Whatever your choice in mountain terrain, Maestro Suspension Technology expands your bike’s capabilities and boosts your performance. From ripping-fast trail bikes to burly downhill machines, it’s an adaptable rear suspension platform that gives you more control, traction, comfort and speed.
HOW IT WORKS
Maestro utilizes four strategically positioned pivot points and two linkages that all work to create a single floating pivot point. This single floating pivot point improves pedaling efficiency by counteracting pedaling forces that would otherwise create suspension compression (squatting) or pedal kickback (bobbing).
KEY BENEFITS OF MAESTRO SUSPENSION
Maestro’s near-vertical wheel path and linear spring curve allow the rear suspension to remain sensitive to both small and big impacts without “packing up” under rapid, sucessive hits or bottoming out from big hits. This results in better contact between your tires and the trail—improving traction, acceleration, cornering and braking.
Take a journey deep inside the kinematics (suspension analysis) of Maestro Suspension Technology. You’ll learn about its unique wheel path, linear leverage ratio, anti-rise characteristics and anti-squat performance—each specifically engineered to bring out the very best from your mountain bike experience.
