I think HPP bikes would be a dog to pump because the rear wheel doesn't want to stay in the same place as you pump. Hardtails pump better than full-suspension bikes, and I feel like a HPP bike would pump even worse. I don't think most beginner and intermediate riders would notice this because I think most beginners and intermediates are just hanging on to survive aggressive trails, but when you want to go real fast you have to pump everything. This would obviously be less of a factor on steeper and rougher trails, though.

when you pedal with Ochain the springs is completely compressed during the whole 360 ​​°. The elastomer works to give a fluid engagement but the elastomer travel is ridiculous.

Good question! Thin is why we can remove or REDUCED the pedal kickback. In some conditions is good to have some reactions from suspension in order to have a more reactive bike (for example when you pump the bike)

Interesting how many people are focusing on the DW part of the equation. Not taking anything away from the man, they myth, the legend, but I see the (much) bigger deal here being the ability for the Athertons to quickly prototype different geometries, getting a bike to fit them better than anything they've had in the past.

While my previous post focused on the questionable business sense of all this, as a racer, I can't think of anything better than being able to 3D print stuff that vastly alters the geometry allowing the rider to quickly go through a few iterations without new jigs/molds etc.

I'd take a single pivot that fits me perfectly over the most advanced bla bla bla suspension design that is run-of-the-mill fit.

Cool product for the right application.

KS Lev Ci 30.9 125mm dropper is 385 g however just for accuracy sake. I have been running the 175mm version of the KS Lev Ci for about a year and besides the crappy OEM lever (replaced with a Wolf Tooth, which admittedly adds a few grams) it's been flawless.

It is available on the site last time I checked, you can ask frm any questions I do not work for them. Since you work for bike yoke, can you tell me where / who does your testing? I have seen the fmr at cape epic, marathon and xc wc, etc... It is much lighter and 60mm is what pro xc and marathon use.

Different disciplines for sure. However, Loris just won the Trans Cascadia in pro with Luca Shaw in third. They both beat last year's winner, Geoff Kabush who got 5th. He is no endurance slouch. DH isn't enduro, but the top level pros are in great condition.
