    Haha Vena got Pwned by clever marketing. I like ancillottic drawing ties to suspension bridges and parachutes in describing their supperior suspension deezine.

    Pull - as a few before me said - is describing its swing arm to rocker arm relationship. instead of activating the shock like a turner, it works similar to an old giant DH team (not exactly like most jap moto's however). They have a nice compact design, and got around the swingarm-shock resevoir bottom out interference by going with the funky flipped resevoir design (which prolly throws alot of people off and further impounds the idea of it using a pull shock)

It used the same Works Performance pull shock as the old Buell Schwinn bike. Believe it or not, they had another prototype bike that used the same shock that was even more scary.

    I am not saying we kill all the stupid people, I am just saying we should remove all the warning labels and let it sort itself out.....

    I hope that you can see the difference in the way the shock is actuated by comparing it with the other suspension designs pictured in this thread that do use a pull type shock absorber (notice the spring hanging out one end on the schwinn & yeti?).

    I thought I read somewhere that you could only use there shock. something about an oddball EyE to EyE, and something with clearance issues

    Wouldn't surprise me. From reading the website I get the impression that they like to do things their own way. Interesting that they spec Marzocchi up the front, thought they might have had something a bit rarer & more exotic to match the rest of the bike.

    edit: i2i = 228mm, stroke = 68mm for thier DH shock - so yeah, oddball size.

    Thought it was something like that, In all honesty thats really the only ting that turns me off on there bike, Proprietary rear shocks are teh Devil. specially when you have a problem and need service!!!
