First Ride: The New EXT Era Fork is Very, Very Promising
Up until the + chamber reaches the pressure of the ++ chamber, the fork behaves as if it has volume spacers (the size of the ++ chamber), since the ++ chamber isn't dynamic during that time. Once the two chambers have equal pressure, then they behave like a single chamber with a floating barrier in the middle. If you look at boundary limits, you could start with + and ++ chambers at same pressure, which would act like a fork with no volume spacers and it would behave like a single chamber throughout the entire stroke. With very very high pressure in the ++ chamber, then it would behave as if it has one large volume spacer (i.e. the + chamber never reaches the ++ chamber during compression). So there is potential to tune for significant small bump compliance without as much ramp-up as you get when you pack a fork full of volume spacers.

Behind the Numbers: Ibis Ripmo V2
8.8 degrees of crank rotation becomes ~28 degrees of wheel rotation in the 32/10, I guess. And in 0.0325 seconds... ...so yes, I see your point on that. Thanks

@dan-roberts: . ..thanks for the correction, but the article also needs an update in the speed for the 10t cog, which should be lower than for the 32/24. Somewhere around 6.4 kph in the 32/10...?

@FlorentVN: suspension links are white instead of black. Custom touch, or different color option for Asia?

Field Test: Enduro vs Force 29 vs Slayer vs Mojo HD5 vs SB165 - 2020 Enduro Bikes
@monkeybizz: i too am an engineer. If it was truly over-engineered it wouldn't have broken in spite of mis-aligned bearings. That falls under the category of "fault tolerant design". And manufacturing process control should keep mis-alignment from happening, or should have caught it before it went out the door (QC inspection). I think the Slayer looks awesome, but this scenario is truly a fail.
