about ten years ago they were the new cool thing for ramp champs ... if they were that great you would see em everywhere what we learned is yes you can get more droop but the tire on the low side has no extra traction because it doesn't have any weight on it ....

there is tons of reading on it on pirate if that's not good enough for ya lots of other reasons not to as well ...


just my 2c

i saw a scale on the weight issue.
the droop "apparently" held more weight on the tire through articulation then a fixed shackle. so that supposedly debunked that myth.

if its truly a ramp champ thing then i do not beleive its worth the butt ugly design thats for sure.

never seen a single one on the trails, thought i'd ask.
