Yes, it will work. The suspension design on the bike is a dual rotating link that will function similar to Giant Meastro, DW Link and KS Link bikes. The only big difference is that a quick glance at the frame makes it look like the shock is just floating in space on one end. However, if you click on the geometry chart you will see a basic drawing of the frame that reveals the forward shock eyelet is connected to the seatstay by a long link. They could have had the link more visable by mounting it to the top tube, down tube or both and still had the same kinematics, but they chose a more visually unique approach.
