Named after a local DH trail in none other than Whistler, Canada, the Darkside focuses on inducing smiles and inspiring confidence through its perfect blend of stability and flickability. The suspension linkage provides a predictable but lively feel, similar to what you might get from a well-designed single pivot design, but with all the benefits that come from using the KS Link virtual pivot system. The benefits of this linkage over a single pivot are that it offers optimized active braking, a tunable leverage curve, increased lateral stiffness, improved axle path for the direct actuation of the Cane Creek rear shock to reduce DU bushing rotation and friction. The result is a very supple suspension at the start of the travel, which ramps up to give a nice bottomless feel towards the end of travel while tracking, carrying speed well, and minimizing pedal feedback throughout.
