for their double wishbone.

How can Arctic have a patent on a dual a-arm suspention?! Blade uses dual a-arms along with Redline. They probably have a patent on a certain way they use it.

blade and redlines are set up differently tho...AC probably just has a patent on the way they have it set up, there shocks go in at about a 45 degree angle while blade and redline's go almost stright up and down...i dunno, ive always wonder why everyone's got the trailing arms when AC has never had them

I don't really thing you can have a patent on a 45 degree angle and there is really nothing unusual about the aws that you can patent. I know that the Blade is different for sure but I am sure redline is the same. I dunno why they went different. Just to be different I guess. It really doesn't matter much anyways because the EDGE suspention performs just as well as AWS does.

AC did use a trailing are susp. before I think 86 or something (not sure of the date) They did patent there double wishbone suspension system and I wish I had the answer as to just what it was for.
I got this info from a reliable source. Supertrax I think.
