The Four By 4 system is the only suspension style that totally decouples wheel course from shock progression, allowing us to tune them separately. This permits lead to a higher level of efficiency compared to contending designs, and we can modify these efficiency worths for every model's designated application.
Our test version packs in a ton of worth. Bikers obtain the new alloy framework with Boost rear hub spacing, the RockShox Queen Plus shock with Autosag, a threaded base brace, SRAM Guide R brakes, an internally transmitted Command Message dropper and also Specialized's Butcher and also Slaughter tires with mid weight Grid cases installed to Roval Traverse alloy edges.
For as lots of things that looked spot on on paper, testers doubted the geometry. With a fairly brief reach of 444 millimeters on our dimension large as well as a few of the longest stays in the test at 438 millimeters, it really did not feel like it would certainly be able to hold its very own alongside the longer reach, shorter rear end bikes. Surprisingly, on the route these numbers didn't make the bike feel unusual or uncertain, as well as testers were impressed by its security the Ghost was among the best performing in a few of the worst sections.
On smooth climbs utilizing the system lever was practical, nonetheless when the Warden is truly in its element, we ran the front as well as rear suspension in the open settings and also included some low speed compression in order to help filter unwanted suspension activity. Problems were restricted to the particular and also troublesome Generator dropper as well as the bigger issue we all would've liked to have even more time bombing runs on this all mountain device.
At first look, the Ghost SL AMR X 9 LC has a great deal going all out. Ergon holds and an 800 millimeter Race Face Atlas bar and 35 millimeter stem supplied familiar convenience in the cockpit, while the brand new Walking stick Creek Dual Barrel Inline Coil CS shock had us frothing to get the AMR onto our long travel test loophole.
Pairing Yeti's patented Change Infinity back suspension with 29 inch wheels had already proved successful with the introduction of the SB4.5 c in 2015, but by expanding the platform to a long travel 29er the company could have developed its most qualified all rounder to date. The 140 millimeters of rear wheel traveling, delivered by a Fox Float X Factory shock, fits together nicely with the 160 millimeter Fox 36 Manufacturing facility fork, creating spiritedness while climbing up and instilling self confidence on beefy descents. The bike's 66.5 degree head angle also seems to have struck a reasonable concession between climbing as well as coming down prowess.
