Same kinematics as the long shock kit for the carbon Levo with a necessary update to make it compatible with alloy frames. As with the original long shock kit, this allows the installation of a 230x65mm shock. The changes in set up and ride quality are serious. The link and shock will provide 165mm of travel and 35% progression. Combined with the 65mm shock stroke, this results in significantly lower shock pressure to achieve 30% sag without sacrificing bottom out resistance. In fact, you can expect to see a 20-25% decrease in air pressure with a 12% minimum increase in bottom out resistance assuming you keep a reasonable damping set up. For heavier riders this is a massive improvement, however, the link is not only applicable for heavier riders. Anyone who wants the best suspension performance they can find will benefit from this set up. In the world of heavy bikes that can shred, more shock stroke goes a long way.

There is one other change that has been made between the link for the carbon frame and this version. The two links that connect the seatstay to the seat tube and shock yoke have been combined into a single piece link. This does require more material and more machine time, so the price for this link is a little higher, but it's a change that we think is well worth it. It's another layer to protect the shock from any off-axis loads. You could say the increase in torsional resistance is infinite since it's zero with the two-piece set up.

Compatibility Notes:

For frame sizes S2 and smaller, shock selection may be restricted by frame clearance at full compression. Larger diameter shocks/springs, like EXT or a Float X2, can rub on some frames. We can't guarantee it won't affect your frame. If you see someone out there say it's fine and they have pictures and all, you may find things to be different on your bike. So please error on the side of clearance and caution if your frame is size S2 or smaller. If you are not okay with the sorting out shock clearance, which may entail running a shock that isn't your first choice, we'd recommend sticking with the link for the stock size shock.

Additionally, on newer frames (late 2023 and up) we have seen less clearance between shock and top tube at bottom out on a few bikes for some reason. We do not know why, but there are two likely causes. One, frames change as tooling wears over time. It is possible clearances have drifted because of this. Two, worn out shock hardware or bearings. Suspension is an entire system, so play can cause things to not clear as they should. The way these links are machined, positional accuracy of the bearing bores is around 0.0002". We have not changed the links and the machining is not randomly off. If you have concerns about clearance with the link, we would recommend going with an Ohlins TTX22 M.
