Fail Of The Month - July
*EVOC will retire to their viewing room to pick their favourite fail for the month, the winner will be announced in the next article and take home some sweet EVOC product. I don't think there's much question which video should take it..

Yeti's new switch infinity bike might be a little crazy looking with the dual fox sliders, but it seems to work.

SB5 CARBON x SWITCH INFINITY
nmpearson, The wheel path is based on the type of pivot or linkage used. different linkages cause different shock curves, so companies work to get a tune that better works with their linkage rates (how fast or slow the shock shaft moves at different points in the travel). This design is a way to get a wheel path that provides some anti-squat pedaling efficiency, while not using VPP or DW links. to me, it seems like a somewhat complicated work around.

SB5 CARBON x SWITCH INFINITY
Essentially, they're using the two sliders to replace the rail type system they used to allow linear travel.. The upper link controls the amount of linear motion, upward/downward and also the shock curve. Apparently, the rails they used developed play. This would appear to be intended to make it more reliable and easily serviced, with less play.. but as some pointed out, those seals need frequent attention to keep them in good shape.. The travel is short, so they wont get abused as much as say a fork seal, but still, I like my frame pivots to be a little more maintenance free. (thank you Santa Cruz for the labyrinth seals, Grease gun and zerk fittings for easy maintenance.. still running very smooth after several years of abuse! ) when the mechanically cleaner pivot based anti squat systems have patents on them, designers of other companies need to get creative to come up with something to set them apart.
