The Arktos features famed designer David Earle’s patented dual-linkage suspension platform called “Sine”. The name “Sine” derives from the shock rate, which resembles a sine wave when graphed. The design creates suspension that is regressive through the first part of the travel to absorb small bumps and provide climbing traction, is progressive in the middle to avoid wallowing on big hits or in hard, fast corners, and is regressive again in the last 15 percent of the stroke so the bike can use all of its rear-wheel travel. It’s efficient, responsive, and provides downhill capabilities unparalleled in today’s crop of modern trail bikes.
