About a year ago or so, we spotted an unmarked prototype being ridden at Crankworx. The bike featured a 4-bar suspension design with a Horst link, with the shock fixed at the lower shock mount (non-floater). Two rear wheel positions to allow the use of both 26-inch and 27.5-inch (650B) wheels. When we saw it, the bike was in 650B mode and outfitted with the DVO Emerald fork. At the time, the rumors pointed to it being the future replacement for Rocky Mountain's Flatline.

Fast forward to Crankworx 2014, and we've been seeing what a appears to be a closer-to-production-ready version of the bike under Rocky team riders Thomas Vanderham and Geoff Gulevich.

From what we can make out, the bike closely resembles last year's proto, notably with regards to the Horst link and the pivot placement. More as we get it!
