    Electronics on a mountain bike??!! Absurd!

    yea lol, seems silly.
    The same setup is done with the CTD and cable shifters.


    But then again the CTD with remote or terralogic where you can just relax and let the fork do all the work lol....

    Dont knock it till you try it. iCD is the best remote lockout system available. Cable-actuated lockouts are clunky and slooooow by comparison, and you're always second guessing whether you pushed the lever far enough or which position it's in.


    I'm running iCD front and rear and love it! It lets you squeeze every last bit of power out of your bike and legs and, IMHO, is a much better performance invest than lighter wheels. It doesn't matter if you have less rotational inertia if your squishy suspension soaks up all your power bc you can't effectively control the lockout while navigating technical terrain.


    With iCD, you never take your hands off the bars. So you can use it to do things like lockout travel to pump sections of the trail, lock it out on the exit of corners to maximize your drive, lock it for sprints and climbs, especially steep sections intermixed with rocky and smooth areas that require bursts of power.


    A HUGE benefit of iCD is that it lets you run your sag much much more plush since you can firm it up in a split second.

    I have terralogic forks. They work great once you get them dialed in, but I pretty much never do a total lockout on them. If you need total lockout, go with the iCD.

    The terralogic can be set to stay stiff on most climbs and flats but that just takes most of the bob out, and does not entirely eliminate the bob as if they are locked out. If you plan to stay on flats or blacktop, you could set the terralogic so they are essentially locked out but then they are locked out until you stop the bike and reset them.

    Hope that helps.
