    Switch Tech and XX1 (SB95C)

    Hey guys, sorry for the redundancy..

    I had a few questions about the Switch Technology and running the XX1. I'm getting my ducks in a row to possibly make a purchase any day now.

    Does the rear end stay fully active under braking?
    Is the rear neutral (proper term?) using a 1x setup? IIRC, some suspension designs work off certain chain rings or behave differently on certain ones. I just want to make sure it's really compatible with a 1x setup.

    I'm doing my research this time to make sure I get something that will last me a few years down the road. I know technology improves every year but I just want something solid as far as performance goes.


    Thanks

    Every design works better with a specific front ring. Most designs right now are around a 32T front ring since everyone rode around in their middle ring on 3x setups. Either way it is not that noticeable. I run a 38T with my XX1 even though my bike (non Yeti) is designed to be most neutral with a 32T.
