I am guessing that they are tweaking weight vs shock travel efficiency. Logically speaking less shock distance=lighter but sacrificing comfort. I wonder all the world class riders such as Sauser and Kulhavy gave some inputs that extra 5mm of travel is worth additional gramsIf spec is correct it looks like the 2016 S-Works Epic WC has 100mm of travel vs '14-15 having 95mm. If this is a bike for 1.5hr World Cup like XC racing why is the travel getting longer and not shorter? This thing should have 80-90mm and be as light as can be, Come On.
