The single pivot has a circular path of travel. The dual pivot is called VPP vitual pivot point and has a more linear travel, The blur is known for its abilty to smooth out the bumps under power without losing energy to the suspension.

But the platform shocks have made single pivots a more viable option again.

A platform shock basically adds some low speed compression damping.

When it is turned on, it will prevent pedal bob, espcially when you use the small chain ring. however, it does not affect high speed compression, so despite it can soak up the big hits.

The suspension will feel a bit more stiff when the platform is turned on.

If you want a sweet shock for your Superlight, look at the Fox RP23, or if you want to save a little money, check the RP2, they have 'propedal' which as mentioned above, eliminates, or at least severely limits pedal bob. I think it makes the ride entirely different and notice the climbing is much better.
