PRESS RELEASE

One year without Rampage is one year too many! We are so excited to see Andreu doing what he does best; making vibrations direct from the Utah desert. 

To complete the show we've prepared a special FRS… Andreu’s FRS!

Apparently the Catalonian air rusts aluminum :) Loic already made good use of his at the last World Cup in the USA, let's hope for the same outcome!

This is likely utilizing a dynamic idler position. As the suspension compresses the pedal kickback caused by chain growth is counteracted by the idler pulley being 'lifted' off the top-side of the chain. It's probably an easy way to counteract pedal kickback for a low pivot bike... however it's likely not particularly efficient because when the chain is tensioned it will put additional upwards force on that idler which may compress the suspension (a small amount). In future I would bet any money that we'll see a lot more idler pulleys mounted indynamic positions in order to control chain growth and pedal kickback.
