|Straight Rate Springs have the same rate every inch that they are compressed, which is fine on flat super smooth roads, but they lack the power of the multirate springs to handle today’s unpredictable road conditions. In Multirate Springs, each inch the springs are compressed the rate increases which results in a spring that absorbs small bumps, yet is firmer at the bottom for bigger ones. That gives you a more comfortable ride whether you are on a smooth or rough road.|
....if I were to do over, I'd go with Sonic Springs (straight rate) dialed in for my weight and riding style..
