Looking closer the links and dropouts are different, maybe it's just a coincedence.

the seat stay says 180mm travel.

These days most have figured out that if a Horst pivot is used the linkage had better lay flat and move upward to promote a good wheelpath, this link would pull the wheel foreward i would guess but the BB height is also a factor. That's a lot of travel for AM.

If you click on the image on the site and inlarge it you can click and drag it around, check out the dropouts! steel inserts,way cool! Looks very freeride.

yes looks very freeride...as far as the linkage and overall design it's very similar, but detailing is nicer in some ways here, but the pivots look questionable, compared to the B52..
