What is suspension leverage ratio?

What is suspension leverage ratio?

A leverage ratio is the relationship between the movement of the frame’s rear suspension and the required force at any given point throughout the bike’s travel. As well, this ratio indicates the magnitude of force needed to compress the rear shock.

What is high pivot suspension?

A high pivot suspension design creates an axle path that closely mimics the travel of the fork. So instead of the rear wheel moving forward, it now moves in an arc up and backwards from the rest of the bike.

How can I make my suspension softer?

How to Soften Car Suspension

  1. Install softer shocks and struts. As the primary component that affects your vehicle’s ride quality, shocks and struts have a very big impact.
  2. Adjust the shocks to a softer setting, if you have adjustable shocks.
  3. Install softer springs.
  4. Replace the bushings in the suspension.

Why choose vpvpp™ suspension?

VPP™ is designed to work with the best available technology from suspension manufacturers that will be supported long-term. It doesn’t require novelty shocks and hardware that may have dubious long-term support.

What is the difference between vpvpp and DW link?

VPP and DW-Link. The Virtual Pivot Point (or VPP) and the DW-Link are variations on the four bar, and both fully independent systems use twin links to isolate the rear end. The VPP is designed to improve the pedalling performance of rear suspension, while retaining the ability to actively absorb bumps.

What does VPP™ mean on bikes?

And our bigger-hitting, longer-travel full-suspension bikes are exceptionally capable of isolating impacts from the rider so they can ride harder with more confidence in the very worst terrain. It means when you see “VPP™” on one of our bikes you know it’s going to perform exactly how it should for that category of bike.

How do I install the VPP packages?

After you have successfully built the VPP packages, you need to install them in order to run. Install the packages. You can install packages with standard package installation tools (dpkg -i on debian/ubuntu, rpm on RedHat/CentOS). NOTE: You will need root privileges. To install the package (s) on a Debian operating system:
