Meh, max grip is so tacky the tires don’t last worth a damn. The difference between them and terra is negligible really. There’s a reason they don’t make many options in them.

I don't recall any other shock having a hydraulic bottom out control, so no you can't get any shock to behave the same way that this shock does. Can you improve an existing shock by getting it tuned properly for your bike? Yes (but also the vast majority of stock shocks are actually...more

I never claimed they were the ONLY brand to break the rules. But when you look at all the different aspects of their business and the choices they made, it adds up to a brand that does things their own way, that's all. Once again, there are other brands who do as well.

I'm impressed by your enthusiasm.

Re-read my comment with the graph. I don't disagree with you about how a volume change at the same starting pressure will alter the spring rate.
