Dash gauge is smartphone based. You can even add a card and activate and use as your phone. Assume it will have GPS, gyro etc. built in like all smartphones. Varg has said their will be all manner of ride statistics available including "air time", so probably some other neat stuff. We don't yet know if one can use/run other apps while phone is clicked into cradle or if doing so locks out all other apps while its running in "dash gauge mode".

Appreciate the insight 😉

Hope the phone interface is wireless as I run a carbon composite flexible handlebar set-up ( reconstructed rotator cuff & left wrist ), the system requires a proprietary top clamp which allows for bark busters. Hoping the phone can go in a backpack.
Or .. I'll have to reengineer something if thats not possible.

Which bars are you using? The twisted engineering bar? I've really wanted to try the new level 4 flex but I'm scared they will break to easily, I've seen so many examples of them snapping on people in the middle of the woods. I rode a really rough woods track yesterday and my elbows and wrists got beat up so bad. By the end of the day I was hurting.

Yes those, along with hinged & dampened bar mounts & Dal Soggio CC inserts. On the rare occasion that I ride someone else's bike it feels like a rigid front end.
Have the 4X version. Wadded it up pretty good on several occasions & bars have held up fine so far.
.. nobody wants a face full of triple clamps - that's for sure. :)
Take a look at the Mako360 bar mount system ; run any bars you want without the fiddly bark buster arrangement of the Twisted Eng product.

The Makos' wouldn't work with my Reflex Racing handguards which I just put on there. How much do you think the 4x TE version bar would reduce the shock of those hard hits?

For me the TE bars are kind of a must, they mitigate sharp/medium/large impacts very well, there's also front-to-back forces in play that go unnoticed until one tries a system that moves in those directions. For some folks the flexible or moving bar systems aren't precise enough, too mushy & vague feeling. I've come to like mushy very much ..
Doubt the TE bars would accept the reflex mounting method as the bar end ID is much smaller than an aluminum bar, you'd have to bore it quite a bit larger I believe - likely not a good idea to be removing material from those given the material type.

Ime it's much more effective to reduce front-end hammer in the 12" of F suspension travel than in the maybe 1/2"? of flex-bar motion. I used to have pain in my neck/shoulders/elbows/wrists, but after my last AER makeover (in Suspension section) all pain is gone, and I feel nearly zero impact thru the bars. You don't have to do the air-spring mods (though they make a huge difference), but the Krooztune piston setup would have to copied exactly.
