What is Split Pivot?
is a patented suspension system for high performance bicycles, where traction, efficiency, manoeuvrabil- ity, and frame stiffness are important factors on the track and trail. The heart of the new suspension design features a concentric dropout pivot. Together with Dave Weagle's competi- tion proven engineering and testing process, Morewood have engineered a frame to combine the best performance traits of single pivot and long-arm linkage suspensions. Split Pivot is all about having fun on the trail, and each unique suspension layout is designed to offer a ride that will make you smile regardless of your riding style or ability.
How does it work?
The Split Pivot concentric dropout design separates acceleration forces from braking forces in the suspension. The system reduces excess suspension reaction to accelera- tion forces, and at the same time reduces excess reaction to braking forces. Braking neutrality can be tuned independently of acceleration characteristics, and suspension feel can be tuned by varying leverage ratio curves. With so many possible mechanical layouts, not every Split Pivot bike looks or performs the same. But therein lies the beauty, because it allows us to create the perfect tool for the job. And we have.
