Cascade Components Announces V2 Hightower LT Link
By the way, with the shock removed and the stock link installed, the link contacts the frame as well. There will always be undesired contact with the frame if you removed the shock as it functions as the end stop for travel.

Cascade Components Announces V2 Hightower LT Link
Like we told you before, we tested your frame with the both links and neither were able to go over center. Even using force beyond reason. We don't know what lead to the shock going over center and it's unfortunate that it happened, but there were extenuating circumstances that caused it to go over center, not the link.

First Ride: The 2025 Specialized Stumpjumper Has a New Dual Chamber Air Shock
@seanfeezy: At the port pressure is equal in both chambers so it doesn't really dissipate when it hits that port. Just more ramp on one side of the port than the other. Honestly I'm not sure it'll be all to different from volume spacers in regard to rebound. The ramp from spacers is most pronounced deep in travel hence the end of travel wall feeling they can create. I believe rebound tune is actually a large part of that feel. Too slow at top of travel so the suspension spends more time deeper in travel. This shock seems purpose built enough where I could see the rebound tune being designed around this more so than other shocks.

First Ride: The 2025 Specialized Stumpjumper Has a New Dual Chamber Air Shock
@seanfeezy: I'm really curious about rebound tune. The both links and shocks can easily create similar amounts of ramp in wheel force. Where they differ a fair bit is rebound behavior. When you add ramp at the shock you get a larger difference in rebound speed between top and bottom of travel whereas when you create that ramp with the leverage curve you don't get that. So I would hope this shock has an aggressive high speed rebound tune to keep rebound speed down when it's deeper in travel.

Review: Fast Suspension Ride E Shock
Yeah besides HBO, the damper only ever knows if it's topped out, bottomed out, and how fast it's moving. Unless this shock has an internal bypass we don't know about. That said, there is an aspect of leverage that contributes to damping being more prominent deeper in travel. Damping force as you'd feel it at the wheel is inversely proportional to leverage ratio squared. So on any bike with a progressive leverage ratio there will be more damping force deeper in travel for a like wheel speed.

First Ride: Deviate Claymore MX
@seb-stott: He's not wrong. Mx+b can include regressive, progressive, and "linear" leverage curves.
