I am not the only one to thi k about this.
I had a quick look at the leverage curve charts. The Range is actually quite progressive and should work well with a coil. The Patrol is less so, around the same ball park as the Stump evo.
Although leverage curve is very important, the shock's compression tunes now also add another variable.
So at the end you need to look at the overall sum of the parts and how they all play together.
I trust Transition have gone coil because of a defined performance benefit, they as a company are pretty good with not following the trends generally speaking. I mean at the end of the day they gave us modern slack geo with decreased offset forks which they pretty much cobbled together in their garage to R&D
