Ultralow seat stays

I haven't seen any talk on this one so I started a new thread.

Anyone know what the Kingpin suspension system is? Looks to be something on the junction of the seatstay....

Yes, The seatstays are super dropped for compliance but there is an actual pivot where they are fixed to the seat tube to provide even more vertical compliance.

I wonder if they will sell the carbon frameset on it's own...would be nice to upgrade my aluminium Topstone...

AND, the most important question: do these pictures proclaim the death of 1x? or are they just placeholders since the groups look identical on all pictures..
AND 2: why no Shimano GRX?

It seems the aluminium version will stay as it is and the SORA will be replaced with a Tiagra version?

I put up some info about this on facebook the other day but was contacted by danish and uk (i think) sales managers asking me to remove the post since it's all under embargo until today.

Very exciting news nonetheless! I was considering the SuperX as my next gravel/cx racing bike but new Topstone could be an option since I'm doing less and less CX.

Odd that they would reduce tire clearance with the new version. No pivot point at the BB, so the rear just flexes 30mm, interesting.
