as far as i know, this was the longest travel flex pivot design (9" travel). given carbon use in dh applications was in it's infancy at the time, there was some skepticism as to durability, but these proved to be bomber. the chainstay is flexed down at 0 travel (effectively a negative spring), which in conjunction with a high starting leverage rate, makes (for better or worse) silly plush first few inches of travel.  ![](![]( the spot i reviewed (with carbon link flex plate) had a similar negative load, which (seemed) to reduce the air shock breakaway / increase sensitivity a bit.
