This winter Timbersled sent me one of their Mtn. Tamer rear suspensions to put it to the test. The Mtn. Tamer suspension is already well known in hillclimb circles as the best suspension setup for climbing the steepest, most technical chutes. However, this rear suspension also offers significant performance gains in deep powder and handles drops and jumps flawlessly when tuned right. Timbersled’s suspension has also proven to be incredibly durable over the course of this season.

    Wait until you see the gap jump that Matt Entz hits in the back country of Colorado on his first day with the Timbersled Mountain Tamer suspension….It was so smooth he hit it twice…I’m sure that Matt has a testamonial for this awesome suspension. Look for it all in BD 6.

    Great write up Dan, couldn’t have said it better myself. If I were to add one thing, I’ve been extremely happy with the service and advice from the guys at TIMBERSLED. Their advice on setup and what adjustments to try were very helpful for really dialing the suspension in for me personally. I’m extremely happy with my results and can’t wait for next winter!

    My only complaint has been the bushing, wish i could find some rubber covers that expand, pack those with grease with freshly glued bushings, it would be a perfect skid.

    I should have added an end of the season update. My plastic bushings also wore out by the end of the year. Fortunately it is a quick and very inexpensive fix. You may want to check out the 2010 updated bushings-
