"low engagement is less likely to cause pedal kickback while the suspension is compressing because there is more room to “float” between engagement points" What about consistency? On either end of the "float" is the minimum kickback and maximum kickback. The larger the float, the greater the difference between that min and max. So with a low-engagement hub, even if kickback might be less likely overall, it's also more likely to be very different each time. I'd much rather have the consistency of high-engagement and avoid kickback via a nice active suspension design that happily also gives max traction under power (when no matter what the hub engagement is, you're always "caught up" to the freehub).
