I felt a little bit of blow-through on some of the bigger hits and G-outs, but that is to be expected of a cross-country suspension setting. It now has a higher heat capacity and less fade. Most riders switch the stock handlebar out for a different bend but rarely consider the seat. The high-pressure radiator features a 10-row, four-cavity radiator for maximum cooling efficiency. With the new mapping, I might even prefer the amount of roll-on connectivity it has.

Since 2014, the has been a class leader. You load one map in the standard position with the handlebar light out and the other in the optional position light on.
