I probably didn't hammer the weight of this frame/shock enough in the article, but we are in a strange place in the industry these days. Carbon fiber has become SO crucial to most brands. Yet here we have an aluminum frame and shock that offers comparable kinematic performance to the multi-link carbon fiber wonderbikes, and manages to come in at the same or lower weight. A few years ago, the skeptics who were all afraid of carbon fiber bikes would have been rallying around this. Now, they'll probably be the same people who wonder if an alloy bike this light will be strong enough to thrash hard.
