ARIA is not a simple high virtual pivot suspension. I-track is a patent-pending rear suspension system which allows pedalling performance to be tuned independently of any other design variable. At the heart of the i-track suspension system is an idler pulley which controls the length of the upper chainline, running between the front and rear sprockets.
As the suspension is compressed, the idler moves along a predetermined path (or track, hence the name), controlling the way pedalling forces are transmitted to the suspension in a way that is not possible with any other suspension design.
ARIA with i-track suspension system is a bike that performs ideally in every situation. Through the optimization of the position of the floating pulley, we obtain optimal anti-squat and anti-rise parameters, despite a very high virtual center pivot.
But, above all, we lowered the pedal kick by 30% compared to a traditional system, even reaching an absent kick back for the hardest ratios, this gives extreme driving comfort and a feeling of absolute freedom of the rear suspension.
