FSR suspension has been the benchmark for fully active, fully independent suspension design for virtually twenty years. Throughout our years of collaborating with it, we have actually obtained a deep understanding of exactly how subtle subtleties influence the way the bike rides and also really feels. While FSR modern technology is no more exclusive, that is not by any means to state that all FSR design bikes are developed equivalent. Understanding the best ways to make the very best use the design is as vital as the layout itself.
The DELTA link will certainly constantly put a wicked grin on your face, but also for a various reason on each system we locate it. On the Wreckoning, its mid stroke ramp up stood apart the most.
