The dw6 suspension design represents the latest evolution in modern mountain bike suspension. Essentially, the design takes everything that’s great about the 4-bar dw-link design, and adds further tunability to meet the goals of a custom designed experience that RBC aims to provide. The 5th generation dw-link anti-squat performance is there, along with independently tuneable braking and leverage ratio characteristics. This offers a nearly unlimited level of adjustability from the factory. dw6 is a true design for the future, and one that will be constantly adjusted and improved to take advantage of the latest in damper technology and rider preferences.
dw6 is not just about suspension performance though. Structurally, the design was conceived from the ground up to work in unison with RBC’s titanium lugged construction, which utilises additive manufacturing. Stiff and compact links attach via angular contact bearings at critical points for long-term maintenance free performance in even the harshest conditions.
