@sino428: Exactly! My previous Commencal Supreme v4 had quite a bit of feedback through pedals (or whatever you want to call it) under heavy braking in steeps. It's not like the presence of an idler autmatically elimates all those forces. Does an idler reduce these forces? Yes, but they arent necessarily erased. The HP Session has something like 9 degrees of pedal kick back. The older model lower pivot Session had something like 25+ degrees. https://www.pinkbike.com/photo/20406540/ I'm running my o-chain on 6 degrees and notice a subtle improvement on my bike.

@ratedgg13: O-chain absolutetly works. If it didn't, you wouldn't see half the WCDH field using them. The benefits get a bit fuzzier on idler-equipped bikes, however I can tell you that in MY experience, the o-chain provides an improvement on the HP Session. Given that TFR is also using repping o-chain on their race bikes, it would appear that I am not just some kool-aid guzzling kook. On the flipside, it's you who seems to be the band-waggoner here... Have you A/B'd an idler equiped DH bike with an o-chain? Or are you blindly follwing the gospel of some dude on pinkbike with some fancy words and a computer program?

@ratedgg13: Why don't you bring it up with the world's fastest racers to discuss further? I'm sure you would change Loris' mind using your supreme logic and facts! I've A/B'd it on my session and it's a bit better... I'd say 5% improved in certain situations. No noted downsides. But I'm sure Waterloo Ontario provides the ultimate testing grounds for DH, so what do I know?!

@ratedgg13: No dampening stickers for me, but I will attest that the o-chain, makes my high pivot Session feel better in a straightline through rough chunder and under heavy breaking points in the steeps. No adverse effects noted.

Lot's of HP rider run an o-chain, myself included. Yes it makes a difference. Perhaps less than other buts bike it certainly improves performace by a couple %'s. Don't believe me? Just ask Loris Vergier: https://www.vitalmtb.com/photos/features/pit-bits-1-world-champs-2023/loris-vergiers-trek-session
