Glovebox

By drastically decreasing peak anti-squat, we additional decoupled the chain’s restriction on suspension motion to enhance each small bump sensitivity and sq. edge compliance. As a result of anti-squat values development with anti-rise, we had been additionally capable of scale back the anti-rise to enhance braking sensitivity on the brand new Tallboy 5.

Snappy Suspension 

In addressing the leverage curve, we discovered that decreasing development, each by decreasing the beginning ratio and growing the ending ratio, improved sensitivity additional within the journey and helped the bike trip larger in its stroke, producing a extra responsive, snappy really feel.

Geometry 

We mimicked our longer journey geometry to create a motorcycle with a 65.5-degree head-angle, beneficiant entrance heart, and brief offset fork. Chainstay size and seat angle are matched to the body dimension (STA steepens and rear centre grows as body dimension will increase) so that each rider, it doesn’t matter what top, will get the identical stability of geometry and dealing with traits.

We tailor stiffness for each dimension to verify everybody will get the identical trip high quality. Greater riders means higher stresses on bigger frames, however that is remedied with our size-specific body stiffness tunes.
