    Bit funky actually, intial rising rate, then a falling rate. Thought being, a rising rate assists the platform in creating a firm riding position, then a falling rate once you're into it, to give a nice plushness.
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    I really like my Evolver! Pedals great and is super plush. It seems to know when you're pedalling and when you're downhilling.
