@dirtprint45: The Push system is a pretty cool concept, but it's also literally 5 times the price, much heavier and less adjustable. Its biggest advantage is removal of sliding seals for 2/3 of the travel, but even then, it adds two more in the bottom out mechanism which still need servicing on a regular basis to function properly, plus you have components impacting each other mid travel which I'm not a huge fan of. Performance per dollar, the Luftkappe wins by a mile in my opinion.

@saulHT: The Luftkappe will work in your 34NA2 irrespective of whether you have the Grip or FIT4 damper. We are currently working with a number of places in Europe with more to be added to the list shortly.

@dv8zen: 2. The rebound adjuster is run very open to get a reasonable rebound speed. Rebound velocities have a certain ceiling anyway so choking is less of a concern than with compression. 3. They aren't distorted in any way. That's just what the changes result in! The Pike/Luftkappe comparison is very similar to the graph shown for the 34. The Lyrik and 36 have a slightly smaller difference between stock and Luftkappe because the stock configuration is better to begin with. 4. Sealhead stack reduction would be possible in some travel configurations. The reason the Evol change makes quite little difference in the 34 is because they put this enormous topout assembly in there that takes up a lot of volume itself. Evol is an improvement over the previous gen, just not by all that much.

@slipnjloc: Alright cool - that's actually an RC3 (yes confusing because the names are nearly identical) which we can work with. Shoot us an email and we'll get you all set up.

To address in order: 1. They're studio photos shot on a reflective surface, that'd be why :) 2. The stock rebound stack on the Monarch Plus in the medium or firm tunes does not open under normal use. At any realistic adjuster setting it doesn't open within the realistic range of rebound speeds on the dyno. It's essentially a orifice rebound damper. 3. The spring rate gradients aren't simplified or normalised. 4. The 15-17 36's architecture does not work with the current Luftkappe setup due to the equalisation needle system rather than a transfer port. Same reason we don't currently have one for the Boxxer.

Not sure whether you're referring to the RT3 (inline shock, no piggyback, which we aren't currently tuning) or the Monarch Plus RC3 (most likely this one!) but in any case, yes the Tractive + Debonair combination will be beneficial on the Rune. We have done a lot of testing in the past on the Rune, they're one of our favourite bikes to tune for.

They need to be done by somebody with the right equipment (vacuum bleeder + nitrogen charging equipment), not necessarily us. We charge $150CAD for a service on the Monarch Plus.

@Kramz: what you're describing is an inertia valve like the Brain and Terralogic dampers that Specialized have. The technology already exists, but whether it really results in the ride quality anyone would want is questionable. Sudden changes between resistance and no resistance don't lead to optimal traction or predictability.
