The Tracer isn't really the only bike in its category that was given a severe remodeling this year.

The Wreckoning as well as Anarchical compliment each various other, yet they're different bikes. The Insurgent is a slasher trail bike. Much more bike parky. More BMX. All Wickedness have a comparable DNA to them. All do the very same thing with their lively mid stroke, the Wreckoning being no exemption. But it is our end all. Possibly you intend to go as huge as you can and ride the baddest things, or simply have an advantage on the enduro circuit.
The link is the same four bar, Horst link layout utilized in previous generations, however a minimized anti squat value and also the use of bearings at both ends of the trunnion mount shock are planned to boost suspension level of sensitivity compared to the previous generation frame.
