Spotted: Canyon's High-Pivot Carbon Sender - Fort William DH World Cup 2024
@R-M-R: I don't think any of this is news to you, but I think the main reason is that with brake squat figures, you have a rotational and a translational component of it, and you can have different rotational vs translational components for the same nominal value of squat/anti-rise/whatever you want to call it, and they actually give pretty different results, in part because they imply different axle paths which can have significantly different effects under braking. By contrast, while it also has both the tractive and the chainline elements that can vary, anti-squat has less variation in what works because you're usually not pedaling over massive high frequency bumps and your options/tradeoffs are as you say better understood and more obvious. And if you have an unaltered chainline, you've realistically got the same axle path for any given amount of anti-squat (for any given gear ratio and point in the travel), so then it really is same same for the sake of comparison.

First Look: Vorsprung's New Telum Coil Shock
@foggnm: all those shocks are solid units in their own ways, but in short: vs a DHX2: adjustable HBO, custom tuned, more robust wiper, custom valved rebound so no need for (or gremlins in) the HSR adjustment, stronger shaft. As well as a few other things we don’t need to say. vs a SDLX: much lower friction, custom tuned, no orifice HSC adjustment, more robust HBO adjuster retention. vs Ohlins: adjustable HBO, custom tuned. vs literally everyone: computed custom tune via our online tuning hub that is specifically calculated for you, your frame’s kinematics, your preferences and a number of other parameters that makes it substantially more thorough than anything else… AND if we get it wrong and you still don’t like it, can be retuned quickly and easily (as in, sub 5 minutes) by any trained Vorsprung tuner. Training is online and will be provided to any competent shop or suspension workshop who wants it, free of charge, so if you ask your favourite local shop to become a dealer and take the training, then buy through them, you’re a trip to the LBS away from a shock retune in a worst case scenario.

Can’t recall how firm the Jade X is but it’s reasonably firm (enough that the ride height is higher) and has a blowoff to prevent damage - doesn’t prevent sag altogether though, it’s acting on the damper not the spring.

There are visual similarities with the black/red/blue colorways for sure. Internally though, other than being a twin tube shock, everything is different.

Servicing should be pretty run of the mill. Nothing too crazy involved.

We aren't advocating that people do it on the bike specifically (it is handy for racers between practice laps though), it's more that it's THAT easy that such a thing is possible. If a rider for whatever reason doesn't like the tune we've given them, it's a couple of minutes to rectify rather than a big deal.

Our original protos had both, but we removed the HSR. If you know what you’re doing with the difference between HSR and LSR and you have a dyno to properly understand it then it can be somewhat useful. However, it very clearly is NOT well understood by 99.9% of riders, and within the rebound velocity range there is an enormous overlap between the effects of the low and high adjusters. Given that the shock valving is custom tuned - and very easily retuned (Sheeep in Israel can take care of that if required) - it didn’t make sense to complicate setup further in our eyes.
