Same kinematics as the long shock kit for the carbon Levo with a necessary update to make it compatible with alloy frames. As with the original long shock kit, this allows the installation of a 230x65mm shock. The changes in set up and ride quality are serious. The link and shock will provide 165mm of travel and 35% progression. Combined with the 65mm shock stroke, this results in significantly lower shock pressure to achieve 30% sag without sacrificing bottom out resistance. In fact, you can expect to see a 20-25% decrease in air pressure with a 12% minimum increase in bottom out resistance assuming you keep a reasonable damping set up. For heavier riders this is a massive improvement, however, the link is not only applicable for heavier riders. Anyone who wants the best suspension performance they can find will benefit from this set up. In the world of heavy bikes that can shred, more shock stroke goes a long ways.

There is one other change that has been made between the link for the carbon frame and this version. The two links that connect the seatstay to the seat tube and shock yoke have been combined into a single piece link. This does require more material and more machine time, so the price for this link is a little higher, but it's a change that we think is well worth it. It's another layer to protect the shock from any off-axis loads. You could say the increase in torsional resistance is infinite since it's zero with the two piece set up.
