavemanny. Plush but hard as hell to bottom. I wish there was a way to add some positive chamber volume though. Im runnin 86 psi in mine, can handle 90 but there is no way i could bottom it.

Pressure won't hold you up in big hits like HSC will. Even a really stiff spring will blow right through its travel without any HSC. I have tested this a little, definitely a sweet spot where both things are used lol.

I have convinced myself that it is mostly marketing. Maxxis doesn't sell nearly EVERY possible combinations of its ridiculous buzzwords.

I think their tires are in a constant state of flux and the sidewall just says what it does. From a guy who buys 2 DD minions every month.
