    It's a modified single pivot. They call it "active braking pivot" or ABP. it's basically a faux bar setup.

    No.

    It is a type of 4-bar design, but not the same as a Horst Link. It is a single pivot with a linkage driven shock. Also known as a "faux bar". This term drives some people bat-sh!t mad, but there you go.

    It pedals like a single pivot, but does have the advantage of more active braking.
    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.
