The Habit's all-new suspension design philosophy delivers a bike engineered for every size rider, meaning optimized kinematics for all. Utilizing size-specific Center-of-Gravity (COG) data, the suspension linkage arrangement for every size of bike was tailored so that each rider experiences optimized suspension performance while braking and improved overall pedaling efficiency. Proportional Response optimizes Habit's ride for more control, more efficiency and flat out more fun.
