Yes. That was my biggest concern when I first took it out. I was surprised how good it felt on the trail considering its width. Have two more sets of these hitting the snow soon so I can get some "unbiased" feedback.
Just got off the phone with mountain tech. I'm going to try a set. You need 16.5 inch shocks and the early nytro spindles. I have both required items on hand so it's not a big deal for me. It would be significantly more expensive if you had to buy both. looking forward to trying it.
