EWS Bike Check: Matti Lehikoinen's Nukeproof Mega AM
In regard to Gwins sag. I believe that his extremely stiff suspension will actually preserve the bikes geometry. Because it's so stiff it doesn't matter if he is hanging off the front of the bike or off the back or slamming berms the bike will respond in the same manner in all actions. Some great replies above thanks all and I think everyone is correct here. My opinion is that the ability to pump the trail at high speed is the major factor why the top guys run hard suspension. Another reason would be to stop weight transfer to the front when pinned down steep terrain. And also the other factors mentioned above, higher speeds and forces needing to be absorbed/controlled.

Someone has to explain this how stiff suspension is faster thing. Preferably a pro rider. If my suspension is too hard I ride like a beginner, especially if the conditions are wet. Do all the pros run super stiff suspension? Is it so they can pump the terrain? Or boost obstacles? Or so they can be more dynamic on the bike? Is it for pedaling performance? Is it so they push into the bike to create grip in corners? What about the loss of grip?

EWS Bike Check: Joe Barnes' Canyon Spectral
Looks more like a large frame doesn't it? Also the head angle looks really slack with what looks like a 160mm fork.

The Science of Going Downhill Faster
Take a semi skilled dirtjump guy and give him a trial bike and he will be shreding in no time. Take a talented trail rider and put him on the dirt jumps and he will be struggling for ages.
