really surprised that our little rebound speed discussion made it into your podcast charlie ;-)
keep on putting out great quality content (vital) and quality comments (vital mtb'ers) - cheers

if you have a progressive LR the shock moves a larger percentage of the shock stroke compare to the associated wheel travel (in%) towards to the end of the stroke. Moving the wheel the same amount of travel the rebound forces have to be higher towards to the end of the stroke because more oil has to be moved through the rebound ports compare to the beginning of the stroke - that's the advantage of a progressive LR compare the progressive spring rate when you look towards rebound (means bit slower deeper in travel, more lively on top)- I assume that's what CC is referring to

thanks - the interesting fact in the article here is the described effect of a support force to the rebound damping - means: can the wheel move freely (roots) vs. the wheel is supported during rebound (g-outs)

Great article! Thanks CC opening up the rebound discussion. Myself (2018 Sentinel stock link + stock dpx2 165lbs) counter the lack of progression with the biggest volume spacer in the shock (due to the reduced shock stroke 57,5mm still not the craziest shock force ramp up). I noticed the described unbalanced rebound between off top vs. deep in travel. Currently I am trying out a little stiffer linear (pyramid) rebound stack (vs. the stock digressive stack) to add HSR and smooth out the transition between LSR and HSR. With having the LSR now a bit more open it feels better to me. I believe that the cascade link will make this even better due to the better LR shape and added progression. I would really like to see data which riding scenario (g-outs vs. chatter) is actually affected by HSR or LSR.
@Jason any comments to your shock settings? (Spacer size, clicks, @lbs)

Another fantastic inside line. Thanks Nic for sharing so many details. These EPS mandrel techniques seems very bikeindustry specific to me and I am wondering if there are separate foaming tools (per frame and size) are required to generate the EPS mandrels – very high on top investment...any opinion about the latex dipped EPS processes compare to Nylon bladders regarding air pushed through (diffusion) resulting into composite porosity
