We're fans of chasing progress, and the leaps and bounds that the mountain bike industry has made in the past decade alone is mind blowing -- but that doesn't stop us from always wanting to see just what's next.

Now dubbed the Charger 2. 1, the damper features tweaks to its high-speed compression damping to reduce harshness, and altered the low-speed compression settings to make them much more usable -- meaning you can ...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
