This is the 2020 V3 version of the Sqweeb.
I am by no means an engineer but read an intervieq with the founder of Raaw Bikes (Google Raaw Madonna to get an idea) and what he said was that most companies use undersized hardware on shockmounts and the like, and given what I have seen in Alpine settings and bikeparks the last few years I think he might be on to something.
I would not want to hammer that frame down a technical trail with about 600 to 1000 m descent.
But....again....I am not an engineer.
You just pointed out a dislike in the Raaw. Just did some reading up , they use bearings at both ends of the shock. This design makes it look like they are using huge hardware. Under those huge washers are bearings. The shock hardware is similar size to the Reeb . I remember back in the day LOL. Most guys on VPS,s carried spare shock bolts. They where known for bending and breaking bolts on the bottom of the shock.
