This pivot location also maximises active suspension when using the rear brake similar to a floating brake design without the added weight Rearward Axle path – Because of the main pivot location, the Escarpe has 55mm of travel with a reward axle path which all helps the rider to carry momentum over rough terrain and especially square edged hits Leverage rate design – The leverage rate is designed to have a falling rate to sag point then go mildly progressive; this helps the bike sit comfortably in the sag position with a stable platform. The lower shock mount moves forward with the suspension helping to keep a linier rate without falling off at full travel. This movement also reduces the shock angle change at full travel reducing side loads and improving the reliability of the shock Easy AssemblyWhen you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping.
