I started another thread about dual crowns on ebikes, but it made me wonder what bikes are dual crown rated?

Here's some I know, and I'll email some more and see what we find out.

Ari Temp Peak
Specialized Kenevo
Canyon Torque:On AL
Salsa Notch 160
Haibike Nudro 8 Freeride
Crestline RS180
Ibis Oso
Forestal Hydra
Intense Tazer
Cannondale Moterra Neo SE

Anybody know any others?

Love that you're compiling this list. I would only buy a dual crown eBike because the suspension performance is by far superior, I will never get into bar spins, plus you have a motor so why not!
- Cannondale Moterra Neo SE
Not sure if the new one is certified

Neil from EMBN is rocking a Dual Crown on his Torque On CF, looks sick, but I emailed canyon and I don't think they officially support it. Maybe they have changed stance.

What makes a bike dual crown compatible?
Manufacturer saying so for warranty purposes. You can fit DC to any bike and probably get away with it but the CAD design case for loading will be slightly different as DC doesn't suffer from CSU flex and will transmit more peak load, plus there is the crash case to consider with steering hitting bumper.
