I demoed a lot of bikes before throwing a leg over the Capra. What set the Capra apart for me was that I could setup the bike for good small bump response without blasting through the travel on bigger and faster hits. I later found out why; the Capra’s rear suspension was designed to be progressive enough to be compatible with both air and coil shocks. I’ve heard from other riders (usually 50 pounds lighter than my 220 pounds) that they never used the last 1/3 of rear travel and felt that it was a bit of a waste, I seem to be able to get deep into the travel without fully bottoming out.
