Review: EXT ERA V2.1 Fork
Also are we not going to touch on the fact that the little spring at the start of the stroke has a fixed spring rate that is going to work differently for riders of different weights? Something that was already an issue for DVO when using a coil for their OTT system...

Review: EXT ERA V2.1 Fork
"From then on, the floating piston that separates the two positive chambers moves freely upwards, and the volume of the positive spring effectively expands to include both chambers." In a simplified fashion, yes, but in reality this is not so simple. Because the ++ chamber is smaller, the pressure ramps up faster in this chamber than in the + chamber, so it will be a constant state of ++ becoming higher pressure than the + chamber which will then cause + to compress against the ++ until it reaches the new higher pressure of the ++ before moving the piston between them further, thereby starting the cycle all over again... Hence why this system is more complicated to tune than a just a simple volume spacer, but also allows a much wider tunability range.

@alexhyland: they can’t be bar ends if they aren’t on the end surely? Bar inners maybe???

SRAM Patent Shows Smarter Built-In ShockWiz on Forks & Shocks
I regularly get full travel out of my 2021, 180mm ZEB without too much effort. Even added a spacer.

Field Test Review: 2023 Nukeproof Giga 297 - Is Parkduro a Thing?
People like reading reviews about top of the range models. What would also be interesting is if they got two different models of the same bike and compared them to see how much of a difference the upgrades make

Video: Why Balanced Suspension is So Important
To my eyes, Bruni runs softer suspension than most of the rest of the field and also has a very balanced setup. It's not easy to ride that type of setup as it takes a lot of strength to move the bike when in the travel without the firmer suspension support, but it can give a lot more grip and speed in some situations. Edit: Your core strength has to be very strong to hold yourself over the bike and let it move below you rather than be supporting yourself and movements with the stiffer suspension.

Video: Why Balanced Suspension is So Important
@Dogl0rd: Not true, I am running 180mm Zeb 2021 Ult, 90psi for 220lbs rider (higher that recommended) with 1 token and can use all travel. Yes it does ramp hard at the end but my 2014 Pike did the same. I am also not a big hucker.
