Infinity. To the
Power of Six.
A Lesson in
A Lesson in
Sixfinity was born to accommodate the added power and mass of an e-MTB. To increase pedaling efficiency given how an e-MTB is actually ridden when ridden hard. And to increase traction for the kind of speed an e-MTB can really deliver, with the right kinematics.
A New Way to
As the suspension progresses through its travel, the Switch link rotates up until it reaches the inflection point. It then “switches” directions and continues to rotate down – creating the unique anti-squat curves shown.
Initiates shock and critical connection point for timing link to drive Switch link
Rotates around rocker link pivot to drive direction of the Switch link
Seamlessly changes direction at inflection point while controlling wheel path
Floating collet axles and pinch bolts on the linkage extend bearing life and ensure optimal, consistent alignment and smooth running suspension.
Adjustable Leverage Rate.
Sixfinity allows for a change to the leverage rate progression, while geometry, anti-squat, and anti-rise remain constant.
Three leverage rate settings are available on the 160E frame. The stock position is 30% providing a balanced ride. For a more supported and efficient feel just flip to the 25% position. For a plusher feel with more pop, flip to the 35% position (this setting is also ideal for a coil shock. A very small (2mm) travel change occurs between rate change settings.
25% Supportive and efficient. The most supportive, direct feel.
30% Most balanced. Balances composure with liveliness.
35% Plush & poppy. Increased ramp.
A TRUE SIX-BAR DESIGN. Fractions of a millimeter difference in the linkage lengths and pivot placement impacts anti-squat and anti-rise characteristics. It’s incredibly complex. It took a half decade to refine the system. Unlike many other “six-bar designs” Sixfinity uses all six linkages to control the wheel path.
